September....and a hectic time spend with family affairs in Europe.
No travel as such, but still enough time for the odd micro-break along the way.

Stralsund, Baltics, Germany....Old Town



















More pics and a bit of a yarn, maps etc.

Default 2017_NZ-Northland....Boulders, Beaches and Bloody Good Times :-)

Making the most of Melbourne Cup Day, it was off to NZ's fantastic North for some gravel and beach adventuring.
Mid-November...and what a hoot is was!


With a bursting wish-list in hand...






we were led astray by some locals...





...stared into some stumping sunsets




...and laughed-till-it-hurt into a night of candle-lights in the hills above the roaring EastCoast surf.






found ENDLESS ever-swinging ridges....






and bursts of colour in unlikely places





Coastal delights...









Some impromptu Macarena...





...and more Macarena, this time on the bikes :-)





Whopping sandhills as the sun went down.






From NZ-history...





...to a stunning little church at "the edge of the world"...






....to riding some strange, wet "roads"




Going for a "dip at the tip" of NZ




Stunning landscapes...






...stunning roads








and stunning vistas






Some heavy-hearted Goodbyes as another fabulous NZ-Adventure comes to an end :-(










Sign into an eye-watering 500+ pic blockbuster...






...RIGHT HERE!!
