From Jet Ski to Saturn and the Southern Cross

You’re probably wondering what these 2 (or actually – 3) have to do in common… While it might be easier to understand the linkage between the Saturn and the Southern Cross, it indeed requires a bit of imagination to connect the Jet Ski to it, so I’ll have to explain it a bit. Continue Reading…

Just A Perfect Day (To Jump Again)

We had such a perfect weather and such a great clear sight of any landscape yesterday that we just had to share with you few more beautiful pictures of the fox glacier area and the way back down to Wanaka. Actually it was such a beautiful day that it was a shame not to jump out of a plane (again) – so spontaneously (just 15 min. before the jump) when driving by Wanaka airfield, I have decided to go for it!

Helihiking On The Fox Glacier

YES!!! We did it. We finally made it to the Fox Glacier and this time the weather was on our side (Thx for everyone who crossed their fingers). Tamar & Nir (whom we met on the Tongariro track) got us hooked on this trip – a helicopter ride that lands you on the top part of the glacier for a 3 hours walk to discover ice “waves” and caves.

4 Seasons at the Milford Track

Yes, we did the Milford track. And yes, you bet we have tons of pictures to share with you.
Some of the people we’ve met before have defined it as a “walk in a park”… Well, I must say it was a pretty long and very wet park…

Of course, as you know me – it will take me a while to summarize a 4 day and almost 65 km (detailed distance calculations will obviously follow) track, so hope that I’ll be able to convey at least partly the excitement of it. Some tips are at the end as well. Continue Reading…

Speeding Down The Huka Falls

How does riding a speed jet boat in a 85 kmh, turning 360° and almost hitting the side of the river sounds like? FUN!
Huka Falls in Taupo are the spot in which NZ’s longest river Waikato is slamming into a narrow passage, dramatically falling 10m down into a beautiful pool. Further down the road is the Aratiatia Dam which is creating great beautiful rapids when open. This is the beautiful area we explored yesterday from up above and down below. Continue Reading…

Rapid 5 Water Thrill…

Things are getting a little more extreme down here at NZ. Yesterday we told you that Rotoura is the best place to watch volcanic action, explore the Maori culture and meet the local animals. What we didn’t mention is that Rotorua and Taupo are the the extreme Mecca of NZ northern island, so if you fancy anything from bungy to rafting – this is the place… Continue Reading…
