NZ Tour 2005
Rode to Geraldine (36km) then it started raining. Forecast is clearing this evening, so I went to the library. New Zealand towns have astonishingly good libraries compared to Australia. So that kept me entertained for the rainy day. Met some interesting Germans (Tania and Marcus) and biked out of town with them, but they had funny ideas about camping so I left them to it. Camped in a(nother) pine plantation 10km or so out of town. major achievement for the day was buying a spoon (I lost my one at Simon's place).
|The couple with kids that I saw on the West Coast but only got a photo of their vanishing backs. Touring with kids is hard, but apparently these two enjoy it. Short distances and regular cabin accommodation is the key, apparently.|
|Geraldine library and council offices. Very cool. Library better than most Sydney ones.|
