Wild West Coast

Von am 21 Jan 2014 in Neuseeland | 27 Kommentare

Ich sitze gerade bei sommerlichen Temperaturen in Shorts und T-Shirt im Park von Wanaka. Vor wenigen Tagen hatten wir noch die Daunen- und Regenjacken an und freuten uns auf heißen Tee und Kakao. Da waren wir nämlich noch an der Westküste der Südinsel. Eines der am wenigsten erschlossenen und regenreichsten Gebiete Neuseelands. Dennoch oder gerade deswegen ist die Westküste landschaftlich besonders interessant.

Nach unserem Besuch im Cape Farewell mit dem bislang schönsten Strand, dem Wharariki-Beach gelangten wir zur kleinen Stadt Westport. Das Wetter wurde dann zunehmend schlechter und es begann in Strömen zu regnen. Gleich am nächsten Morgen, der Regen hatte nachgelassen, besuchte ich zu Sonnenaufgang den Maitiki Strand, ein weiterer landschaftlich Leckerbissen. Gegen Mittag als die Flut am höchsten war sahen wir uns natürlich noch die touristische Hauptattraktion der Gegend an die Punakaiki Pancake -Rocks an.

Besonders beeindruckend an der Westküste sie die Wälder oder der „Bush“ wie die Neuseeländer dazu sagen. Regenwald wie ich ihn so noch nicht gesehen hatte. Riesige Bäume deren Stämme gänzlich mit Moos bewachsen sind. Farne und Palmen wechseln sich  mit riesigen moosbewachsenen Bäumen ab. Jetzt ist mir auch klar warum der Silverfarn Neuseelands Nationalsymbol ist. Der Farn ist ist praktisch in jedem Wald zu finden.

Weiter südlich befinden sich die Gletscherzungen des Franz Josef und des Fox Glacier. Ganz kurz konnten wir hier einen Blick auf Neuseelands höchsten Berg, den Mount Cook, erhaschen, bevor sich dieser wieder in Nebel hüllte und Regen einsetzte. Über den Hast-Pass sind wir dann hierher nach Wanaka gekommen und wurden mit schönen Wetter belohnt. Deshalb werden wir hier sicher ein paar Tage verbringen, nicht zuletzt wegen der guten Rampen am hiesigen Skatepark, wie Emilian meint…

    • Kein Angst, Harald, so schnell seid ihr uns nicht los. Wobei, wenn der Winter nicht kommt, dann bleiben wir vielleicht doch hier in Neuseeland. Wir sind heute in Queenstown angekommen und es hat gleich mal auf 1000m herunter geschneit, und das obwohl hier eigentlich Sommer ist, verkehrte Welt…
      Liebe Grüße von Chris, Betti und Emilian

      • I have been so beeedlirwd in the past but now it all makes sense!

      • Losing Curzi could not have hurt that much as they will be playing in the county finals Friday. Also I am hearing that Gill just lost big to Rutgers Prep in the Prep state finals. Voorhees vs NH on Friday should a great game, Voorhees lost to NH twice this year, I can’t see it happening a third time, good luck to all teams playing the county finals.

  2. Wouha!
    Chris, fast jede Tage ich nehme ein par Minuten um eure Reise zu verfolgen. Seit eure Reise Anfang deine Fotos wirklich schön sind. Diese Mall mein Vorzugspreis gehe zu den Nummern 3 und 5.
    Schön Gruß aus Tirol wo es gibt eine Komisch Winter-Saison (kein Schnee seit ein Monat). Die Touren Ski im der Schrank bleiben, das ist ein bisschen Traurig, Ich nehme mehr Bauch als Muskeln ;-).
    L.G, Alex

    • Hallo Alex, freut mich, dass dir die Bilder gefallen. Zum Fotografieren ist es hier extrem gut und abwechslungsreich, weil Küstenabschnitte und Berge nah beieinander sind. Auch die SIGMA-Kameras machen sich hier in Neuseeland ganz gut (Bild Nummer 5).
      Das mit dem fehlenden Schnee ist übel, hoffentlich kommt er noch, wenn wir wieder da sind 😉

      Lg Chris

  3. Super Bilder!
    Ich würde mich freuen, wenn ihr wieder Fotos von euch hineinstellt.
    Ach ja, es schneit gerade! 😉

    • Danke Nico, ein paar neue Bilder kommen bald… :-) Endlich Schnee, wie viel ist es geworden?

  4. Hey, wohin es genau geht, steht noch nicht fest. Ich bin noch auf der Suche nach einer Gastfamilie. Zune4chst soll es zwei bis drei Monate als Au Pair in eine Gastfamilie mf6glichst auf dem Lande gehen. Da habe ich gerade Kontakt zu einer Familie in Queensland, die auf einer Rinderfarm 25km von der ne4chsten Stadt mit 80 Einwohnern etefnrnt wohnt. Die haben ihre Auswahl mittlerweile auf zwei Bewerber beschre4nkt. Diese Familie hf6rt sich super nett an, also drfcck die Daumen, dass es auch klappt.Anschliedfend, ab Januar will ich dann noch einen Monat durch Australien und zwei durch Neuseeland reisen. In Australien spiele ich mit dem Gedanken an einen Surfkurs entlang der Ostkfcste und einmal von Norden nach Sfcden durch das Outback. In Neuseeland ste4nde eher Wandern auf dem Plan. Quasi zwischen Orten mit dem Bus hin- und herfahren und dann an den Orten jeweils einige Tage wandern. Insgesamt soll es etwa ein halbes Jahr weggehen.So, nun aber zurfcck an die Examensarbeit, ich melde mich die Tage irgendwann noch einmal per Mail bei dir, versprochen.Ach so, ja, das Netbook ist von Toshiba, 10,1 Zoll somit schf6n klein, mit 219€ eins der billigeren, hat 250GB Speicherplatz, also genug ffcr meine Musik und Fotos, Akkulaufzeit von bis zu 8h ffcr’s Arbeiten im Bus und wiegt mit 1,12kg nicht viel mehr als eine Wasserflasche. Integriertes Mikro und Webcam fehlen natfcrlich auch nicht ffcr die Skypegespre4che nach Hause.

    • “Gollum—that psychologically complex shadow of a mind in stretched skin, slinking in the inky darkness within the heart of the mountain, pouring all his love and hatred into one thing: the ring.” This is the best description of Gollum in one sentence that I have ever seen. He’s one of my favorite characters of all time. Fascinating, tragic mess. “many hours where Bible chose no other paths” typo?I wrote a research paper on Gollum and Providence in The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings in high school. I am tempted to track it down and see what I think now.
