The continuation! This August, my friend and I climbed upon one of Mount Ruapehu peaks, Te Heu Heu. Which is named after paramount chief of a Maori tribe of the central North Island of New Zealand. Or at least, we tried to climb, because for a proper climbing we would need climbing equipment we didn’t […]

Just wrote a small salary table with New Zealand’s salaries by main economy sections and occupations. Let’s say who earns what in a land of a white long cloud. Please keep in mind that all annual salaries are given before tax deduction. New Zealand has a progressive tax system. To find out after tax income, […]

Finally I got some time and implemented responsive email templates in this blog. Some of you probably already have seen these changes in . To be honest, even in a nightmare, I couldn’t imagine so many hacks in order to solve such a very simple task on a first glance as an responsive email templates. […]

Auckland CBD walking – High St, Lorne Sthttps://ivangrigoryev.com/en/auckland-cbd-walk-high-st-lorne-st/?utm_source=feed&utm_medium=rss Wed, 11 Oct 2017 23:50:30 +0000 http://ivangrigoryev.com/?p=55648

I fell in love with Queen Street as soon as I arrived in Auckland. Wide and very busy business street with scyscrapers and other attributes of city center. However, few years later, I started personally avoid Queen Street due to some reasons. Especially, because there are a few tiny alternative streets nearby, which go in […]

On a fourth day we had a plan to visit a place with mushroom stones and drive back to the camp. Then pass through Katu-Jaryk pass and drive back to the Chuysky trakt making a few more stops to view local sights. It was going to be a very long day since the morning, so […]

We stayed overnight in a motel in Kosh-Agach, which cost us 800 rubles for a two bedroom room. It was definitely not the best place to stay however, it was almost impossible to get anything better at 1AM. I have to admit, after spending the whole day on the road, we had a very well […]

I woke up in the morning having a slight headake. Looks like on yesterday I drank too much of sparkling wine. Or may be I just got a road sick. Or it was mountain sickness? Anyway, by 10AM I had drunk a cup of tea, had eaten breakfast and was ready for a new adventures […]

Last year I suggested to my friends to have one week journey in Mount Altay.To be honest, I didn’t believe we could organise everything and have this small road trip. Surprisingly, my friends have approved one week vacation for themselves, have bouhgt everything needed and, what is more important, have organised and prepared a car […]

We decided to go for a strawberry farm on our first weekend after we arrived back in New Zealand after having two month trip in Russia. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t start my car for some reason that morning. May be it happened because Forester became 5 years old, or may be it […]

What I do really like in New Zealand is change of seasons happens like a clockwork! I mean, autumn is very punctual and starts on the 1st day of March, along with rains, yellow leaves and the rest loveliness.. In one word – real goodliness! Historically, both Kohimarama and St Heliers used to be a […]
