2013 was going to be a promising year. With flights booked to New Zealand for our year away.
Luckily for me the only Kiwi I knew at the time was Dave Norris, a local trail builder and all round "Good **** " as they say in New Zealand. Within in a couple of hours of landing Dave took me up the local hills behind his house in Waterloo.
With just a week to go until Jen started work in Nelson we went on a wee tiki tour to Martinborough. Some easy pedaling, washing down with fine wine before we got the ferry to the South Island..
