Day088: 5h for Christchurch are indeed too less. Such a cool place! On the last picture you can see NZ’s most visited attraction. A room full of polished mussels. Over one million people have already seen them.

Day088: Caught! If u find such a pic somewhere it is normally an intended photo, but here I just caught a perfect moment for taking a picture when the woman in her to the marble stairs perfectly fitting dress and hair climbed the stairs.

Day088: First impressions of a really lovely city. Some spots look still destroyed by the earthquakes (2010 & 2011), but they do a lot to make Christchurch very liveable, what the city actually already is.

Day087: Much more than just the light house. Or like lonely planet would write: “French-flavoured Akaroa bends around a pretty harbour on Banks Peninsula, with the world’s rarest dolphin frolicking offshore. The Summit Rd above snakes around the rim of an ancient volcano while winding detours lead to hidden bays.” Indeed it is a really nice place with a superb camping site and some cultural sights from the Māori. Let’s see how long it will take till our churches in Europe get such signals on their doors (last picture).

Day087: Is this one of New Zealand's best lookouts? Far away, it's just an ordinary schoolbus station...

Day086: The plan was to hitchhike from Mount Cook to Christchurch in the late afternoon. My next driver was an 60y old woman, Julianne. She told me she is going there, too. But not directly. We spent the next three days together till we arrived in Christchurch. The cliffs were our first expedition.

Day086: The blue of lake Pukaki is not just special - it’s really special. In the background u can see NZ highest mmountain, Mount Cook.

Day086: This is Mount Tasman. But what a defeat on the day before! I wanted to climb the highest mountain of NZ, Mount Cook, 3.724 meters high. The information office warned me it is pretty dangerous, people are training there for Mount Everest and hundreds of them already died. My answer was, maybe because they are from NZ, but I’m a German guy. Couldn't convince them with this argument. So I enjoyed the area from the ground. Not so bad as well.

Day086: Guys, I’m sorry, the last post was a little prank. I just enjoyed the glacier and the lake. German sense of humour is still unbeatable, because nobody understands it. I’ll keep on traveling. Don’t worry about me.

Day086: Monday's can be so exhausting... But I loved the first day of my new job. For at least the next three months I am going to drive Asians around the lakes of New Zealand's largest glacier, the Tasman Glacier and teach them all about the ever-changing glacial landscape and create some awareness about climate change.

Day085: On one of my hitchhiking stops I landed in Wanaka. People are crazy about this single tree in the lake.

Day084: First impression of Milford Sound, the 8th wonder of the world. Really impressive atmosphere with the clouds and the sun which was just breaking dramatically through them.

Day084 - On the way to Milford Sound: My first day of hitchhiking went very well, I made it from Queenstown to Milford Sound and back to Queenstown. But the landscape stopped us many times. Here are some reasons... .
