Well I havent Checked in for a while, but I thought I'd post a quick update on my life. Patricia and I are still travelling together, we did end up getting free accomodation at Cacktus Jacks in return for 2 hours of work a day (it always ended up just being about 1) so that was sweet. That was 4 days ago. Now we are taking a small vacation on vacation to the Coromandel, which some of you miay remember as being the first place I went to after leaving the big city and the first place I rode my bike.

Goodbye to the vines, and my final revenge!

So what have I been up to? Patricia and I finished 3 weeks of worek in the vineyards, while staying in Leeways again. It was a little dull. We didnt do much but work, but Dylan and some of the other germans from last time were still there so I had some friends to reminice with. Dylan, Patricia Christopher the Chilean and I went to the beach on our last work day. Read more...

Today I went jet boating and conoeing on the dart river for free cause my rafting buddy/teacher fletch works for the company that runs it. Just goes to show you in pays to have friends in the tourism industry! It was so amazing! The jet boats can go up to 70mph in water only 3 inches deep! And man, it was FAST! We went up the dart river, which passes through a place caleed the Paradise Trust where a lot of the LOTR movies were filmed. Read more...

Quest complete! Queenstown baby!

🔖
5 months and 1700km (1056 miles) later, I've finally arrived in Queenstown! How can I describe my excitement... Arms flailing, lots of yelling, laughing, crying, jumping up and down, leg cramps, cant believe it, am I really here? In the last 3 days I rode over 250km because I was so anxious to finally get here. And now that I've arrived, I cant say I've ever felt better. This place is gorgeous, full of tourists and a mind blowing amount of activities to empty your wallet. Read more...

So close yet so far!

🔖
So for the second time in a week, I am holed up in a backpacker because of bad weather! Now I am at lake Tekapo, if I could ride every day from tomorrow on, I would arrive in Queenstown in exactly a week. Somehow I don't think thats going to happen! Of course I cant complain, life is still great and this lake is amazing! Its got a turquoise blue color that Ive never seen before. Read more...

Going to Queenstown with an aching heart.

🔖
Well its that time again. As some of you have probably noticed, I haven't been as in touch as much as I would like. About three and a half weeks ago I rode into a town called Waipara. It is your standard small town, New Zealand style. Just a few houses bunched around an intersection, and a pub. It was raining out and I was pretty hungry, so I decided to pull over and grab a burger. Read more...

Letter to my mum

🔖
Hey mum! You guessed right, my cell battery ran out right in the middle of a conversation with Olivia! I was so pissed, I threw the phone at a grape vine! Anyways, Olivia sounded really stoked about the the weekend so it brightened me up and made the time pass quickly afterwards. Hung out the whole time with Biezad huh.? Tsk Tsk. It was cool to hear he is well too. Read more...

12 hour madness

Well now that I have control of my fingers enough to type again I figure I'd tell you about this weekend, and the Blues Brews and BBQ festival. This is kiwi drinking culture at its best! I will spare you the details, although I could tell you more if you want to know, but Im sure nobody wants to know. Although I will tell you I have a bloody hand, a severly bruised hip and 2 girls that now look at me funny whenever I see them. Read more...
