2 weeks left- I'm a big ball of excitement and nerves!!

Can't believe there is only 2 weeks left till I fly out to NZ to start a crazy adventure with my partner in fun and frivolities ;) !! Will be giving Kat a ginormous hug when I see her!! 

Have got my bike hire sorted and am stocking up on some extra cycling gear at the moment.. Feeling both excited and nervous- have never done anything like this before! No doubting it is going to be a big challenge!! Telling people about our plan, they either look at me like I'm a total nutter or say 'wow..well..goodluck with that!' haha.. But you know what- impossible is only an opinion..and in my opinion, absolutely anything is possible :)

19 days to go...

17 days and I'll be taking Ted (my little Jack Russell) to Cornwall to stay with my friend Russ for his holidays, 19 days and I'll be heading to the airport!!! WOWEEE!

Now figured out how to get to the top of NZ to start the ride - getting the bus from Auckland to Paihai, sleeping there for the night then having a ride with Cape Reinga Adventures from Paihai to Cape Reinga on the morning of 30th, ready to begin the journey!!!

Big thanks to Wheelbase, Staveley for helping me out with my cycling kit, and of course, huge thanks to all those generous people who have donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
