The laundry pic is epic , says it all.

I have a couple of those stranded elastic ropes, very handy!

I'm soooo envious. Well done.
All we can do is go to the North Island or South Island.

I would absolutely love to ride in New Zealand. I have only once been there, just for a couple of day on a stopover, only saw a bit of the North Island.

Have you considered flying somewhere and renting a bike locally? I once flew to Crete for a week, rented a small bike and toured round the island that way. Was brilliant and not that expensive.

Nice pictures, looks like a fabulous trip! I can see why you'd go back again.

I can so recommend Spain, just go if you have a chance. It is absolutely brilliant, especially the back roads and smaller towns are spectacular.

Having gone there now twice in a row, I am up for somewhere new, perhaps Italy? I do want/need guaranteed sunny weather, riding in the rain for days on end (as I had to do on my way back through France) isn't really my idea of fun.

A good idea. I've thought about it but not yet had the opportunity to do it.
Once my daughter has left home perhaps....
