Day 49 - 58. Dec 23 - Jan 1. Christmas and New Year in Auckland.
Had a lovely chill time in Auckland with my extended family. Did the remaining Pakakura to Bombay section on a very hot day through rural roads and fast disappearing rural landscape being gobbled up by development. So far, I've done all sections to Taumarunui with 94% walked or biked. Let's see how that pans out going forward 😀. My extended break has pushed my expected finish time into mid-April but I don't mind. Plenty of time to figure out what I want to do after that.
