Believe it or not, navigating through a city is a lot harder than doing 100km on a country road. We figured that out quickly trying to make it throught the end of Auckland's maze on our way to the Sir Peter Blake Trust office.

Four hours later, after the 32nd person asked for direction and six water bottles .. we made it! We were greeted by the ladies at the office who invited us out for a drink. We got talking about environmental project and the Trust's mission. Did you know that Thursday marked the 11th anniversary of Sir Peter Blake's death, when he was shot by pirates in the Amazon? Shelley and Dave Thomas explained it all when we were kindly invited to stay the night with them.

For the last couple of days we have been cycling flat out, trying to reach Hamilton before Monday morning. Because guess what! Monday morning we will be on New Zealand's Breakfast show which is watched nationally! So, keep tuned!

By the way, check out the video Johannes Strassner made of the expedition! Hope you like it as much as we do.
