Happy new year everyone! May 2015 be kind and awesome to all of us! 🙂

Last year was incredibly overwhelming, the good moments were so meaningful but the bad ones were just as intense. I feel stronger than ever, having survived so many challenges in 2014, and very proud of everything I’ve achieved. It wasn’t easy, but all the more rewarding.

And this road trip was exactly that: an amazing reward. After five years living in New Zealand Ivan and I were finally able to enjoy a long holiday and visit the lighthouse in Cape Reinga, on the top of the North Island. Looking back at all the crappy jobs we had, the long hours and low wages, and where we stand now, knowing that our lives improved so much, fills me with gratitude.

Here are just a few of my road trip stats:

– 2,815 km traveled

– 11 cities visited

– 10 days on the road

– 1,422 photos taken

– 4 holiday parks, 2 DOC camping grounds and 1 motel

– 1 very reliable Ducati 600SS

My head is full of post ideas and I’m so excited to share it all with you!

And you? How did you spend the final days of 2014? Any plans for this year?
