NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand

Wellington, New Zealand.

   

New Zealand was one of the trips that goes in my history book as most active vacations because the things i have seen there are just amazing to describe.

Still i will try to give you as the reader of this site an impression of it.

 

As you may have noticed also from the other pages i am a boat lover even i have to be careful with the water since that would cause a fatal meltdown. Wow, these Australian police boats are going fast like lightning over the water with the big powerful engines they have. I think it's also the only way to control their borders because of the capable speed.

 

Wellington was my first city to see in Australia, and i visited the karori wildlife sanctuary and of course the famous Wellington zoo. Other places the visit are the St. James Theatre & Opera House, the Wellington City art gallery, downstage theatre, Wellington cable car museum and Te Papa Museum.

 

From Wellington i did travel to Auckland by camper and this is probably the best way to explore New Zealand because then you don't miss the pure nature that you will find on your way. Once in Auckland i did visit the Tamaki Paenga Hira, a Maori museum that shows perfectly the culture and history of New Zealand's early days. Also the Maori woodcarving treasures (taonga) can be seen there.

 

 

Of course i did also participate in the Manaia Cultural Performance, presenting a narrative song and dance of the Ngati Whatua O Orakei, which is the home tribe of the Auckland area.  Among Maori tribe members drinking is also a part of their social live and more then 80 percent of the woman and men are drinking beer or other alcoholic drinks.

 

Seeing my dancing performance and the way i consume beer i could have Maori blood in my veins also but comparing their brown and my white skin i think more related to a drinking Eskimo which can dance.

 

Cheers,

Snowman.
