Isabelle cycling in New Zealand

Isa escaped work for two weeks and took her bike for a journey across New Zealand to Gisborne, where she used to live.

It took her 7 days to cycle the 600km from Auckland. She loved it because she could eat fresh fruit, go to hot springs (her dream) and breathe good air. However as a perfect experience it suffered because I was hard at work in HK and this prevented her from really having a great time. Everywhere she went people were really helpful - letting her stay in their house and feeding her as well. I was seriously jealous but at least she'll have sorted out some of the problems for our long ride next year.

When she arrived in Gisborne she stayed with Briar, Carl, Ari and India.
