hi everyone :)
i will cycle in a few days from auckland down south to wellington and then explore the south island for some time before trying to find a job somewhere down south.
anybody is on a bike as well and would fancy to do some cycling/traveling together ? its just more fun then alone..;)
would be nice to find some travel companions :) !

save travels and loads of fun everybody :) :)
