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


This is the last part of the coverage of the South Island. And it is a big one. Massive. This article is about the north east and North of the South Island including Kaikoura and the Marlborough Sounds. So help yourself and have a read. Or a look at the pictures. Or be crazy today and do both.

Enjoy whatever, Jakob


Hey Dudes,

5 Days ago I've got a Visa remembrance e-mail in my inbox. Main reason: I have to leave the country in 45 days. That’s sad. In the beginning I thought it will take ages until I need to go back home. Now when I look back it went so fast. Its all a bit different then it looked like in the beginning. Anyway, that’s how it is. So I will try to enjoy the left time as much as I can and make the best out of it. When you read this article, see the pictures below and also may have read the other articles you might understand why leaving will hurt quite a bit.

Enjoy reading this with pictures packed entry.

Hey Mates,

this part features the Catlins and Otago Region. Especially Dunedin where I stayed pretty long and had good fun this student city. Its already a month ago I went there. So to deliver a bit more present things: I’m back in Auckland at Johns Place working a bit and playing with their new puppy dog and puppy cat. And heaps of other stuff is going on you’ll may read about in a month. So far you have to be satisfied with this stuff, aye.












I almost forgot the Introduction this time. What would we do without it? I’m currently in Picton sitting in a Café to have free WIFI to finish this off now. I’m still far behind, but at least you guys get an update and some pretty pictures from the Milford (Sounds) Track and Stewart Island. Today I’m traveling back with the Interislander to the North Island. It’s a bit sad cause the South Island is great, impressive and just amazing diverse. I had a lot of fun here and hope I will be back sooner or later. There is still plenty of left to write about the whole east coast trip back up from the south. So look forward to it.

Choice bro’s and cuzzys












Wanaka was already my choice to chill out. I knew its nice there but didn’t expected it to be that nice. So instead of 2 – 3 Nights I spent 5 Days there. Did Winetesting or Skydiving for example. I went afterwards with Marco to Queenstown (two nights), to Te Anau for a 4 Day Hike on the Routeburn Track, back to Queenstown and back to Te Anau for the a Overnight Cruise in Doubtful Sounds. So a lot to catch up with writing.

Now, this is the second Part of NZs Westcoast. I drove down from Golden Bay via St. Arnaud (for nothing) to Punakaiki for the Pancake Rocks and to Franz Joseph to do the Fox Glacier hike. A lot of more story's and pictures coming soon. Enjoy ready.

Cheers J
