Last leg of my journey in NZ

I took a bus from Christchurch for Picton and then by a ferry I moved toward Wellington where I was going to stay for 2 days to renew my passport and relax. Last time that I was in Wellington I met Mr.Yssaiee and I staid with them for 2 days. The first night when I arrived there was a party in their house and some more Iranian people were there and we had a very nice time there.

When I was caught in Haast road under a shelter in Pleasant flat and just on the last hour before leaving there I met a Kiwi couple and we had a coffee together. They invited me to stay with them when I am passing through their town but I was not going to cycle due to I already have cycled that road and just I wanted to hitchhike to Tokorua where I could cycle to Rotorua to visit hot pools.

The game...Part 3 : Finding the secret

The game was not over. I was in Christchurch staying with a friend but there was no money in my pocket even a penny. I had began the game and I had to finish. I had to trust but it was not easy. It is true that I began my journey on trust of GOD and always he has been helping me but still it is hard to believe and trust more and more.

I knew that he will help me but it was hard to accept it when I had no money.

The game...Part2 : The most important and difficult part of my journey

The game...Part2 : The most important and difficult part of my journey

I left Dunedin not very early. I had no power to leave. My legs were so weak and they were not following my mind however my mind was not very strong in that situation.

From the beginning of this journey always just I trusted GOD and he always supported me and helped me in any case I needed. There is too many miracles and everything just happen when they have to. But now it looks that in this time nothing is going to happen and I have to struggle with this challenge, I have to prove that I am a real lover for my job. Again I went to the ATM to check my card…sorry your card can not be recognized was the answer I got from the machine. Again I touched my wallet, I pulled it out and had another look at it. There was just a couple of coins. I counted them all..5.2$ was the number I reached. Just I knew that I have put one bill of 10 in my book to put it in bills collection which I am making for my lovely nephew. I was not going to use that. I can not explain how it is hard putting step on the road when you have no money in a foreign country. There was no way and just I had to go.

Queenstown to Milfordsound...A piece of paradise

I didn’t staid in Queenstown very long and just one night was enough for me.

Queenstown is a small city which many activity for adventurous like bongy jumping, rafting, skiing, paraglide, sky diving and…. And for me as person who was not going to do any of then there was no reason to stay there. So just I went to the holiday park and camped there for a night to take shower and do some work on my PC. A ay after just after having some short walk around the street and then just left there for Melfordsound which was 290km from there. I was planning to make it by 3 days and I had to do 110km for the 2 first days and leave 70 km for the last due to the last day was the most scenic day and I knew I will have some hills waiting there to climb.

Haast to Wanaka

In Haast I had dinner with Marta and we talked about our journey and we planned to have breakfast together and then we were going to cycle in different direction.

She was camping outside and in the morning she left her sleeping bag near the fire to dry( what everyday I have to as well) and there was time for the very unfriendly owner to come and talk very badly about lying sleeping bag on the sofa. I didn’t like his manner and I preferred to leave there so just I too my bags which were already packed and loaded my bicycle and began to hit the road when the rain was flowing. it was a very cold day and I had a very strong cold wind ahead and rain as well.

Hokitika and meeting Bruce and his lovely family

After having a hard and rainy day I arrived to the house of Bruce about sunset. I ringed the bell and after a short time door was opened and we were introducing ourselves, shaking a hand..Mohammad, Bruce, Angela, Tessa ..nice to meet you, nice to meet you too. But the only thing in my mind was shower and warmth." How was the day? Angela asked me and the only answer was very hard and rainy, I need a shower. Can I do it now? And before I bring my stuff inside the room I jumped to the bathroom to stay under hot water and enjoy of having a roof against the rain.

I came out fresh and happy and then was the time to chat and having dinner with one another lovely family.
