Beside the astonishing nature here in New Zealand, a big part is also the Maori culture. So i visited the Whakarewarewa village (the living Maori Village). The place is next to Rotorua, in a unique geothermal valley. Beside a guided tour which gave a lot of inputs about their history and heritage, I enjoyed their cultural performance – which I really liked very much! I also spend some time walking through their… Read More

After a short walk of 15′ we reached… Read More

Welcome to Sydney! I just arrived yesterday evening by train from the Blue Mountains. My Hostel here is fantastic (YHA @ the harbour). The view from the roof top is just unbeatable – opera house and Sydney bridge 😁 Anyway, to get as much as possible from my Sydney stay (even though it was a cloudy and rainy day again), I joined today a free city tour. I did not know what… Read More
