I’m right back from the Abel Tasman National Park. I was 2 nights and 3 days in there. If you come to New Zealand, this Park is worth a walk, it is very easy to explore and incredible beautiful. Tomorrow I will go to Christchurch for a night, and continue to Auckland for a night. After that I will say “See you again New Zealand” and fly to Singapore. Here are some Photos to get a small impression on the National Park.

I’m currently in Nelson, and prepared everything for my trip to the Abel Tasman National Park. I will spend 3 days and 2 nights there hiking and swimming. My trip to Nelson was very exciting. On the Bus to Wellington I met “Royce”, a good friend by now. We figured out we both like music, making music and making photos. So we chatted the whole trip to Wellington and it turns out he is meeting a friend “Moe” in Picton to travel the northern tip of the south island.

I will travel to the south island today, so here is a Timelapse of New Plymouth to enjoy.

Hey, I haven’t written anything for a long time now, which is because I was busy most of my days and in the evening I was to lazy. I’m frequently on the beach for a swim or surfing. But the CBD is also very nice. I’m often there to work in the Library. New Plymouth is a very nice place to be. The buses play music, there are endless beaches, on the horizon you see a vulcano with a little bit of ice on top and it is warm (or course).

I will be one of the first who will enter into 2018, because ‘The Day’ starts a few kilometers away from New Zealand. I did not much the last days, I just created a NixOS package for VCV-Rack and played around with that software a bit. When I published the package upstream, I realized again that NixOS isn’t only a very well designed distro it also has a very nice and helpful community.

I didn’t really wrote anything since I’m in New Zealand. There happened a lot, but there are not much photos. My Flight to New Zealand delayed around a day, because I could not show the airline a flight out of New Zealand and because I couldn’t order a new flight in 20 minutes, I had to take the flight on the next day, which luckily worked out. Anyway, I arrived at the 8.

Because I still had problems with my foot, there was not much going on in Valparaiso the last weeks. I stayed in bed, got fever, massaged my foot and watch crap on YouTube. Now my foot is getting a bit better, so I can start my trip to New Zealand in a few hours. I’ll fly around 12 hours, but will arrive 29 hours after lift of! So this year I will not have a 6th of December.
