South Island 

Carnet de Pollux et Titus

next page

March 2005



We do not bring our "Gazelle" in New Zealand. We have left it in Sydney Harbour where it must be shipped directly to
Panama. New environment : a traditional camper van.
As usual, we are late in the season. Then, we start with the south island before the weather will change our expedition
in a martyrdom.

Mont Cook National Park:
The highest point of this wild country is among a national park suitable for a lot of trek. We make a small one.
Queenstown :

National capital (perhaps worldwide) of amazing, crazy, stupid, funny sports...based near a splendid mountain lake,
we spend an afternoon doing kart. The newzealanders are clear with their love of sports and associate all the family.
A forbidden activity for under 12 years old in France is great for 4 years old here.
After two quiet slopes, Pollux likes its game, gets self-confident and do not accept to get overtaken...

Milford Sound :

His Majesty the Milford Sound...perhaps one of the most beautiful place we have seen during the last two years. More,
we are lucky with the weather; usually, it rains everyday!!

boat trip on the Fjord...                                           ...going very very near the cascades.

                                                              sea lions in the sun

Wanaka :

lake, mountains, clouds (a lot...)... so, it is the south of New Zealand.
An enthusiast of labyrinth, thought games, magic... gets installed in Wanaka. The labyrinth is in thee dimensions...
we spend a lot of time !!

The Fox et Franz Glaciers :

access plain to the glaciers
away from each other by only a few kilometres, the two glaciers are at the sea level.

Pancake Rocks :


                                  Sometimes, we are really on another planet

Abel Tasman National Park :
In the North ofthe south island, this national park is accessible only by sea. It is a paradise for kayaking and trekking.
Our taxi is waiting for us.




                                                                    We are happy of the day
Nelson :
  In a little town, we find the musuem of
wearable arts. It is a great delirium. Even the prime minister (who is a woman) has weared one of those
the day of the parade. I would like to see our president with this kind of clothe!!!


                a great delirium !!!

Picton :

The crossing between the two islands is done by ferry. The weather is really bad today. We expect a big storm of
the roaring forties...
Here we the entrance of the straight of Cook; Strenght 8/9 and 7 meters waves... it moves a lot !!
