Picture of the week

Picture of the week!


Thanks and goodbye to Carolin…

Our picture of this week is from and with Carolin – a participant of the INTERNeX Hospitality program – who left the country on Monday. The picture is made at the Rotorua Lake and shows Carolin, how she says goodbye to a great time in New Zealand.

We would like to thank her for participating in the program and being a good friend to many people her. We are looking forward to meet her again some day. Have a good time in Fiji and Los Angeles Carolin!

So guys, for sure Carolin can’t go to the Rugbygame because she isn’t in New Zealand anymore. Sad for her but another chance for you to get the tickets for the Rugby game next Saturday.

So look through your pictures and send us you favorite for the next “Picture of the week” until Thursday, 2nd of June and luckily you can enjoy a real Kiwi-Saturday evening.

Caro & Caro in Napier!

Hey guys…hope you had an awesome weekend. I have!

I spent the weekend with my friend Carolin from the INTERNeX hospitality program at Napier – a wonderful little Art Deco city! If you like architecture and wine you should definitely visit the Napier Region. You need to know that three years ago Caro had spent four month in Napier as an exchange student.

Arriving after a long bus ride at Napier we were picked up by Caro’s former guest parents, who offered us kindly to stay the weekend at their house.

First I was a bit skeptical but in the end there was no reason for it, because Ita and Peter (the guest parents) are the best thing that can happen to you, if you´re an exchange student. Friendly, easy-going, helpful and taking care about you in a really enjoyable way.

We had a nice long chat with Ita, who seems to never stop talking. She told us about all her memories with Carolin and all the other students, she had. We also talked about the upcoming wedding of her youngest son and the “outfit-problem” of Ita.

After a short stopover at Carolin’s old school we indulged in a delicious coffee from the award-winning café Cappadonna. Later I went on to the National Aquarium of New Zealand, where I met my first Kiwi and Tuatara, as well. It was really impressive to see these shy birds.

We used the late afternoon for a little bit shopping and spent hours in a shoe shop! Thanks to Peter we had the chance to try the Napier nightlife. He dropped us off at a nice place at the harbour with several bars, but in the beginning it was really empty. It started to get crowded when a lot of marines entered the “Thirsty whale”. In the beginning of the evening we couldn’t imagine that the night would last until2 am!

After a short visit at the market, on Saturday we made our way to the booked wine tour while still fighting with the effects of last night! The wine tasting was really good and professional but we were a little bit disappointed about the small chocolate pieces we got to taste at the chocolate factory and the small cheese board in the end.

However the vineyards were so beautiful and it was no problem to drink the wine…;-)  even if we still had a hangover. And cause we are always hungry we went on to “Brakers”, where Caro introduced me to the delicious Nachos with beef, been and baked with cheese.

Exhausted but happy we had a little walk back to our lovely guest parents and spent the evening with good talks and a lot of laughing.

So it became really hard to say goodbye on Sunday morning to these wonderful people who had been so great to us. But Ita offered me to come back any time and I really would like to see her again!

So guys if you have the chance, go to Napier – one of the places with a best weather guarantee in New Zealand.

Cheers, Caroline

Blues vs Stormers

Thanks to the Blues who are sponsoring our “Picture of the Week” competition, Philipp and I went to see the Blues vs Stormers.

Unfortunately the Blues lost the game in the last minute but we had a nice entertaining evening.

Together with a group of ten friends we went to see our first professional rugby game!

If you are keen on winning Tickets for the next home game of the Blues send us your picture of the week and maybe you will be the next lucky winner!

Have a great week!

Still don’t know what to do on a weekend in Auckland but you are keen to get out of your room?

If that is the  case we have a cool suggestion for you:

Tonight the Auckland Blues, the famous rugby team will play the Stormers. This will be a pretty cool game to watch because it’s the 2nd against the 3rd of the league. Checkout for some last minute tickets. If you are lucky you will get cheap as tickets for only 15 bucks.

What: Auckland Blues vs Stormers

When: Today, 7.35 pm.

Where: Eden Park, Auckland

Some of us will go there tonight so if you want to go in a group just give me a call 0220649084. I hope you will have a great weekend and maybe see you later at the game!
