Time for a new adventure

If it’s a broken part, replace it
If it’s a broken arm then brace it
If it’s a broken heart then face it
Hold your own
know your name
and go your own way
and everything will be fine
„Details in the Fabric“ Lyrics – Jason Mraz

Taking our leave of New Zealand is a lot harder than we thought, but we have […]

After we had recovered from the stress in Wellington, we came to the conclusion that rushing through the rest of the country and the rest of our time for some Last-Minute-Sightseeing Japanese style might not be the best idea. You guys apparently had the impression we have reached the point where we are exhausted and […]

Status update

We reached New Zealand’s capital Wellington at around 10pm on April 27th in a wet and cold autumn storm that matched our melancholic mood of farewell from the South Island. The menacing looking dark clouds had already built up when we arrived in Picton and they kept their promise of a rough ferry ride. We […]

on old and new ways

Time is running through our fingers like sand. It has been a long time since we last took particular notice of dates or the days of the week – we had only thought until the next hike, planned until the next destination, waited for the end of the rain. Some of you might smile now […]

A glimpse of Avalon

After thinking it trough from every angle we could think of, we finally gave up on the plan of the Heaphy Track. 5 days we wanted to walk through the Kahurangi National Park, but logistics and organisation of transport as well as the time that seems to run faster than we can keep up with, […]

Roadtrip up the West Coast

Beware of the Hug

I always thought one would travel to broaden one’s horizon: to try new things, improve the language skills, try out where the personal boundaries are, perhaps push them a bit further and decrease prejudices. To „get out of the personal comfort zone“ as a Korean-US-American told me the other day who has lived in 9 […]

(Back-)Country Roads

After we spent and enjoyed what felt like forever in Fiordland, it was time to move on. Our new destination: Queenstown! And how do you best explore such a region? Right, crusing around on the countless gravelroads with even more countless bumps and road holes. The good thing is that there are not many cars […]

Impressions of Fiordland

After we spent the last 5 days in Fiordland National Park with awe and amazement for this wonderful region, we decided we can share a much better impression of this with you without much talking…
…our activities in these past days are easily put in a nutshell anyway as we didn’t do much apart from walking, […]

47° South

There we were in Invercargill – the big city of the South. But like so many other towns and cities in New Zealand, Invercargill doesn’t really set a milestone in the memory of a traveller, so we have not much to tell from this place apart from that there is a very cosy backpacker in […]
