    Introducing Bobby (Jean) the Bongo

    January 16, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    It's been a hectic week and we're only just catching up! It's also been an exciting week and we would like to introduce the third member of our traveling party, Bobby Jean. She's a last minute stand in for our original van which sadly isn't with us any more. But Bobby is even more awesome - a pop-top Mazda Bongo, 20 years old, a replaced engine and now a whole load of bike specific custom storage! It took 3 days of work to kit her out but she's now purpose built and has been a wonder over the last few days travelling!

    Arrival in Auckland

    January 3, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    Winter flying in Europe never seems to be trouble free....

    We've arrived in Auckland a day later than anticipated but with very little trouble once we actually left Scotland! It's now the end of our second day here and we've just about recovered from travelling, two bikes have been built up and we're starting to settle in.

    Our base for the next couple of weeks is with my family in Howick in the suburbs of Auckland. The next few days will provide an opportunity to pick up some essentials, explore the area and stretch our legs out on the bikes. For now we our sampling some of New Zealand's famous wines, cuddling with dogs on the sofa and enjoying the warm weather!

    Regen, Outdoornichtkauf, Yoga ;)

    January 14, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Vormittags war richtig starker Regen angesagt, wie wir es seit Bali nicht mehr erlebt haben. Es wurde frisch, doch es tat so gut. Wasser/Regen hat so etwas Vitales an sich. Bei Regen fuhren wir zum Kathmandu, einem Outdoor Laden, den wir schon aus Australien kannten. Wir überlegten, Jacken bzw. Fleece-Kleidung, eventuell noch ein Zelt zu kaufen, doch war trotz super Sale -50% das Meiste immer noch sehr teuer. Danach gingen wir zum KMart - einem "real" im Low Budget Bereich - bei dem wir auch nichts gefunden haben, da zu billig 😂
    Es hat dann aufgehört zu regnen, ergo Entscheidung verschoben. Abends war Chrissi noch beim kostenlosen Yoga im Park mit unserer Gastgeberin und ich habe mit Lara zugesehen bzw. ein wenig den Park erkundet. Morgen verlassen wir Howick Richtung Norden.

    So we sadly come to the end

    April 1, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Our last night in NZ was spent in Howick visiting the lovely Caldwells. Who took us out for what must be one of the best Thai meals. Just down the road from them was a beach and plenty of parking.... So finished our trip how we like it.... By the sea.

    NZ we miss you, but not the rain or the apples. 😀
