Week #6 completed. 1 week left in New Zealand. You may have realized that the number of activities and length of distance reduced over the last weeks. We reduced our speed a bit and decided to select only a few last spots to visit and then rather stay a bit longer in one place.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing was our very first highlight of the North Island. It was challenging, but also tremendously rewarding with lots of diverse volcanic landscape. Let us show you what we saw!
We’ve arrived on the North Island and I think I speak for both of us when I say we were hit by a little bit of “travel fatigue” this week. I’m not sure if the term really exists or at least the meaning of it for us does probably not exist in English but I think it describes the current vibe quite well – wonder why?
Alright, so compared to the previous 14 days, week 4 was relatively uneventful. We were so glad to get some downtime in Christchurch in a proper home and finally catching up on so much that we wanted to get done.
A Night in Wanaka So, here we were: Wanaka. We arrived relatively late in the evening in Wanaka…
Right, so we’re kind of delayed here. We’ve accumulated some backlog in terms of travel reports. So it’s about time we give you guys a proper recap of weeks 2 and 3. More detailed reports on specific experiences will follow.
Those of you who know us know very well that we are mostly what you would call “City Slickers”. Yes, we like the outdoors, but there are limits to that. So having to camp during our trip is obviously a new challenge for us. Here’s how we’re doing…
Our first full week in New Zealand has come to an end and so we thought it might be a good time for time for a quick recap of the week and some of the insights we’ve gathered so far.
So that’s it. After some very intense last few days getting all our ducks in a row, it’s time to take off for Wellington, New Zealand. See you at the other end of the world.
