    Hi guys

    have an amazing trip. I am envious. Just read about you in the Mainland Press, fantastic. I have cycled right around and up through the center of Australia, so if you have any questions feel free to e mail me I would love to be able to pass on anything that might be of use to you. Have a great trip and the best of luck. Regards Ian

  13. Anthony Rock says:

    Hello! Great work guys, you really are doing well. And although it must be very tough at times, from what we’re reading and the photos we’re looking at, it all seems well worth it! Well done.

    Got to say, we’re both very jealous of you. New Zealand is an amazing place! Maybe you’ll get to spot Mount Cook in the distance when you head back up the South Island towards Queenstown!? Fingers crossed.

    Stay safe, and all the best for the coming days.

  14. Cherie and Col. says:

    5p,s and 20p,s minimum tender!
    Just to say we are thinking of you is a understatement, you are never far from our love, thoughts and prayers, usually as I guiltily snuggle down, and say ‘Hope They are warm Col’…….. Love reading of your adventures, I usually cry, love you both Cherie and Col xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  15. Helen Djenih says:

    Hi guys,

  16. Michael & Christine says:

    Thanks for including us on your blog. It is bringing back so many happy memories of our trip to New Zealand in the spring of 2005. We spent four weeks in the South Island and just two weeks in the North. Neither period was long enough. (4000 miles but by car!!)We loved, in particular, the picture of the Moreaki Boulders as for reasons I can’t explain we became mesmerised by them and were reluctant to move on but the purchase of a crayfish in the next lay-by helped. Keep cycling & best wishes M & C.

  17. Cherie and Colin says:

    Remember we’re all with you!
    Love The Pryceys xxx

  18. becca pryce says:

    Very impressed guys looks incredible what youve achieved, love reading the updates, Kat i dont know how u coped with the dark woods and the mice, amazing!!!
    Take care XXxx

  19. June & Mick says:

    We met you on the Frankton Track Queenstown. Somehow managed to loose your card but did a google search and found you. We may see you in Dargaville if you find the time to pedal that far. It would be good if you could pedal from the tip of the south Island to the tip of the north island. We would be happy to host you if you do get that far. Nice to chat with you both.
    Life is a great adventure and you are living it to the max… All the best June & Mick

  40. Rosie Hopkins says:

    I found your story in the Summer edition of Practical Action’s Small World and think you are wonderful – what an adventure – and as I learned to say when I worked in a local Scottish Young Offenders’ Institute ‘pure dead brullyant’. A childhood friend from my early days in South Africa nearly 70 years ago died recently and she and her husband were great tandem riders. Together they rode the equivalent of 3x round the globe! I will be sponsoring you on Practical Action in her memory and wish you both well on your wondrous journey.

  41. granny and grandad says:

    We are following you journey with great intrest. The photo’s and scenery are a joy. You both look so well, hope your knee is feeling better Katherine. We think Steve could take a few lessons from the Kangaroos in jumping. The lovely people you have met, their kindness is overwhelming. Our pryers and thoughts are with you every step (or pedel) of the way. Hope Hooch will be a better friend when the new wheel arrives. We are both very well and enjoying some summer sun at last. God be with you.
    All our love,
    Granny and Grandad.

  67. Liz Frost says:

    It’s a friday afternoon and I should really be working, but Michaela Ashmore circulated your latest blog, and before I knew it I was working my way back through your travels, entranced with the stories of people you’ve met, the places you’ve stayed and your insightful comments. I work for Practical Action and have been fortunate to visit our work (and recognise some of those ‘hotels’ you’ve stayed in – the strange smells and stains) – just wanted to say how much I admire what you’re doing. Having visited quite a few of Practical Action’s projects and reading every day of the impact it has, I know the money you’re raising will be making a difference – I met an elderly lady in Bangladesh we had helped by building her a safe, secure home above the flood levels. In her 70s, it was the first time she had ever had an address, and the first home she could be sure would always be there – she’s just one of thousands whose life has been changed by people like you.

    Good luck with the rest of the trip and looking forward to reading the next blog!
