Sunday morning and it was time for a run in and around Montezuma. Every two seconds I took a picture which at the end resulted in this video from Montezuma, where I spend 4 weeks to enjoy the Pura Vida in Costa Rica and learned surfing and a tiny bit of Spanish.
Waikiki was the start and the end of my Hawaii experience. It’s a very good city to stock up your gears, e.g. snorkel mask, new camera (old camera got to much salt water on the Na Pali Coast) and enjoy the city life. When you get out of the city the true Hawaii begins, with amazing Nature. Here some impressions from Oahu, Hawaii:
Wow what a great spectacle on Pu’u’ula’ula Mountain in Haleakala National Park. After catching the sunset the evening before and sleeping at the summit (Thanks to my couchsurfer friend Jen I had enough blankets for the night) at
5:30am and the nightly sky awakes with hints of red on the horizon. Watching this at 10.000 ft and above the clouds awesome! Check out some pictures and the timelapse video from my trip to the top of Maui.
Waikiki was my first stop in Hawaii and I had the opportunity to watch some sunsets. Beside that I organized my trip to the other islands (Maui, Big Island and Kauai), stocked up my equipment, went running, snorkeling and enjoyed some amazing food but this is for another blog article.
This famous coastal walk was many times my running track for the last couple of weeks here in Sydney.
As you might know, I love running and especially in great scenery and today I got the chance to do this. Right after sunrise I went to the Hyde Park in Sydney, Australia and started my run which included: Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair, Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge, Kirribilli, Milsons Point (including a boat trip back to Circular Quay) and the Royal Botanic Garden.
From Taichung, Taiwan I went on a 3 day trip to Alishan National Park. Great walks in the park and the first impression what altitude of more than 2000m feels like. At least after 100 steps from my hotel to city center I was quite out of breath. But maybe it is just time to get more fit 🙂
Check out my first timelapse video (that’s the reason why there is still an Blog post from Taiwan although I’m already in Australia) with a forest walk in the National Park and of course some pictures impressions
