Singapore

Singapore. Back after 13yrs. Finally. I love this city, walking from restaurant to restaurant, exploring food stalls, eating the day away. Definitely my cup of tea. And the botanic gardens, the bird park, the bay gardens, etc. Perfect spot for a long layover, especially at 35 degrees. 🙂 and even the super skeptical and at…

Gorgeous Gorge

We decided to spend our last couple of days on Waihi beach and stayed at a brilliant bed and breakfast aptly named Beachfront Bed and Breakfast. Great place, lovely hosts, perfect location. Probably the best stay of this holiday. So I spent some more time playing with Harald, walking and running on the beach, soaking…

A dark wind is blowing from the east

When we driving down the scenic road to Raglan I nearly crashed the car because I was co-performing another Kreator song that had found its way on the playlist. Why is it that so many metal songs contain a line like ‚a dark wind is blowing from the east‘? Are they all eastophobic? Is that…

77 heißt ‚GrĂŒĂŸ Gott‘ …

We were driving from Napier to Stratford, Taranaki a couple of days ago and that was somewhat frightening. First of all, I saw this billboard on the side of the road for „SS showers“. That would be a complicated sell in Germany. Next was a billboard for „SS homes“. So I was starting to worry…

Eco Hippies from Outer Space

After three fantastic days in Whakatane I feel pretty safe to declare that this is probably really my favorite spot in NZ, Ohope Beach to be precise. 11 perfect, glamourous, lovely, charming, inviting, … kilometres of sandy empty beach with great surf. What more could one wish for? Well, maybe heaps of great produce from…

Sunshine on a rainy day

Our plan for spending the rainy day was extremely successful. Soak and swim for a couple of hours in the hot springs, spend the rest running on the beach, swimming in the ocean and eating heaps of real fruit ice-cream, muffins, and fresh berries at both the lovely Blueberry Corner and the even more lovely…

Sulphur Hotties

This is really the first year where we don’t have any itinerary at all, we just look at the weather forecast and then decide on the next two days or so. Of course this has the potential to turn into a classical TSP scenario, so lucky us that we’re atheists and have the brains to…

Dutch treat

We had another one day and a half after Geraldine before our flight to AKL on Sunday (I triple checked the time *g*) and decided to give the region North of CHC a chance, especially since it’s not featured in any guidebook or anything. And what a great choice that was. Again we had hit…

Masturbating eco sluts

Well, so we were walking down Mt John through a forest consisting mainly of fir trees. I think,  at least the branches had needles.  🙂  when, all of a sudden we stumbled upon two girls softly and rhythmically stroking such a fir branch. I tell you, this looked really bizarre and crazy, and the first…
