Black Sandy Beach

In Best Posts 2015 Big Trip 2015 By Sebastian

On a stormy and windy winter day we said good bye to Mel and Shannon and Wellington and flew up north again, back to Auckland for our last few days in beautiful Aotearoa. We quickly picked up our rental car and headed straight west, out of town, to make the most of the last few […]

Beautiful Wanaka

In Best Posts 2015 Big Trip 2015 By Sebastian

New Zealand just keeps on delivering and being amazing! After a dark, stormy day of non-stop rain we left the Milford Sound/Te Anau area and headed over the hills towards Wanaka. Undulating snow capped mountain peaks flank the wide expanse of the Lake Wanaka valley and the ski season is just about to start here. Here […]

Milford Sound

Heaven is a place on earth …and it’s name is Milford Sound! I’ve had the fortune to have seen a lot of amazing places but there aren’t many that can compete with Milford Sound in terms or raw beauty, serenity and sheer remoteness. We’re in Fjordlands National Park, all the way at the bottom of […]

There are over 1000 bolted sport climbing routes just in this area, all within walking distance or reachable by boat and the place is a really popular winter climbing spot. No surprise really, there […]

After the big April 25th earthquake, Luca and I managed to get out of the Khumbu Valley and back to Kathmandu a few days ago. We headed straight back to the Shree Mangal Dvip School for Himalayan Kids where had spent several amazing days before heading to the Himalayas (read the blog post here) in the […]

Erdbeben in Nepal – Die ersten Tage

Am Samstag morgen bebte die Erde. Zuerst wusste ich überhaupt nicht was los war aber schnell realisierte ich, dass ein großes Erdbeben verantwortlich für die Erschütterung war. In den Stunden danach folgten weitere kleinere und größere Beben und plötzlich war jedes Gefühl von Sicherheit das wir hatten, ausgelöscht und Sorge stellte sich ein. Mein Sohn […]

Learning while Teaching

In Best Posts 2015 Big Trip 2015 By Sebastian

„While teaching you also learn.“ A truth I experienced again during the last weeks in Nepal. The highlights of our time in Kathmandu was definitely the time spent with the kids at the Shree Mangal Dvip School, especially the Senior student group called the „Vid Kids“. When we first arrived in Kathmandu, school was not in session but luckily […]
