Travelmate to explore & enjoy - camper/carshare Dec20-mid Jan
Posted December 16th, 2011 - 5:10 am by from Hamburg, Germany (Permalink)
Hey :)

Around Dec 20th, I'll hire a camper or car -depending on whom I meet for travelling- and go for something like that:

- Queenstown to Omarama, Mt Cook and back (that's a maybe, including a paraglide)
- Queenstown to Haast along rivers, lagoons and mountains the rugged westcoast up to Kumara and the stunning scenic pass of good ol Arthur over to the eastcoast, Christchurch (1 to 2 weeks, an Arthurs goodie is a must :D
- Up via Kaikoura to the Abel Tasman to canoe and hike there, back to Christchurch (around begin to mid of Jan, to reach Cchurch not later than Jan 14th).
- Catch another camper at Christchurch and go to Auckland within 5days (latest to reach Auck Jan 20).

I am very open to any suggestions to change this rough draft for the journey. And to give you an idea of myself: I am 33y, male, wind engineer travelling -just to let you know I appreciate a fine breeze and have and idea of how to handle a car ;) I like sports and am a passionate cook, will definitely do hikes and some adventure sports and stop where I like the nature to soak it in, or preserve it on camera.
Mostly, people assume I am around 27, guess that's due to my open attitude and the thing that I seldomly stop smilin :D

If you're interested, just send an email and please give an idea of who you are, where you wanna go and what you like. I am in Christchurch until departing.

See ya, hope you enjoy!
