Our bikes and bodies have had enough rest, so we decided to go cycling again before we really have to go back to work. It wasn’t hard to pick New Zealand as a destination because it’s summer there now and therefor a good period to be there. We booked our tickets last week; we leave on Sunday, January 11 for a 3 month trip to faraway New Zealand.
We will fly to Christchurch, on the South Island, and will start our trip there. First we’ll explore this island before we’ll take the ferry to the North Island and will cycle up to Auckland. We want to try to avoid the main roads as much as possible to be able to enjoy peace, quietness and beautiful nature. On April 5 we will fly home from Auckland.
We will (try to) write about our adventures regularly and post it on this website.
Happy New Year! We wish everybody a happy, healthy, active, adventurous and prosperous 2015!
