La météo est bien fraîche en cemoment … pas pour longtemps, mais pour l’instant restez cosy dans votre canapé pour lire un peu :
La dernière foi que je me suis arrêté sur la route vers les montagnes, Carole et moi avions laissé derrière nous notre ville adorée de Akaroa pour allez visiter les Alpes. Un grande journée de route; ce qui m’a surpris le plus en arrivant à notre destination du jour, le lac Tekapo, c’est que malgré notre avancée vers les montagnes je gardais le sentiment qu’elles étaient loin.
I hope the weather isn’t as cold where you are as it is here, perfect for a cosy Sunday morning though …
Last time I stopped on the road to the mountains, my friend Carole and I had left our beloved city of Akaroa to head to go to the Alps. It was a rather long road and one thing surprised me; when we arrived at our destination for the day, lake Tekapo, I felt the mountains were still very far away.
Il y a quelques temps, je vous avais promis mes aventure en Nouvelle Zélande et il semblerai que des événements ( du boulot ) m’aient forcé à repousser la publication de ces articles.
Quand j’ai commencé ce voyage, j’ai eu un peu de mal à passer en mode vacances, j’avais voyagé seule pendant deux jours avant de rejoindre Carole et il m’a fallu les fêtes du nouvel an pour réaliser que j’étais à l’autre bout du monde et je pouvais relâcher la pression.
A while ago I promised articles about my trip to New Zealand and it seems events have forced me postpone the publication of these articles.
When I started this trip, I had troubles getting into the mood of holiday, I had traveled alone for 2 days before joining Carole and it took me the New Years celebrations to realize I was on the other side of the world and that could start having fun.
You have noticed how calm January has been, for this blog it was, but for me it was an intense 3 weeks trip on the other side of the World!
I want to tell you a bit about my trip and I will do so over the weeks to come.
This first post is just a quick overview of my road and in future posts I will give more details.
This was really a first for me, first time I went so far, first time I traveled alone. But I wasn’t alone all the time, I had the amazing Carole waiting for me to go on a road-trip around the South Island for two weeks.So all in all I only spent 6 days alone, two days at the beginning and four days at the end. And this part of the trip was the most organized part, I had reserved all my buses and Hostels in advance.
The road-trip part with Carole was a bit wilder, we just had talked about the places we wanted to see and booked no accommodations. We had decided to go freestyle !
