Arrived in Christchurch on Wednesday mid-day, after a delayed departure from LAX that meant a rebooking on the next connecting flight from Auckland.
As photography has usually been part of my adventure planning (if not always part of the execution), I’ve been thinking about what to take with me. It needs to be compact, relatively light and convenient for motorcycle travel as well as some day hikes.
But friends have been telling me for years that New Zealand is the best place on the planet for a motorcycle tour. Lots of lightly-trafficked scenic roads. No real freeways on the South Island where I’ll be.
