Nelson, New Zealand
76 km (47.2 mi)

Today I made the break from Nelson. Said goodbye to a lot of people from the hostel. Maybe when I come back here someday I'll be good enough to beat Dave in Chess!

I was thinking it was going to be a harder ride to day but in fact it wasn't that bad. There were a couple large hills to climb over (350m and 250m high). The wind was at my back so I really didn't mind.

Rolled into Havelock around 4pm. Figured I could probably make Picton a little after dark...but decided I was in no rush; the ferry doesn't leave till 1:30pm anyway.

It is looking like Wellington is going to be the end of the trip. I could make Auckland in 7 days or so...but it would be a long ride and I don't want to be rushing the last couple of weeks and end up with 1,000 things to do before I leave, like when I left Steve and Katrina's in Melbourne. I want to have a normal flight for a change. So tomorrow might be the last day then, even though it is only 35km.
