So farewell New Zealand. We have loved you and we want to come back before very long! What have my most memorable bits been? The cycling highlights were cycling from Raetihi and along the Wanganui River Road, so quiet, so beautiful and lots of downhill; across Tongoriro National Park with views of snow capped mountain and active volcanoes; cycling across the South Island from Blenheim to Reefton through often lovely and remote areas with mainly gentle inclines. Best places we visited were Akaroa, in the caldera of an ancient volcano in fantastic weather; Ohinimutu, the origin of Rotorua and seeing geothermal activity in people’s gardens; Cape Reinga and 90 mile beach in the far north; and St. Arnaud, the Alpine village in the Nelson lakes. Other highlights were seeing the ancient, giant and majestic Kauri trees in Waipoua forest and visiting the wonderful Kauri museum, and taking the TranzAlpine railway from Greymouth to Christchurch. Visiting different churches each week and sharing in the worship, especially the ones with a large Maori influence. The friendly helpful people of New Zealand have been brilliant, and travelling has been so easy, and the campsites are great. Even the weather has been pretty good. A final memorable, though less positive experience was the 5.7 earthquake we felt in Christchurch. All in all a wonderful 3 months!
