Neuseeland 2

Every kitesurfer has a dream….  My dream ever since I have been a small girl, growing up in beautiful, however, landlocked Austria, was to one day travel to the other side of the World and to explore ‘the last paradise’  (as New Zealand is known as in Europe).  I have heard so much about New Zealand, seen so many breathtaking photos, I soooo much wished for having the chance of one day checking it out myself.    My passion for waves and of course kitesurfing had stimulated this wish even more over the last years, NZ’s stunning coastline with so many worldfamous breaks just like the ‘outdoor-adrenalin-spirit’ of the local population boosted it right on top of my ‘wish-trip-list’, this year, my dream should become reality.

My trip in a campervan that took me 14.000kms all around Kiwi-paradise in a 3 month-mission of discovering THE best places to kitesurf delievered such a huge result in photos and stories, that decided to split my adventure into two parts.

This is Part 2: in this issue of my personal column “Kite & the Planet”, my journey starts at the highest Mountain of Newzealand, the Mount Cook and takes me over to the North island and pretty much once all around it 🙂  Read online or download the pdf and most of all:  Have fun !   …and feel free to email me anytime with questions or feedback.

If u haven’t already done so, here’s Part 1 in an earlier issue of, the greatest German kite mag around !
