A travel blog entry by katja77


Hokitika - Shantytown - Greymouth 51 km

Heute gönne ich mir einen Ruhetag und mache das, was normale Menschen in ihren Ferien so tun. Nämlich nichts.

Oder fast nichts. Es gab nur eine kurze Etappe nach Greymouth. Flach und mit Rückenwind. Also ganz entspannt.

Zu den Fotos: Das mit den Kiwis aus Italien scheint keine …

Seal Pups, Pancake Rocks und viel Meer!

A travel blog entry by ikeaelch


Nachdem ich also nun um einige Fliegenbisse reicher bin, ging die Fahrt weiter. Nächster Halt Murchison. Aber nur um den angelnden Moritz dort rauszulassen. Der durfte die Nacht nämlich im Zelt verbringen und war, da es mal wieder geregnet hat, klitschenass. Ich bin dann weiter zur Buller Gorge Swingbridge. Das ist die längste Hä …

Beach Bums

A travel blog entry by aknztrip

This is a top pick!

The road up the southern coast took us to Hokitika. This self-proclaimed heritage and cultural center of the west is first and foremost an artists' town. The area is plentiful with wood workers, stone cutters, and glass blowers. We got a taste of all three during our brief exploration of the quaint city.

Glancing at the local map, it didn …

Reise entlang der Westküste

Unsere nächste Nacht verbrachten wir im Fox glacier Township, am Fuße des Fox Gletschers.

Bad Weather, Great Beer

A travel blog entry by emersonsimon

This port town is also home to the Monteith Brewery. Monteith's is a beer that is comparable to Sierra Nevada's footprint in Northern California. They …

    Clean spacious and overly friendly staff. Relaxing and very unique. The best hostel in New Zealand (judging from the 20 I've been in so far). It lacks many freebies like breakfast or wifi but has kayaks and bikes to make you enjoy your stay

    It was love at first browse. We didn't even bother comparison shopping. Here we could chill for a few
    days, enjoy home comforts, and weather the weather. Global Village
    offered a cosy lounge with a fire lit by friendly staff everyday at
    5pm, free bikes and kayaks, cheap spa and sauna, a decent book
    exchange, a piano and guitar, and board games including life-size
