After 19.5h travel time I am actually quite happy to have planned a additional night in Dubai. Well, it’s not as hot as expected but I do not want to complain … the sun is shining though ๐Ÿ˜ I made a Big Bus Tour to get at least an rough overview of the city … it seems all is taller, longer, etc here – at least according the tour guide … reminds… Read More

My last days I spent with going back to Christchurch. But straight was naturally not an option ๐Ÿ˜ instead I went for a quick look to Arthur’s Pass. One more time to see the New Zealand Alps ๐Ÿ˜ and I was again very lucky! It was raining when I arrived … but the next morning could not be more beautiful โ˜€๏ธ After my little detour I headed to Christchurch and my last… Read More

I started the day quite easy… with a stroll through the town and my holy morning coffee โ˜•๏ธ Later in the morning I went off for a shorter hike called ‘Rocky Mountain/Lake Diamond Lake’ Loop. It was an amazing 2-3h hike. The climb up was quite exhausting in the full sun – but absolutely worth it ๐Ÿ˜ After being back in town I relaxed and refreshed myself at the lake with an… Read More

Next stop is on the South Island – Nelson. So to get there, I booked the ferry and set over yesterday. The sea was calm and the welcoming on the south just breathtaking ๐Ÿ˜ the whole trip takes around 3h 30min, but the last hour is ‘the one’ not to miss – cruising through Marlborough Sounds till you reach Picton. From Picton I drove the Queen Charlotte Drive – a beautiful scenic… Read More

To get a bit time to relax, I stayed a couple of days in Wellington – Plimmerton to be exact. I spent most of my time with doing nothing ๐Ÿ˜ but still, I visited the Weta Caves, had a nice view from Mt. Victoria, chilled at the waterfront of Wellington and made a trip to Zealandia. I had wonderful sunny days and nearly got a sunburn ๐Ÿ˜ but it was so nice… Read More

The last four days I just spend in Melbourne and explored the city a bit more as well as prepared myself for the next step – going back to Thailand ๐Ÿ˜ Anyway, during the last days I went on the Free Melbourne tour and got some more background information about Melbourne. I did a short trip to St. Kilda Beach to see the little famous Penguins which come out of the water… Read More

My last day trip in this sense before leaving Australia … (the other days actually should be a bit slowed down … but let’s see ๐Ÿ˜ ) Anyway, I took the train to the Yarra Valley to visit friends I met 4 years ago on my travels in Ecuador – Bree and Jessy. They drove with me a bit through the valley before we visited the Healesville Sanctuary. Well, as I am… Read More

So, today was a moving day … Adelaide to Melbourne by plane – the fastest and more or less also the cheapest way (the 12h Bus costs 5$ less!) Back in Melbourne I met Sonja for a goodbye coffee – since she left later today for heading back to Germany into the snow โ„๏ธ I then just walked around and took some photos … ๐Ÿ˜ And got a long a hot fire… Read More

A great day with Sonja – and we named the day the 4 K’s … not real reason for it … just for fun ๐Ÿ˜ St Kilda: we went on the tram at the CBD. 30′ later we were at Melbourne’s beach – St. Kilda. Well, it’s not the nicest beach in Australia, but still pretty and a fantastic location to be ๐Ÿ˜ Kitty: Sonja found the little kitten… as a cat… Read More

After a great night in a super comfi bed, I went for a stroll around Melbourne. I ended up walking around 8h … And just saw CBD and part of South Bank ๐Ÿ˜ Ok, to be fair, I also planned a bit my next days > Grat Ocean Road, Grampians, Kangaroo Island, Barossa Valley … quite some activities planned before leaving Australia in 2 Weeks ๐Ÿ˜ so I am very excited ๐Ÿ˜
