I am currently in sunny Nelson at the top of the south island if you want to get your bearings! It is probably my favourite place in the world. I feel like I am on a retreat! I have been staying with our awesome family friends the Lush's. Whilst I have been here they have effectively provided a bed and breakfast service for other cycling friends of mine to come and go, train and eat them out of house and home! They are the best hosts I feel so at home it is going to be hard leaving come Thursday, but there is a lot to look forward to ahead.
Item number 2... I leave for sunny San Fran in 3 days for some American dream livin'! In case you missed it I have signed with Team TIBCO a UCI based team from the Silicon Valley (aka google and facebook land). I can't wait for team camp in another grim part of the world- Santa Barbara, California! I leave at 7.30pm on the 29th and arrive at 10.30am on the 29th, pretty much a harry potter time turner kind of day!

It's getting late so I'll leave you with some pics instead of boring you with any more ramble. Ciao for now xox
