I never thought I would end up on the front page of the Otago Daily Times only after 3 days in New Zealand (and even with a bigger coverage than the Oscars which were the night before!:))- and here you seem to be a real “celebrity” once you are in the local papers because everywhere I happended to mention that I spent the last 3 days trapped on a campground people said ” ooooooooh, YOUUUU are one of THEM!”..actually pretty funny!

anyway, now I am on the move again, finally seeing more than green wet grass and the inside of my campervan!:)
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, even the shitty things – and on day 2 I asked myself “what could be good about SUCH a situation?” – but I wa able to answer myself that question right away: I had the pleaseure and suck to meet 9 really nice and amazing people who I realisticly wouldn’thave met under different circumstances. 9 people from 6 different countries, each of them with great stories and travel experiences to share (we even had a TOP circus performance of one of the French guys with the “Diabolo” – GREAT stuff!
I am really glad that I have met those people and if any of you is reading that BLOG: thanks for heaving met you – it was the best “getting stuck ona wet piece of grass” Experience I ever had (and maybe will)!:))
tomorrow I will pick up my friend Mercedes from Vienna who will join me for 2 weeks (yippie!)
so long, me
