Camille's Reise nach Australia/ Neuseeland


7 February 2017

Northisland, new hope for better weather 🌞 First Stop was Wellington ☺️ What a special feeling to be in a bug city again. We made a New Piercing, took the famous cable car, walked through the botanic garden.. Wonderful city and you can do a lot there! ☺️ After that we went more North on the Westcoast. Again more landscape and beautiful mountains. We did little hikes up to 2 hours and prepared us for a big hike the next day! 20km.. famous hike in NZ, we were a little bit afraid😎 but it was our goal and on our bucketlist to do it😊 All in all is the Northisland warmer, but the landscape not so special and not so varied. 😜 But the sun is here and that is what we need🌞

28 January 2017

Big trip to a beautiful National Park! Abel Tasman National Park. We did a boat trip who bring us up to one Bay and than we walked to the next Bay. 15km - 4 hours - up and down - stunning view - and a final swim😊 It was awesome and the colour of the nature is incredible. Our last days we spent on a Parking - Campingplace in the middle of Nelson. All young people with Campervans were there and we met a lot of nice people. We went to the beach there, did some sightseeing, went on the Saturday market and before we took the ferry to the Northisland we had one last night in a wonderful bay called Robin Hood Bay. Wonderful view under a sky full of stars! ✨ From Piction we took the Ferry the next day to Wellington! Save in Wellington and now we have one month left for the NorthIsland before Janna will leave 😞 So we enjoy every second here and we are so happy to be here 😘 Xoxo Camille

23 January 2017

Hi there 😊 A saw a lot of new beautiful places in NZ. After Queenstown, we went to Wanaka. There we saw the famous and most photographed tree: The Wanaka Tree in the lake. Sunny day, we went for a dip and on a wine tasting tour🍷 A little bit more north we visited the blue pools. (They are so blue, even though it was bad wheater!) After that we planned to see the two Glaciers called Fox Glacier and Franz Josef. But it was raining all the time and we had no really a chance to see the glaciers. Our alternative soulution was to go relaxing in Hot Pools. Perfect bad weather idea😜 We drove up all the West Coast, made a few stops in Hokitika, Greymouth and the Pancake Rocks. All up to Westport🏄🏻 On a camping ground, we saw Glowworms in the night. What a expierience! 💕 Last days on the South Island were calling.. We met on the way to Nelson, two school friends from Janna and it was quiet funny to met someone from home! ☺️

20 January 2017

But there are sometimes bad moments.. We were stocked in the gras on the way to Milford, we had some problems with the brakes from our car.. so one extra day in Te Anau because we went to the garage. But we learn a lot and have so much fun together 😜 We are always positiv and do the best out of every situation😊 After our extra day, we drove more north to Queenstown. 💕 Omg what a cute town, little bit like St. Moritz☺️ We hiked up to the Queenstown hill, joined a free tour through Queenstown (It was really interesting!) and in the evening we went out for dancing 💃🏼🍸 Today, 22.01.17 we did the craziest thing ever. Nevis Swing, 70m freefall, 300m long, feeling like "Heidi" (ufem Rittiseili i de Berge) Adrenalin pur 😅🙈 It was amazing and a perfect goodbye to this wonderful town and ready for the next adventures more north on the Southisland❣️ See you soon, take care and enjoy the wonderful winter at home for me ❄️😘❤️ Cheers Camille🙋🏼

13 January 2017

Long time no post from me, I'm so sorry. The internet connection here in NZ is really bad 😋 We did a lot in this time🏃🏼‍♀️ We went to a wonderful Bay called Curio Bay, enjoyed a great view at the cliffs, saw yellow-eyed penguins 🐧 and a nice waterfall on the way.. We drove down to the most southern point of New Zealand. What a feeling, 18'000 km away from home.. ❤️ We had 3 days of free camping, so no shower, only water & TOITOIS 😜 We met 3 cool Kiwi guys (Kiwis=New Zealand guys) and learnt a lot about people in Nz. Quiet funny evening, saw a wonderful sunset 🌅, deepest lake in Nz. After that back to a expensive camping with showers😂 in TEANAU. Sweet little town, walked a lot and relaxed. In this part of Nz, the rain quantity is so high, 260 days raining / a year☔️ But still wonderful. From there we drove up to Milford Sound - unforgettable place - did a 2 hour Cruise in the Fjords, what a view, waterfalls and we saw Dolphins 🐬 All in all my life is full of adventures, surpris

hey 👋🏼 from the other side of the world 😁 Our Next Stop was Lake Tekapo / Mount Cook. For the first time free camping without a shower or electricity 😜 But we made it and had a great time. Lake Tekapo is so special because of his intense blue colour 💙 We had our daily big breakfast in front of the lake. In the afternoon we drove about 2 hours more in-land to the famous Mount Cook. The Maori call the mountain Aoraki and he is 3754m high. So we went hiking 3 hours - 2200 steps up to have a panorama view💪🏼😎 The nature is so similiar to 🇨🇭! 😍 After that we had one night stop in a sweet Campingplace in Moeraki. There we visited the Moeraki Boulders. Next Stop was Dunedin. Again a city, but so small that you can see everything in one day 😋 We went to the steepest street of the world, to the Otago Museum and learned a lot about the Maori culture, saw the big University, Railway station and the Otago Peninsula Beach called Sandfly Bay. All in all we are enjoying every second😘 xo

SYDNEY for New Year ✨🎉 We spend New Years Eve in Syney. Omg I never saw so many people in one city🙈 We went to the city at 8am just to stand in the queue to have a good place in the botanic garden😅 12 hours waiting in the sun for the firework🎉 But it was worth it! We had a funny day, playing cards, eating, drinking, sleeping and relaxing 😎 The next days we went to the famous Bondi Beach, we did a day trip to the Blue Mountains to go hiking there and I did the Harbour Bridge Climb. Sydney is so big! Just a few days were too little 😌 But I'm glad that I could see a little part of this wonderful city☺️ Now we are off to New Zealand 🇳🇿❤️ Ready for our 2 months Roadtrip 🚐

28 December 2016

MELBOURNE ✨ After Christmas we spend a few days in Melbourne. After a happy reunion with Cindy (last pic), now a super good friend I met in school, I took the train to visit friends in Bairnsdale☺️ 4hours to go.. Finally I met the Fusco Family😍 I had two wonderful days full of fun and family feeling💕 It felt like home and I was so happy to see them again. Thank you again Sonja😘 I tried for the first time to wakeboard (It is quiet hard😜) and had a great time☺️ After that I went back to Mel City🎉 Next day we did a lot of typical "touri-stuff". We went to the big library, walked around in the city, walked through the botanic garden and saw penguins 🐧 in St. Kilda ☺️ I love Melbourne but it chanced in the last years... There were a lot of homeless people and the city is not so clean. But still really nice and you see a lot of art there🤗 It was not my last time there 😌 I will definitely go back 💕

25 December 2016

21 December 2016

Last day of our tour we did a wonderful 5k walk to a lake called Lake Wabby. The Lake is in the middle of a sand dune. And in the morning we visited a lake and went stand up paddling (SUP). I tried a headstand 💪🏼 Next to this awesome weekend, things went wrong.. A girl got lost (Our guide found her again in the middle of Fraser😂), broken finger and one time we were stocked in the sand. Yes it was a really funny weekend and I'm so happy to have the oppurtunity to live the aussi dream 😜 Now our next stop is Noosa for Christmas. 🎄 I wish you all wonderful and relaxing christmas days🎄 Enjoy it and I miss you all😘 See you soon ❤️ Lots of love, Camille 🙋🏼

20 December 2016

FRASER ISLAND 😍 3 day Tour - Cool Dingo 🤗 Again three wonderful days with great people 💕 We hiked a lot and swimming in 3 different lakes. First famous stop was Lake McKenzie. This lake is so clear and have the same PH-wert like our skin. So the sand is really good for our hairs, like a conditioner. 😉 We met three guys from London and had a lot of fun with them. So many people from the UK are travelling in Australia. That is perfect for our English 😋 We went to the Champagne Pools which are cliffs where the waves from the sea breaking over. It looks like 🍾. We did a little hike up to Indian Head. Had a great view. (group foto) After that we saw the Maheno Wreck. So many memories.. I was there with my family 5 years ago❤️ Before heading back to the Resort we had a short stop at Eli Creek. This is a river where you can swim with the current. So you can float🏊🏻‍♀️ More is following in the next Post🤗

18 December 2016

We had a little stop over after our Sailing tour in AGNES WATER. We had two relaxing days, beachday and surfing 🏄🏼‍♀️🌅 It is a wonderful little town called 1770, because Captain Cook arrived there. 😊 Between the relaxing part there we had also stressful moments.. Our Greyhound Bus was full booked and we had no opportunity to go to our next Stop. So we booked another Bus which departed at 2:15am. It was horrible! We were so happy when we finally arrived in RAINBOW BEACH🤗 However, we arrived safe and were ready for the next adventure: FRASER ISLAND; the biggest Sand Island ☺️

Our next Stop was Airlie Beach - the worldfamous Whiteheaven Beach 🌞 First I met Sonja🤗 (Was für en Zuefall) She is a good friend from Carole and she moved with her Family 6years ago to Australia. However, I planned to visit her in Melbourne after Christmas. But she was in Airlie in Holiday and I saw her by chance 🤗 After that we went on a 3night/4day Sailing tour ⛵️️ Our boat called Anaconda. I had such wonderful 3 days🐠 First we sailed to the famous Whiteheaven beach and I had a little introduction about diving🐠 We went to a Lookout and in the afternoon I dived for the first time in my life! Omg! It was amazing and I got addicted! 😍 The next day we sailed to the Great Barrier Reef, I dived there 2 times and saw a turtle and a shark🐢 I met a lot of lovely people from all over the world and had a great time. To say goodbye was even harder.. 😌 But it was not my last time to dive.. ⛵️️🐢🐠💕 More pictures in the next post😘 Xoxo Camille
