Currently I am sitting in an Jetstar airplane on my way to Sydney. And when I posted this article I am in Sydney. Which means I had to leave my favorite place on earth. In essence back to Germany. But with some stops on the way home. Look forward to new posts from the country of the high pitch girl voices with blond bleached hair where you have to get used to use mate instead of bro.


Only 11 Days to go. Literary. I’m already so sad I have to leave soon. But I’m not going to be sentimental right now here. Its too early for that and not the last post from within New Zealand. But it will be very soon, and that is sad. Anyway, have a read about the open house, my project in Christchurch and a bit of stuff up to right now. I think since I started posting I haven’t been that up to date I am right now.


Hey Ya,

this article features everything in between my way up north from Wellington back to Auckland. I passed on the way with Sebastian Palmerston North, Taupo, Rotorua/Lake Tarawea, Waitomo and Raglan. It was a way too short but good trip. It never happened before, sorry for not having enough pictures to decorate the text everywhere. Must have somehow forgotten to take some more pictures.

regards Jakob

IMG_0522Hey Guys,

I am not in Auckland anymore. I recently left it to head towards the so famous South Island. Everybody praises it so much and finally I will be able to make up my own opinion about it. Currently I am in Wellington finishing my last Job for the next three month, if nothing unexpected happens. So here is what I did so far since the weekend before I left Auckland and the North Island.

IMG_0067So now it is a bit more clear when i am leaving. I already now know its gonna be hard and i will miss all this here. Especially the family. For sure not as much as i miss my own, but not far from that. Around the 19th I drive to Geoff, hopefully make it finally to hike the Tongariro Crossing Track, visit Napier in Hawkes Bay for a week or so. Stop in Palmerstone North on my way to Wellington to replace their Server. Then to Wellington where i may stay at a cool place at a friend of Geoff until i've finished the last Server Job in Johnsonville. And then. Then I'm going to visit with my Schrotty by the Ferry from Wellington to Picton. And finally will step on the the south island. It then had took me eight Month to get there!!!. But this is still in the future. So back to the past. Have fun reading.

Cheers J

It is terrifying another Month is gone. And I am running out of time. I didn’t expected to work that long. Which is good to earn money but bad because it is the nicest time of the year to go to the South Island. Anyway I did some stuff except working. I had a breakdown, visited Piha, bought a camera, went to Wellington for Work and visiting the City, learned some about retired people in NZ at the RSA, went to Lake Tarawera with Friends … and a bit more.


Now half of my time in NZ is already over and 6 more month until I have to leave this beautiful country. We’ll see. The last 6 month have been awesome and hopefully the future is continuing being good to me. This post Its like it is in the Movie Seven Pounds. I would call it Work. Not only work but most of the time is about work now. But its fine. Work is mostly fun and I,’m glad that I have enough of it and get paid well. So everything is fine. And a bit of spare time is also left to do something or to just relax.
