Then we headed home. I meant my accommodation in New Zealand. I stopped at lake Tekapo & Lake Alexandrina. A beautiful view from the hill... We went on to the famous church. Church of the Good Shepherd. This place is simply breathtaking. Considering that you have the lake and the mountains in the background. We continued into the city of christchurch. Here you can still see the damages of the earthquake, but there is a lot of searching for solutions and who knows. When I come back, the church may already be rebuilt.

Have you seen the video? I was shocked that even on the other side of the world this football club left its traces. At the end of the day I was there at my old accommodation and look who has already waited for me.

When you wake up in the night and hear the glaciers when they break. Then you know that this is a really great campsite. Admittedly, the night was the coldest with - 10° but also the most beautiful. This starry sky. Around you only mountains and no other light sources.

In the morning at 6, Felix is as always awake and goes for a walk. So you have your peace in the morning and you have your peace at all vantage points. Mount Cook with 3724m is the highest mountain of New Zealand. About 5 km east of the summit, Haupapa/Tasman Glacier stretches to the south and Hooker Glacier to the south of the mountain. One of the most famous glaciers in the area is the 27 km long Haupapa / Tasman Glacier. Maybe you can see it on the photos?! #vagabonding_time #natures #travelblogger_de #travelwithmeaning #travelgrammer #travelworldwide #plantbasedlife #reallifeandstyle #minimalismodern #newzealandboy #inspirits #followmetodream #adventurenthusiasts #adventure_time #digitalnomade #instadailypost #roundtheworldtrip #backpacker_photography #backpackerlifestyle #instagoodshot #worldtravelerpalette #passionista #mountainsnz #mountcooknationalpark #mountcooknz #tasmanglacierlake #tasmanglacier #mynewzealandstory #hookerglacier

It went on towards Mount Cook.
Of course you can't forget the dams.
I passed 2 lakes and 3 dams. The Benmore Dam is with 823 m crown length and 110 m height New Zealand's largest earth dam and part of the Waitaki hydropower project. With 540 megawatts, it is the second largest hydroelectric power plant in New Zealand after the Manapouri power plant.
Then I went on to Lake Pukaki where I took a little break and enjoyed the view. I had wonderful weather. In the distance one has already seen Mount Cook, now let's go...quickly there.
Arrived. On that day I was still a few hours on the way. But more about that in the next post.

A last view from afar on the city Dunedin. It was, by the way, the first city in New Zealand. Then I drove on to these beautiful stones. Looks like dinosaur eggs. According to legends of local Māori the Boulders are remains of eel baskets, bottle gourds and sweet potatoes that were washed to the coast by the wreck of the legendary canoe Arai-te-uru. Then we went on to Oamaru. Of course I visited the public garden there. This city has a very beautiful architecture and a small marina.

It was a day of rain and pretty cold outside. What can you do there, of course. Right, you go to the museum. In New Zealand there are some museums that demand money.
While the museum is freely accessible, there are some exhibitions that can be experienced for a small fee. One of them is the first step: Discovery World Tropical Forest.
You open a door and the hot air hits you when you enter this artificial tropical forest. You can see hundreds of colorful butterflies flapping their delicate wings from the ceiling to the forest floor a few floors below. Wonderful.
Then you can get to know some of the southern Maori culture or in the next room you might find the largest piece exhibited in the Otago Museum, in the middle of the Maritime Exhibition. The skeleton of a 17-meter fin whale dwarf. And that's just a baby!
Or the experiment area for the children. Well not quite, I have seen many adults and all people were really very enthusiastic about this museum.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you can become great too.

I love this quote! I think I always say that lol but it’s one I feel is really important especially in the world of social media where the game of comparison and the drive to get ahead is strong. .
Although you may never actually meet or know those who are on a similar path to you, don’t be a small person. Be big, and positive and support each other ☺️

Great words to start the week! I’m so excited today to go up a mountain! I’m not at Mt Cook though! This was taken weeks back! Follow my stories to see where I’m going ☺️

Whenever I’m blessed enough to travel my favorite part is meeting the people that inhabit these beautiful corners of the globe. Often it’s not the vast landscapes that stay in my thoughts but the conversations and connections I build with people while there.

@natgeotravel asked me to share my experience visiting New Zealand for the first time where I found this to be more true than ever. On our trip we met with native inhabitants of the island, the Māori, and talked about the connection they have with the land. We talked under the stars and learned of their traditions and heard their story of creation. We kayaked around the Milford Sound, one of the most breathtaking scenes I’ve ever experienced, and paddled feet from a species of penguin on the verge of extinction. New Zealand is the type of place that it’s hard not to feel at home. These are the experiences that won’t be soon to fade from my memory, regardless of the views seen along the way. More than anything human connection is what gives us life, no matter how diverse and different we all are. #MyNewZealandStory

That was a wind that day. The weather has changed so fast. As you can see from the pictures. I did not understand the sign. That is to say. I am not allowed to jump off the cliff into the water?!🤷🏻‍♂️
Arrived at the campsite in the evening. So many live in the bus or travel with it.

Still life, Northland New Zealand. I had never been to this exact spot when I visited, yet it all felt familiar because my husband had lived here before we met, and I’ve heard so many stories over the years.

I love carvings. My home is a collection of masks and sculptures from around the world. So, you can imagine how much I loved spending time with a master carver and his students at @te_puia You can feel their passion and their ancestral connection in every piece on site. I didn’t feel a need to take a carving home to retain the feeling. It was enough to have been there, in the presence of that spirit, in the place where they belonged. #mynewzealandstory #onassignment @natgeo @purenewzealand #natgeoambassador

Ten days since I left my family and flew around the world to meet these strangers who I now proudly consider my friends. They, and so many more, turned a work trip into an experience I’ll always treasure. I’m in awe of my fellow storytellers @abstractsunday and @erikalarsen888. I’m inspired by the creative genius of @the_real_tom_king @reelfactory and @miles_holden. And even more in love with @purenewzealand Can’t wait until the world gets to see their combined efforts in a few short weeks. #mynewzealandstory #onassignment @natgeo #natgeoambassador

I'm home ❤️ Home is always where the people who love me the most, and I them, are. Every adventure, especially those I'm a little nervous about and set out on alone initially, I discover more of who I am and what I am made of. I gain a little more motivation to become a better version of me, to work on some traits I don't love. That in itself is priceless.
I'm not a particularly "outdoorsy" person, but this princess stepped outside her comfort zone and "tramped", walked, kayaked, explored my way around New Zealand... And I loved it! Well... almost all of it. I was pretty bitchy the few times I was wet and cold 🤣

My 2nd favorite part of travel is other people. Learning all about what makes us different across the globe, yet how alike we are. This trip was particularly powerful. I was able to experience Kiwi's "Manaakitanga"and get to know the culture more deeply than normal due to how long we were there, and what we did. Each day truly immersed us. Coolest of all was experiencing this with the team of Travel Ambassadors from Scotland, UK, Germany and San Francisco. We quickly became a Whackado Whānau (crazy family) and I'll always treasure that bond and this adventure ❤️ I'll say it again, there is something magical about New Zealand!! I'm so thankful for my time there and crazy proud to represent the country as a Travel Ambassador! I strongly encourage everyone to get there as soon as possible. JCo can help with that 😉

I have more pics and stories to share in time. #NZExploreAgents on assignment with 100% Pure New Zealand #mynewzealandstory

It already feels like a dream. This second trip to @purenewzealand was a reminder that although it is so much more than a pretty picture, it is that too. #mynewzealandstory #onassignment @natgeo @purenewzealand #natgeoambassador

That’s a wrap. What an amazing 8 days! Great insights on production, while being able to share it with some fantastic people. Humbling to have been able to come along. So long, New Zealand ✌🏻❤️🇳🇿
