After one more Night in Juergen on the Parking Area i'm driven to Dunedin to do Laundrey in a Hostel. The Plan was to find a Travel Mate in the Hostel, unfortunately the Hostel was full of Chinese People on a Bus Trip. SHIT. On the next Day i'm heading to the Otago Peninsula to see some Sea Lions, Seals and Yellow Eyed Penguins. Was a lovely Day with beautiful Wheater. The Day after i'm driven more to the South and forget my Jacket in the Car Park on Otago Peninsula. After a 45min Drive back i catch my Jacket and a Girl from Germany how wants to go South, too. Perfect. ... read more

The first Day with my new Home was gorgous. NZ is so beautiful. Every Second you mean you are in the Movie "Lord of the Rings". The Scenerys are so awesome. I can't find words. I'm driven from Christchurch to the small Town Mt. Hutt. The first Night i sleeped in Juergen on a Parking Area near the Trek. On the same Night i celebrating my 30th Birthday with some Cups of NZ Wine, Noodles with tomato sauce and a wonderful Star Heaven :-). On the next morning i start with a 8h Trek to a Hut in the middle of nowhere. The Day after 7h back to my van. A very beautiful Trek where you pass Rivers and Waterfalls.

After the Hitch-Hiking Desaster in Perth i searched for a Lift to Darwin. I found a cool Dude from Scotland and we shared a Car for 3 Weeks. We driven along the Coast over Monkey Mia, Exmouth, Broome to Darwin. Was a nice Trip: sleeping in the Tent, light up a campfire, have some Beers or Goon and a few Days without a shower :-) Some of the free Campsites were awesome. Kilometres of Beaches, no people, a big starry sky and in the middle of nowhere. Arrived in Darwin we slept by a Girl from Couchsurfing in a nice House with some other CS Guys. Tomorrow goes my flight to Christchurch, NZ. Thx Brian for your Lift to Darwin. Were funny 3 Weeks with you and your green Commodore "Hank" Conclusion: AUS is not my ... read more

After Tioman Island i went back to Singapore (with a big Toe Infection) and catch my flight to Down Under. The first Week i'm living in the House of a Couchsurfing Guy in North Beach. I met some cool Guys and we had a lot of fun on the Beach, playing Coins and drinking beer. Next Plan was to visit Thorsten in his new House. Here i had a lot of time to fix my Infected Toe. I went to the Doc and he gave me some Antibiotika Stuff. After 4 Days the Toe was fine and i made the Decision to go to Melbourne and Tasmania. Thx Thorsten and Annika for staying in your House and enjoying the "awesome" Food. Thx Mate... read more

Ubud is a very nice village with hundreds of Art Shops and Museums. Unfortunately the village is full of old touri peoples. The Nightlife don't exists. It's cool if you love Art and Museums, but you know - nothing for Mr. Hammer. That's the Reason i rent a Local for a little Trek through the Rice Fields around Ubud. Was beautiful!! The next Day i drive back to Kuta and have a look what's up next. Maybe with the Motobike to Lombok. I don't know.... read more

After Lovina i driven to Candikung. No Tourists here. Perfect !! I rent a very nice Bungalow nearly the Lake with a great View. A little bit more expensive then in Lovina, but it's the perfect place to hang out. The hole Area here is over 1000 Meter high, that's the reason i'm freezing in the night. The first time after Lao :) The Area includes some Temples and Waterfalls. But the best is to drive with the Motobike and have a look to the awesome Views around Munduk and Candikuning. The last Day i visit Jatiluwih - UNESCO Status Rice Fields. This Place exhaust your ability to describe green. It's awesome. unfortunately the wheater was a little bit rainy After the Days around Candikuning i'm heading back to the South. Ubuth is the Traget !! ... read more
