I know, I didn't write for a couple of months but the problem was that I didn't have a really good internet connection at all the time. Sometimes I'm hiking or camping in the middle of nowhere so I'm completely out of service or the connection is to slow to upload photos and stuff.
My time in New Zealand is nearly already over. I just have 16 days left, it's unbelievable how fast the time passes. I'm here since October 2015, exactly 7 months but it feels much shorter.
There is a lot of things I have to tell you about. I meet fucking awesome people, made a lot of experiences and learned a lot of things about life.
Travelling it's not always easy, is not always fun, except if you super rich, but that's the point - you don't have a lot of money and you don't have a lot of opportunities, but you can always make the best of your time.
I really can't write about all these things that happened but I will tell you more about my most important moments in New Zealand.
In the Summer ( the summer in New Zealand is from December till February) I worked on a vineyard in Blenheim. Blenheim is the ''biggest'' city at Marlborough. Population: 30.000. Big city for New Zealands standards ;)
I worked 8 weeks at a company with the name Giesen Wines. Best company ever!
A lot of people in my hostel worked as a vineyard worker, but I never meet someone who had better conditions than me. We were only 14 People but it was a great time. We always get banana bread for Lunch, and a hot chocolate in the morning.
I think If I had to work again in New Zealand I would definitely go back to Blenheim and would worked on a vineyard again. I think it's one of the best jobs for backpackers. Especially at harvesting, you can earn a lot of money! It's not always funny to work by 35 degrees under the sun of New Zealand (The sun here is pretty strong and dangerous) but anyway I really enjoyed my time there.
I was in the best hostel ever, we were maybe 25-30 people and it was like big family for me.
Normally you didn't stay longer than 2 or 3 days in a hostel, so you meet new people, you talk with them but you don't have that deep conservations.
But everybody in this hostel stayed a long time because of work so, you get to know each other pretty well. I really made a lot of friendships in this time and meet a lot of people from other countries. I can say: Blenheim was the best time in New Zealand and maybe even the best time of my life!
In this time I met a girl named Emelie. She's from Germany as well and at the moment, we travelling together since 2 months. She lives in the north of Germany and I live in the middle, she wants to study the same course like me, so we just thinking about to studying together.
I think after the time in New Zealand we can say that we are really good friends, and I'm really happy that I met here.
Before I came to the south island of New Zealand I travelled with another girl named susi. Maybe you know her from my article before. I think it was my best decision to change my travel mate because susi was really depressive at the end and that was really enjoying for my mood as well. I don't know why she was so depressiv, maybe the thought to much about things at home. During this time I was a little bit homesick. It's really hard to travelling with somebody who is depressing as fuck and 24/7 around you.
But after I stayed in Wellington to find a Job, and she moved on to the south island, my mood get's better. I mean Wellington was a really hard time to, because I didn't find a job and I was running out of money. But my lovley Blenheim saved me :D
Anyway, we still are in touch but it was better for me to move on with Emelie.
I think that was enough for the first time. The picture you can see below are all from this time in Blenheim.
I'm thinking about to write a article with the topic: ,,10 places you have to see in New Zealand!
what do you think?
