To be continued

I'm sure this doesn't come as a total surprise, given the nature of my recent updates, but it's still a bit disappointing - I'm putting the rest of my tour on hold.

The weather lately has been awful, with more to come, and I've had a series of really bad leg cramps, though fortunately those seem to have mostly subsided now. I could still complete my planned South Island route if I left tomorrow, but it leaves me with very little wiggle room for unexpected trouble or further really bad weather - any further problems and I have to start cutting bits off my trip.

This is a to-be-continued, though - I fully intend to pick up my tour again when I get an opportunity; hopefully next summer.

If you've donated for a postcard and I haven't sent you one yet, let me know what you'd like me to do. I'll happily send you one from Christchurch, or if you'd prefer I can send you your money back from my own pocket.

On a more positive note, I've had a fantastic time doing the tour, all up. I've never done anything like this before, and it's been a great experience, and something totally different from anything I've done in the past. I'm hoping it leads to more (though probably shorter) tours like this in the future.

My apologies for letting people down by truncating the tour like this, and thank you for all your kind words and support.
