Photo Overdose

Abel Tasman National Park
Kayaking in the Abel Tasman National Park on the New Zealand South Island, just a one-hour drive from Nelson, my home town in 2006.

Get your photo overdose right here on! I love the Silverstripe photo gallery module! I could finally upload a large amount of photos from the last 5 years to the new gallery section on this website in no time: about 500 photos in 19 galleries.

I know this is complete overkill, so below is a small(ish) selection.

Two Trips in Wintertime

Grampians National Park

approaching the Grampians National Park

Yuki and me went to Adelaide for four days. It is a very nice city in South Australia, about 10 hours by bus from Melbourne. The city is very calm, with a lot of green. There are some really nice vineries in the area around. If Melbourne is relaxed compared to Sydney, Adelaide really is slow - people have time and are probably the most friendly type of people in all places I have been visiting so far here in Australia. I forgot to bring my camera so there are no pictures now.

Some weeks ago I went to the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians again. Pretty much the same route, but in three instead of five days. Although it is winter here we once again had a very nice time.

Great Ocean Road - Day Three: All Along the Watchtower

Beach on the Great Ocean Road

On the third day on the Great Ocean Road we stopped at a watchtower. Actually we wanted to go to another waterfall, the Rainbow Falls, but for some reason we didn´t find it, so we made our way a bit across country to a lonely beach. The water was still quite cool and yeees: the sun is quite sharp in Australia. Amateur travellers as we are we forgot the suncream in the car.

Great Ocean Road - Day Four: The Sacred and the Whore

The Twelve Apostels, Australia

This is the typical postcard view of the Twelve Apostels, which are twelve (didn´t count them) huge rocks close to the coast. It is a nice view, that´s for sure, but there is also this ugly drawback.
