The Map of our Trip

Because I like maps, I want to share our map with you.  And I want to try something different.  So here is the map of our trip.  Four months in New Zealand in one image.  It’s a real live Google map, so you can zoom in or switch to satellite view or whatever you want.  It’s also really our tracks, so it shows the doubling back, wandering around, etc.  I’ve associated each blog post with the track in that area, so if you click on the track at any point, you will get a link to the blog post for that area.  It’s not a perfect system–there are a few blog posts that don’t have much of a track associated with them — but I thought it would be interesting to try it out.


Thanks for reading.  It was a wonderful trip.  We commented regularly that we’ve never spent so much time in a place with such consistently twisty roads.  New Zealand is a wonderful place to ride motorcycles.  Or even to visit without motorcycles, I suppose.  You’ve hopefully gotten a sense from Tom’s photos how stunningly beautiful the scenery is.  Traveling there is easy and fun , and I wasn’t surprised to meet other visitors that return over and over again.  We’ve been asked a lot, “Would you go back?”  Well, certainly, we would.  But there’s a lot of other places we want to explore, too, so we’ll see.

At the end of another wonderful trip!
