Coromandel and the “Hot Water Beach”

Posted by admin On March - 4 - 2006

On the way to Coromandel an old gold-digger town and to the famous “Hot Water Beach” we stop at the Mercury Bay where I took some nice first pictures of the shore. While posing for a picture I felt so freezing because it quite cold and windy that day. So smiling was difficult…
Arrived in Coromandel we had breakfast. But the town is famous for it´s fish as well that´s why I walked straight to the fish shop and tried some smoked tuna. Mmmmhhhh delicious.
On the way to our backpacker in Whenuakite we saw this wonderful waterfall. It was actually my first waterfall on this trip so I got all excited.  Later we passed the Kauri Grove. Kauri is the famous New Zealand tree who grows hundred of years to be as big as a Redwood tree in North America. In fact they say in New Zealand grows the oldest tree on earth – a Kauri. Unfortunately the photos can’t show the giants in a more impressive way.
In the afternoon we checked in at the bagpacker “Sea Breeze” in Whenuakite. It was the worst one of all bagpacker. We had problems with hot water and we felt not comfortable there…The only good thing was, that you got your spade for the Hot Water beach for free. Because it makes no sense to experience that beach without a spade! Yesterday we had checked the times of the tights because it is nessesary to come at the right time if you wanna do the hot-water-experience. First you have to find a good place then you start diggin a kind of tub. You need to have some water in there beforehand. Important is the fact that the deeper you dig the hoter will be your water. Finally I burned my butt during sitting on a quite hot spot. Literally!

A short trip through the north of New Zealand

Posted by admin On March - 3 - 2006

Claudia the girl I met at the toilette at the airport of Melbourne invited me to a little trip up the North Island. I was pretty happy because now I will see some of the beauty and wonder of the famous NZ countryside.  On the first day we start at Auckland. Leaving in direction to the Coromandel peninsula. I met Claudia at her friends flat in Queenstreet. She organized a car for less money but it was parked at Devonport, the other side. Then we waited for Kay the third in our team and went straight to the harbour to use the ferry to Devonport where our trip began. I took lots of jungle pictures on the photos above. In fact they call it bush.

At the arriving in Whitianga I saw a wonderful rainbow, definitely a good sign. But pay attention to the order of the colors. They should be the opposite of the order of the rainbow colors over the equator. A few things here are different or the opposite…

On this day we only drove to Whitianga and stayed there at the Hostel “On the Beach”.

First day in New Zealand

Posted by admin On February - 22 - 2006

On my first day Blair showed me Bethells beach. It was a wonderful beach but windy. And it is similar to the beach where “The Piano” was made. Interesing is the black sand almost like ash. Somebody told me that on the west coast of NZ the beaches have these black sand and on the eastern side white sand. Later we visited Blairs brother and sister and there kids – four boys.
