the day before we leave
Well, we are one day away from leaving on our adventure in New Zealand. Unlike previous trips we are already packed. This is so atypical of us. But when you are planning on touring on bikes what you pack is really minimal except of course the bike.
But the stress and panic comes from other things. There is always the nightmare of having no clothes (that is of course except the clothes on our back). That is always possible with the airlines. There is the concern about the long, long flight? With only the first three nights of accomodation organized will we find places to stay? There is always the fear of spending all of our time figuring out where we are going and where we will stay? There is also the concern about whether we will be comfortable riding on the roads in New Zealand? But the number one concern is whether Rick and I can survive together 24/7 for a month.
