      ... but relieved that I had taken out "Peace of Mind" additional insurance to avoid any excess charges in the event of an accident. The hotel team welcomed us back which was nice and we went to our room and sorted out our dirty washing and luggage. After this enjoyed supper at "Lava" and we're the restaurant's last guests before retiring for bed and setting our alarm clock for 4 am so that we could get to Aukland airport and flying to Queenstown, South ...

      ... we've been venturing out to explore our new stomping grounds. It has not taken long to reconfirm that when cycling, it will always be more uphill and windier on the way back; I have also found this to be the case with trail running - with more stairs on the way back than the way out.

As a thank-you for our gluttony, Smiths City gave us a frozen chicken ...

      Next blog: my new job/cult membership :)
