Finished and great to be back in NZ

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006

After 14,289km we are finally back in NZ. This 11 month cycle adventure has changed the way I perceive the world. As they say in Spanish la mas tiene la mas quiere y las minis tiene la mas quiere dar. The more you have the more you want and the less you have the more you want to give. That is certainly been my experience in South America. Camping on the side of the road and living as cheaply as we could we certainly saw our share of poverty and have never experienced such hospitality.

Anyone who wants advice on this trip or who wants to take on a similar adventure DO IT!!! If you would like any advice from us please email us from the link under “contact us”.

We have traveled through Asia on a bike as well as Europe and met people from every country I can think of except for the smaller African countries. But one thing is certain and without any disrespect for any other country on this amazing planet of ours, I have never been so glad or felt so lucky to be a New Zealander.
