Below is a link to an interview (it was live to air!!) with Bryan Crump at Radio New Zealand on April 22 2014 about my Eastern Europe cycling adventure.
Searching through my files at home, I located several videos from various travels that I thought I had lost! So, being delighted at having found the ‘missing’ videos, I have added three videos to the Eastern Europe tours page and four videos to the South Island NZ tours page.
The videos were taken on a small hand-held pocket camera, so the quality is not great, but hey, you get a sense of what it was exactly like at that point in time for me. Oh, the commentary that you hear is me!
I have added the story of my ride, and associated photos, through the Molesworth Station – from Blenheim to Hanmer Springs.
A spectacular and remote valley. Really really worth doing if you like the back-country, and have good equipment.
Enjoy the read!
I have finally completed the uploading of the most interesting photos from the Eastern Europe 2013 trip. Thank goodness that is completed – what a task!
Also have uploaded those from a ride through the Molesworth Station (from Blenheim to Hanmer Springs). A unique and spectacular valley, the photos certainly capture the beauty of this area.
At last, I have added many more photos from the 2013 Eastern Europe trip. I have not loaded all the photos that I have as it would take forever, well almost forever! All I have to do now is update the captions for the photos that I have loaded. Hmmm, more work…
I have also added my email blog from the 2012 South Island back-country trip. It is interesting for me to again read my thoughts of that time.
Tales of touring by bicycle ………..
… a lifestyle?
… a passion?
… an adventure?
… yes, all of the above and lots of fun (and at times HARD work!)
