Autumn 2004

Autumn 2004 started with a weekend trip to the north island - I flew into Auckland, drove down to Tongariro and all the way back just to do the Tongariro Crossing, a six-hour hike in Tongariro National Park! Pretty crazy and expensive aye - I don't know what I was thinking ;-) But the landscape was certainly impressive, and here come the pictures. A couple weeks later I went down south to Dunedin, a nice student town situated on the east coast, not too far from Moeraki with the famous Moeraki Boulders. The first of May brought another highlight, namely the P party held by my flat. On the third of May, I flew up to Palmerston North for a get together with the other people funded by the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution. From the 15th of May, a german friend (Karsten) and me spent three days tramping and sea kayaking the Abel Tasman Coastal Track, one of the tracks designated a "great walk" by New Zealand's department of conversation (DOC).
