Today I finished running the North Island here in New Zealand. I ran the last 5km with Carl my host here who guided me around the motorway to the ferry terminal. I finished just 1km short of 26,000km for the run.
New Zealand is an amazing place, I experienced astonishing hospitality and help all the way from my arrival in Auckland to my Saturday departure from Wellington to Picton. Right to the very end I have been helped with even Interislander providing me with a complimentary passage, breakfast and free wi-fi. I look forward to my cruise across the Cook Strait, travelling in luxury I will take the 8.30am ferry.
Many thanks Liz (from Rosscommon) in head office and for my great friend Perry for making contact with Interislander
