New Zealand – North of the North Island

Last week has been my last week in New Zealand so long. There are far too many other places I haven’t seen yet to just stay there. Not much happened in that week. I finally went up the sky tower. I also went diving one last time at the poor knights islands just before I left for Sydney. These islands are a marine reserve where no fishing is allowed which is awesome for the underwater life. I was able to see a few sting rays, moray eels, clown nudibranchs as well as a lot of other fish. I also walked a few hours through Whangarei where I stayed to see Kauri trees and its waterfalls but that’s about it.

The photos of the last week are added at the end of the last New Zealand album VI. Around poor knights islands from the boat and of the sailing boats..

Sydney gave me a wet welcome. I did two jumps, each almost perfect with self-timer and at the first try. Whangarei falls and a short preview of Sydney:

      echt? na sehr lässig ..dezember bis februar ist wohl eh die beste zeit dafür. ja, muss noch ein bissl herumreisen – es gibt soviel zu sehen. (ausserdem hätte ich nach 1-2 wochen sowieso ein neues visa gebraucht)
