AlineHello Ladies, I'm living in a small village called Kromlau where the famous "Devilsbridge" is located. I am looking for travel company and people who can show me around a little. And I'm happy for a place to stay too just in case. :) If you ever need help when you are traveling through Germany, especially Weißwasser and the surrounding area, don't hesitate to contact me. I can give you a ride or can show you nice places. :)

New Zealand is amazing. I have travelled three times and strongly recommend hiring a camper van. New Zealand has one of the best free-camping set-ups in the world and so many fantastic campsites to encourage it. My fave highlights: * Waipoua Forest and the Majestic trees * Waitangi Treaty House (great history of Māori and White relations) * Waitomo Caves * Rotorua - Luge and the Thermal Pools * Te Papa Museum (Wellington) * Kaikoura - perfect bay for dolphins and whales * Franz Josef Glacier * Queenstown * Milford Sound
I flew into Queenstown. I had 3 days there in which I did a tour out to Mt Cook National Park, another tour to Glenorchy, and the cable car in Queenstown, plus a boat tour on the lake. Then I took a bus 8hrs to Franz Josef Town. The bus was like a tour, it stopped at various lookout points, a waterfall, Lake Wanaka, a fish farm, etc along the way. I had 3 days in Franz Josef Town. This is where the glacier is. I did a helicopter tour there. I did the trek around Lake Matheson, and another at Okarito. Then bus back to Queenstown for my flight home.
I travelled solo back and everything was amazing. I was homesick for NZ as soon as I got on the plane to leave. Queenstown was amazing. I also visited the Waitomo Caves and Milford Sound. I was on a Lord of the Rings tour and Hobbiton was awesome. I was also able to witness a Maori dance/experience which was breaktaking.
I traveled solo to New Zealand for 2 weeks. I never felt unsafe, people very friendly and helpful. Flew into Auckland, took bus to Rotorua. Spent day at Wakarewarewa, evening hot springs and massage at Polynesian Spa. Took long bus ride (9 hrs) Rotorua to Wellington. I took the bus because I wanted to see the countryside and it didn’t disappoint. Stayed at AirBnB in Wellington (Te Papa museum, cable car to Botanical Garden, also went to an All Blacks game). Flew from Wellington to Queenstown. Stayed at YHA Hostel (highly recommend single room). Took gondola up mountain then walked back down, took cruise on lake to sheep farm, also took a day trip to Milford Sound. Flew back to Auckland for 3 days before departing country, and was given tours of the city by a friend who lived there. Would loved to have stayed in New Zealand longer. Much more to see.
