Scott Bischke and Katie Gibson have done what many of us dream. They quit their jobs and traded their possessions for a year of travel and simplicity. During the course of their journey, Scott and Katie biked more than 8,000 kilometers and experienced much of New Zealand's culture and beauty. Their freewheeling travels took them frombiking, hiking and canoeing to fly fishing for monster trout and picking kiwifruit as transient labors. Theirs was a journey of discovery both as individuals and as a couple. They shared the joys of exploration and new friendships, as well as the challenges of biking moutainous terrian and living in a two-person tent.Two Wheels Around New Zealand is a light-hearted adventure atory; but above all, it is a celebration of people, landscape, and lifestyle of New Zealand.
