Since then, I’ve been going at it full pelt, making plans for a short but awesome adventure around some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s North Island. Once again, I’m using the InterCity coaches but,…

A new direction

So, despite finishing the blog series only a few days ago, my big South Island adventure in Aotearoa New Zealand ended mid-January.
