3rd of November 2011 Guam

Robert und Iwona waited with me at the airport until I had to go to the gate. Then to Guam. Arrived at 6 am at the Hotel and fell dead into bed. Had lunch with Dianne and somehow got through the afternoon. Then off to the airport and off to Cairns. At 11.30 pm I arrived at the airport. Hardly could fall asleep, so I watched TV. At some point I passed out.

4th of November Cairns/Brisbane

In the morning flight to Brisbane. John is working and just got time to pick me up in the evening. Used a free Wifi to Update everything. Had dinner with John and called it an early night.

5th to the 12th of November 2011 Auckland /New Zealand

Saturday the 5th of November 2011

With the arrival in Auckland I had my fifth airport in 4 days. I am done travelling for a while. The hanging out at the airports brought me a cold again. The weather in New Zealand is cold.

Sunday to Tuesday 6th to 8th of November 2011

Strange, but I have troubles to get moving here. The cold and the jet lag make it hard to fight gravity. The time difference to Palau is just 4 hours, but I have real trouble to go to sleep. I planned to dive the Poor Knights on Wednesday but it would probably not be too smart to jump into 14 degrees Celsius (57 degrees Fahrenheit) with a cold. Some other time. The last days I spend shopping Souvenirs and presents and I spent a day in Waiheke. Try to finish my Solomons Video, but I have some issues with my motivation.

Wednesday to Friday 9th to 11th of November 2011

The last days we had beautiful spring weather in Auckland. As I am feeling better I did some touristy stuff around Auckland.

Saturday the 12th of November 2011

Travel day today. Early start and off to Honululu.

12th and 13th of November 2011 Honolulu / Hawaii

Brigitte David und Moritz

Due to crossing of the dateline I woke up on the same day twice. The Apec conference here in Honolulu caused a minor traffic disaster. So I walked about 5 to 10 kms on Saturday. Across Waikiki and everywhere. In the evening I had dinner with David and Brigitte. We know each other now for 20 years (I am getting old). Today we went together to the beach and then I had to go to the airport again. Now I am waiting for my flight to Vancouver.

Monday to Tuesday 14th to 15th of November 2011

Yesterday morning I arrived at 6 am in Vancouver. Had two beautiful winter days, which I spent walking around the city. Today I have been to Stanley Park. As soon as you get out of the sun it gets really cold. A little preparation for Germany.

Wednesday 16th of November 2011

After the last two beautiful days it rained all morning. Been really lucky the last two days. Around noon to the airport and then off to Germany. Back to the serious life :-)
