I just fooked up and spent 5 hours on this techie sjite gps bullsh*t…drama!
Here it is tho: Google Earth Route
(Too big too be shown in Google Maps, sry…)
Oh yeah, did you see that I topped my record…did 91.587 km p/h. WOOHOO!!

Update: I wasn’t looking right. Forgot to filter out the car rides. So I only did 82 km p/h 😐

I also put up some picz again. Checkum out here, or see them on Google maps here.

Btw Vinnie, nice to hear from you dude! Lets get together when I get back!

Reach out!

Okay okay, my bad! Tech junkie that I am was absorbed in the laying out of our Google route. That’s done now, so go ahead and check the link in the previous post if you haven’t done so.

Before I get on with my travel storiez, let me give you our NZ phone numbers:

Maurice: +64 211 689 620
Corine: +64 211 691 398

You can use teledump(.nl) as a carrier service and call us for 0,25 euro cents. First call 0900 1518, and then enter our phone number (without the ‘+’) when the voice asks for it.

Allrighty then, lets get on with it! But first let me tell yo that Corine has decided to put up a Dutch blog at I will lean on her and translate what she’s been saying in the next post. With my own extras ofcourse 😉

But I am hungry now and must go looking for lunch somewhere. What a pain :p


Haaaaaaai thir! Finally found a place with true broadband internet….pfff. And it even lets me do all the things I want 🙂 I got kicked out of the last joint, for complaining about my $2 being spent on rebooting and wiping the comp. Anyway, I got many picz uploading right now, so feel free to check them out here. Also, check out our route so far in Google Maps here (or click here to view in Google Earth). I’ve been going as fast as 69.304 km p/h according to my geologger 🙂 That was one scary downhill I remember.

In the mean time, let me tell you what we went thru in a nutshell.

First of all, some NZ Airways guy or girl forgot to take Corine’s bike bag off the plane. Stuff like that happens all the time to us, so no biggie there. We just cycled thru Auckland a bit to get some gear and fix up our bikes. The flight from Shanghai to NZ was just too rough on the bike(boxes). The baggage ppl throwing them in the plane secretly tried to fix up Co’s rear light, without noticing that parts were missing :p. I did, however :]

Aaargh! been in the shop for 3 hours, and they’re kicking me out 🙁
