  • Tag 8Da der Tag zur freien Verfügung stand, beschlossen wir erst um 7:30 Uhr zu frühstücken. Die Sonne schien bereits kurz nach 5:30 Uhr ins Zimmer. Die Möwen gaben am Seeufer ein Konzert für uns. An dieser Seite war der See Posted by fegoeskiwi in FE goes KIWI | Nov 11, 2015
  • En-route to a Sunny Wanaka We are leaving Franz Josef today and ironically the weather has chosen to clear so we woke to a bright and sunny morning. Although it is a shame that we had not had better weather whilst we Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 11, 2015
  • A Wet Day in Franz Josef Having done the walks we wanted to yesterday we decided to have a really relaxing time today. It was a really wet and miserable day anyway and so dark and gloomy that I didn't wake up Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 11, 2015
  • Tag 7 5:45 Uhr Weckruf, 6:30 Koffer vor die Zimmertür und danach Frühstück, 7:30 Uhr Abfahrt. Unsere Koffer werden in jedem Hotel vor der Zimmertür abgeh Posted by fegoeskiwi in FE goes KIWI | Nov 10, 2015

  • Exploring the Franz Josef Glacier We had made some enquiries about doing a guided walk along the glacial valley but the guy Mike hadn't got got back to us so we weren't that hopeful. We got up quite early and as soon Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 7, 2015
  • Letting Someone Else Take the Strain We were awake pretty early this morning in order to watch the Rugby World Cup final. Given that we are now in New Zealand, and England have long since left the tournament, I was certainly Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 7, 2015
  • Tag 4Auf der Mitteilung der Reiseleiterin war gestanden: 5:15 Uhr Weckruf, 6:00 Uhr Koffer vor die Tür und Frühstück und 7:00 Uhr Abfahrt. Viel Zeit war uns also zum Ausrasten nicht geblieben. Dennoch hatte uns der Schlaf gutgetan und wir erschienen Posted by fegoeskiwi in FE goes KIWI | Nov 7, 2015
  • You Just Can't Do Everything!Our intention was to do much the same as we had done yesterday, but having ascertained exactly when high tide was, we aimed to get to the blowholes for around 2:30pm so that we could see them at their most Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 6, 2015
  • Paparoa National Park Today was our first day full day in Punakaiki and the Paparoa National Park and our intention was to stay nearby and explore some of the countryside on our doorstep. We drove northwards a s Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 6, 2015
  • Tag 3Ganz richtig gelesen. Der Dritte von Dreien. Die Anreise nach Auckland dauert wirklich drei Tage. Neuseeland ist, wenn man die Flucht von zu Hause ergreifen will, tatsächlich für uns am weitesten weg. Margret konnte wenigsten Sydney aus der Luft sehen Posted by fegoeskiwi in FE goes KIWI | Nov 6, 2015
  • Crossing the Alps We had a fairly early start this morning as the Transalpine Train that would take us across the South Island to Greymouth was scheduled to leave Christchurch at 8:15am. We decided to have Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 5, 2015
  • Christchurch: the Earthquake that Shook a City We only had two nights in the city which meant that we had just one short day to explore. We had some breakfast and then made the easy walk into the city centre where we were intendin Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 2, 2015
  • A Wet and Windy Day En-route to Christchurch We had set our alarms for just after six just in case the weather had improved enough for us to go whale watching. However it was every bit as bad as the weather forecasts had predicted with Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 2, 2015
  • Back and Forth to the Whaleway Station Today has been a day of mixed blessings. We woke up to a lovely sunny morning with the most amazing view of snowed capped mountains that we hadn't even appreciated were there. [ Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 1, 2015
  • Back to the Pacific Ocean We woke up to the most beautiful of the sun rising over the Sound and it felt as though this really set us up for the day. [img=http://photos.travellerspoint.com/725429/AF9F7C4BA476D Posted by Gill's Travels in Round the World in 140 days | Nov 1, 2015
  • Day Five: Palmerston North to Havelock NorthCold start to the day, southerly breeze – so wind chill on top of colder temperatures. Stages today include the Taihape-Napier Road – nicknamed The Gentle Annie, run in two stages, west (SS26) and east (SS27). JT and I haven’t Posted by EMTHOMSON in North Island Targa | Oct 31, 2015

  • Easter Island - Santiago - Auckland - Sydney We are pleased to find on check-out that they haven’t charged us for the internet usage. The £20 an hour we were quoted was obviously to discourage you from lingering. When we asked Victor yesterday what time our airport transfer Posted by Grete Howard in Grete's Travels | Nov 4, 2002
  • DetourAnyone who travels a good amount will tell you that being a smart traveler takes planning, research, and adaptability. As those of you who have followed me on previous adventures know, my trips usually involve countries where English is not Posted by mbeymer in Our Story | Oct 29, 2015
  • Day Four: Taranaki to Palmerston NorthThe 5 legs today include the infamous ‘Forgotten Highway’ to Whangamomona. Spectacular scenery along the way – definitely worth the drive (including 12kms of gravel). Yet another place that us from yachting backgrounds haven’t been to before. Our leg tod Posted by EMTHOMSON in North Island Targa | Oct 29, 2015
  • Day Three: TaranakiMisty rain to start the day, making the roads greasy in places. Total of six special stages from Inglewood to Carrington. Delays in starting due to safety tapes being interfered with but all stages finally run alright. Few offs – Posted by EMTHOMSON in North Island Targa | Oct 29, 2015
  • Day Two: Hamilton to New PlymouthAnother lovely day, more wind but at least the rain was nowhere in sight. Course for the day was to head to the Te Awamutu area for the next four stages. Only had one stage to work today as the Posted by EMTHOMSON in North Island Targa | Oct 29, 2015
