Last night we stayed at Kahoe Farmstay Backpacker and it was great. Stephano cooked us a mean pizza and there was a great group of people from all over the world staying there. It was another beautiful day when we started and I was feeling good in the legs, but my mind was a bit tired. I’m so excited about getting to the end that it is taking ages, I think that you get this on any trip you do. It was a day of hills as well which I don’t mind at all now, but today I wasn’t ready for this many, SO I pulled out the … Continue reading
We stayed here at the Norfolk Motel which is in Awanui. I came here back in July and met Kim, she was great and put me up then and then again last night.

I didn’t sleep super well as I was excited getting all the photos from the World Stroke Day run, who … Continue reading
We stayed at Te Kao Lodge with Irene for the last 2 days, great little place to chill out right at the top of NZ. Thank you so much for helping us out.

We were up early and driving to Cape Rienga, we wanted to get a bit of filming done before we set off. As we got out of the Guardian (van ) 2 young pretty Dutch ladies came up and asked us to help change their flat tyre. So I had to get the guns out and help out -almost a bit embarrassing as the nuts on the wheel were damn tight and I struggled for a start but got them in the end. Then Claire and Eveline decided they would come and run with me, I was stoked. Rick and I set off down to the Light house and … Continue reading
