Our tour started in the Kazbegi region in the Georgian Caucassus. We spend the first two days in the Truso valley. The next part started in Juta. We crossed the Chaukie pass in two days and continued the trekking tour via another mountains to Barisakho. This video features great views in the Georgian mountains as well as some travel tips to follow our steps.

Our main source of information about trekking in Georgia was: caucasus-trekking.com

Ali from couchsurfing Isphahan connected us to the ZDF team. They are working on a documentary about tourism in Iran. Our cycle tour with the Velomo Stufentandem (like a Hase Pino tandem) was also an interesting feature for their story, especially because we met a lot of people in Iran.

Always take a thermal mat, which is warm enough for your needs. This video shows, how we upgraded our thermal mats, when it was getting colder and we had no other choice.

We planned a 6 days trip from the the North to the South of the Kamai-Mamaku Forest Park. The intermediate and expected rain on our third day turned out to flood the streams seriously and forced us to turn back.

The tracks in the North Kamai-Mamaku Forest Park are generally intermediate but due to many river and streams crossings the track becomes quickly difficult during and after rain.

We kayaked three days in the Able Tasman National in march 2018. We had two short days of 3 hours inside the kayak and plenty of time on the beaches. First night we slept at Anchorage Bay Campsite. The second night in Mosquito Bay. The kayaking times from the department of conversation are very generous - even untrained we have been faster.

We looked for a place to sleep next to Queenstown. Nowadays even the DOC campsites are scenic and rediclous expansive. So we walked 45 minutes to the Basic hut called Sam Summers Hut and camped next to it. Camping on the track is not allowed, but next to a 1-3 bunk hut things must be different.

A two days tour from Avalanche Peak to Crow Hut and out. The track is for us advanced, even so DOC rates the track as Expert unmarked. Please, if you have not done any other advanced track in New Zealand before, do not attemp to start with this one.

There is a steep gravel descend to manage and there are now snow poles behind Avalanche Peak. We could follow the track easily, but not everybody we met on other tracks could do it so as well.

We were hiking over the Zit Saddle during Easter 2018. Which is part of this route: http://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/west-coast/places/kokatahi-river-whitcombe-river-area/things-to-do/tracks/toaroha-zit-saddle-kokatahi-lathrop-saddle-styx-river-route/

This was the most difficult track we tried in New Zealand, as the Saddle itself is only slightly marked and difficult to pass over in misty conditions, we had on our first crossing. On our way back out, the navigation in sunshine was quite easy.
The track is in the Kokatahi Valley a bit overgrown, but we did not attempt to follow the track deeper in, as our supplies were quite low for the long distance left to complete the route. Prior experience in New Zealand is trekking is needed, before attempting this track. You should be familiar with the thick undergrowth and alpine srup, as well as with the unpredictable weather of the islands. Also you must be familiar with mutual support method for river crossings and you need a personal locator beacon.
