10 things I learned when I solo cycled around New Zealand

•••
When I graduated from university in August 2015, I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a career. What I did know was that I needed to escape. That I needed to travel far, far away from the chaotic streets of London, where I had been living for the past four years, to somewhere wild and exotic, mountainous and rugged.
