Looking for travel mates from now until the 29th of January
Posted January 2nd, 2013 - 9:16 am by from Copenhagen, Denmark (Permalink)
Hey, I arrived a few days ago in Auckland and I will be in New Zealand until the 29th of January.
Since I didn't mane mych of a plan until now, but I do want to travel around and see as much as possible, I would be interested in teaming-up with somebody else who is traveling and want to see NZ.
I would like to spend some time also on the south island.

Even though you can find information about me on my profile, I should maybe say a few things about me, because I believe that it's important to have a match when I am travellnig, people with who I have common interests and travelling principles.

I work for an international organization in Copenhagen (Denmark) and I know how important is to understand the values of the people around me and to let them know my own values. I like to chat, I like to listen, and I am curious, i like to ask a lot of questions, if the other person is indeed willing to enter an authentic communication, going deeper than the polite conversation.
I also like to take my time to reflect on what I am doing and seeing, so I am definitely not a radio that keeps on talking.
I believe that we learn a lot by sharing our ideas and experience with the ones around.
I like straight-forward people, who understand what is the real message they are sending when they are opening their mouth.

I am up for taking bus, train, car share, etc. Hiking, kayaking, caves, simple sighseeing, partying, whatever is fun, challenging and enriching. So share with me your plan and I might jump in!

Cheers,
Sorni

Hi Sorin, I plan to travel around Southern island from 14th till around 21st of January. In the first 2 days I was planning to take a small overnight tour around Bay of Island on northern islan and then head to Christchurch. From there I have no plans but i was thinking it would be good to do the car share or rent a car to go around as it provides for more places to see. Let me know if you are interested or have any suggestions?

By the way, I don't have a tent or a sleeping bag o I was planning on staying in hostels.

Cheers,
Marina

Hi, Marina!
I wrote a longer message, but my connection dropped when i sent it and i lost the entire text. Damn it!:)
I think i will arrive on the south island around the 11th, and my plan is togo to Nelson first and Abel Tasman park. Then to follow the west coast, to Franz Josef and continue to Queenstown, Milford sound and then head towards Christchurch.
Would you like to join me for a part of my trip? I would like some company, since I travel alone anyway.
Keep me updated and we'll see where wd could join forces.

Smiles from New Plymouth!
Sorin
