The places you’ll go are certainly all rather magical. But for me, it’s also about the people you meet along the way.
I am making a weird and wonderful journey. An anti-single-use-plastic bamboo bike mission. It’s not your everyday sort of bike ride.
Although I spend time with lots of kids, I spend most of the time alone, huffing and puffing my way up huge hills with a bright red face!

Enjoy a couple of minutes of saltwatery goodness!
Arohanui – it is Maori for much love / deep affection, but goes deeper than just those words. It’s right inside your soul. I can’t think of a better way to describe the start of my plastic kaupapa (principles calling me to action) trip around New Zealand. Continue reading The Force is strong here
