Distance covered - 7350km's
Days on the road - 19
Mishaps - one flat rear tyre
Roads covered - tar seal, gravel, mud, dirt
Central Otago roads
Lewis pass with the snow
Te urewera ranges
Danseys pass for the views
Queenstown to Glenorchy - stunning scenery
Takaka and Motueka.
The serenity of being on the road with just me and Bertha and no one and nothing else.
Good accommodation - basically I found it very easy to find accommodation anywhere I went - in fact I was quite surprised with how quiet it was. I just randomly picked places and I would suggest you do the same. I also suggest that you do not plan ahead because the beauty of being on the road is that you can change your mind and go different easy or end up in different locations. This is the beauty of a road trip.
I put below a couple of my favourite pics.

Again, thanks for following my adventures. Do check back often as over the next couple of weeks the next leg of my journey continues.
I am being vague because the plans change every day. All I know at the moment is that next Monday I jump on a plane and spend 7 days on the gold coast in Australia then 10 days in Bali - this will be the "r and r" part of my journey as I catch up with old friends and hopefully sit round pools drinking brightly coloured cocktails :)
Until next time, take care.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to follow my blog. Cheers, Nick.
