I met Shelby a month ago when I was Cycle touring in the South Island. She’s from Washington State in the US. She left the US three months ago and flew to Australia, she cycle toured around Tasmania and then the South Island of NZ. This is only her second tour!!!

I met Shelby at the same time as I met two other cycle tourists – Allie and Roger – they’re from the UK.  We all spent Christmas Day together. That day Shelby found out that waterproof pants and waterproof trousers are not the same thing in English-English when she asked me about my waterproofs 😊.

I got to catch up with Shelby before she flew back home. She’s managed to get a remote writing job – imagine all of the adventures that she can do as she doesn’t have to go to the office everyday.
