A Travellerspoint blog

te wai pounomu

the south of the compass, the anchor of the boat, the spine of the lizard, the king of the forest

abundant wildlife and unassuming locals make natural immersion a breeze!!!!!

WITH THE FOLLOWING:

four wheels and an atlas.

YOU, TOO CAN:

fly in bird land.
tramp around the anchor.
hop on the spine.
chat with a parrot.

i'm living proof it's possible, and i'll even give you a brief account what it's like to travel around an absurd land.

stunning scenery is the standard description of new zealand and it is well-deserved. a kaleidoscope of colors and jaw-dropping pictorial moments make one pulse with energy in an atmosphere devoid of bass beats and synthesizers. this one comes from the heart of nature. the beast in the woods. the man in the clouds. the boat that helped maui catch the fish. the maori lore brings the land closer to you. you are connected to it and it's power can control you.

my feeling in the bush when i saw two people and four kiwis in nine days. speaking to yourself and questioning your own thoughts, feelings and morals. signs of personal triumph.

back to the grand land. northern reaches with rocky beaches and snowy mountains with warm fountains. that's the story these days.

pictures say a few words, so read these for now :-)
