my trip to New Zealand is only 16 nights, but packs a punch: it's full of breathtaking nature spots, full/half-day hiking tours at Fiordland and Abel Tasman NP ("Great Walks" for beginners ;)) , sailing, kayaking, renowned wine cellar tours, to name but a few. To save time, I have two domestic flights and a rented car during my whole trip. If you are -> easy-going -> love good, diverting conversations with lots of wine much the same as silent nature walks in the middle of nowhere -> need an adequate balance between adventure and relaxing YOU ARE MY PERFECT PARTNER IN CRIME for a part of my journey.

- entirely into nature. Mountains and secluded beaches make me feel relaxed - usually laid back but I love long, emotional, deep discussions about everything and anything as well as doing crazy, spontaneous things we'd love looking back on even after years ;) - enjoying nightlife and fancy bars once or twice a week if the company is entertaining - but not on a daily basis anymore - having a good balance between adventures and relaxation is important when traveling - being a part of an entertaining smaller (!) group of people and having enough time for myself is both ok and much appreciated :) - my passion is skiing, sailing, long-distance traveling, hiking, good wine and dine - looking for a partner in crime with a similar mindset and similar personality/interests.
