Picture of the Day 19.01.2016
I have reached the South Island! Just a 3 hour ferry-trip from Wellington to Picton and I was there. The weather down there was pretty bad but fortunately we drove on to Lake Abel Tasman and there the weather was perfect. Which meant I could jump out of a plane. Yes I did a skydive...from 16.500 feet...that's 5,2 km which is pretty high. But it was so incredibly awesome. Ok the first moment when you are actually falling out of a perfectly working plane was a bit scary but that wears of and then it's just incredible. You are falling so fast and you see so much, I can't even describe it. I know I have to do it again at some point. Oh yea and by the way Abel Tasman is beautiful as well, perfectly clear skys and no light. Well except for the moon which was so bright it made any pictures of the milky-way impossible. But the moonlight made for a great landscape-photo.
