… Africa, Australia (+ New Zealand) and Asia

… time might have been on my side as I said in the previous post, but I do not let it 😉

Here I am then since the night of 17th, in Christchurch, New Zealand. Today as the first day in any new city, I went for a big walk. Christchurch is the most English town in New Zealand they say and it is true. A big botanical garden, a Arts Museums and Arts school, many cafes, bars and pubs and a lot of nightlife. Very nice indeed but it gives the sensation of a “fixed” setup. Anyway, yesterday I was checking the Global Gossip webpage and I found Alex, an Austrian who with I will share a car and we will be off tomorrow to see the rest of NZ.

He seems like a nice guy, he likes Lord of the Rings (just like me) and he is a hiking freak. This last one is particularly good. It means a lot of nature seeing, walking and photographing – the main reason I came here for. I also have to convert my two-week stay in something longer term. I am willing to go up to four weeks depending on the speed of our travel. In any case, if I see that it is not going my way (which I am not sure which is it so far), I will just split. I am really happy that this is solved. I would not like to pay for buses…

So… more news in the posts to come, tomorrow I will have to go and buy a sleeping bag and maybe share the costs of a tent and other camping equipment (a stove, some cups, knives, forks etc.). I will just keep the sleeping bag though, can’t afford a lot more weight on me 😉
