“Let’s dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?
Let us die young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad men
Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we’re getting in tune
The music’s played by the madman…”
Alphaville – Forever Young

New Zealand 2009 / 2010 – First days on the south island.

January 7th, 2014 by Addy · article, new zealand

After two great months in Ponsonby, Auckland, I wanted to start my trip to the south island. I woke up at 6 o clock in the morning and took the 12 hours train from Auckland to Wellington. 12 hours in a train sound hard but it was amazing as I spent my time watching out of the window and talking with a girl next to me about god and the world. When I arrived in Wellington I took a hostel next to the train station, had a beer with two English guys from my room at the hostel bar and went to bed. I propably felt into the deepest and most wonderful sleep I`ve ever had. I woke up early in the morning to catch the ferry to the south island. On the ferry I had “New Zealand breakfast” which was pretty much English breakfast and when the weather became better I went on the deck and watched how we approached the south island. I was totally flashed by the beauty of the nature. One of the guys on the deck told me that I probably had one of these “postcard moments”. He was right. When I left the ferry I arrived in Pickton and directly wanted to take the bus to Nelson as my travelling guide had told me Picton wasnt that exciting. Guess what! The bus had gone. I was pretty annoyed as they told there would be no bus at this day to Nelson anymore. So I waited for the next ferry and asked people whether they would drive to Nelson. I felt like a true backpacker now. When I asked one red haired guy whether he would go to Nelson he said “Well evetually. I actually have no clue where I am going” So we decided to take hostel in Picton for this day. In the evening we went to a pub in Picton and I loved it as locals were dancing traditionally to Irish music. It was one of my happiest moments on the trip as I really love Irish culture and music. Even though Picton was probably one of the smallest villages I had ever seen, I really enjoyed my unplanned day there. In the next morning we took the bus to Nelson and watching out of the window was again a real pleasure. When we arrived in Nelson we checked in the hostel Paradiso and the hostel was paradise indeed. A pool, a whirlpool and a an old bus in the garden where people were drinking and smoking. The people were pretty cool as well. I met two Canadian girls and together and together with the other people we celebrated St Patricks day, with beer and lots of sun. In the evening we went to a Pub in Nelson and danced through the night. We ended up in a karaoke bar, which was a lot of fun. The next day I went into a Hippie store ( Nelson is a town famous for its Hippies and artists} and bought beautiful bracelets. Afterwards I went with one of the Canadian girls on a hill and enjoyed the view. It was another great day in Nelson but after two days I wanted to move on. In the next blog entry, I will talk about my experiences in the Abel Tasman national park.
