            Four Kiwis on an epic journey to discover the world and themselves. 'When you're hurting and coughing on a steep incline, it's hard to see or even think of the top, but you just gotta push a pedal at a time and keep pushing.' At Auckland Airport, three young Kiwis began an audaci...ous - some would say crazy - journey, huddled together and wiping tears from their eyes. Fourteen months later, they had cycled 23,000 kilometres, from Bali to Buckingham Palace, across more than 20 countries and adventured through some of the most exotic parts of the world. They battled extreme heat, sub-zero temperatures, culture shock and loneliness as they pushed their bodies to their limits. They overcame injury, illness, heartbreak, and, above all, their own fears and self-doubt. It was the time of their lives. Packed with stunning photography by Sean Wakely, The Big Bike Trip is an inspirational account of self-discovery, friendship and turning your dreams into reality.

            You can't help but wonder about the stories behind the unusual buildings you see around New Zealand - from cute colonial cottages to abandoned industrial buildings or ghost towns. Nicola McCloy went looking to find out ... who lived there? From basic stone cottages in barren-look...ing countryside to pretty coastal villas, romantic churches and small-town taverns, New Zealand is full of buildings whose back stories have been lost over the generations. Jane King's photographs and Nicola McCloy's words weave the facts back together to present gripping stories of these places and their ups and downs over time. The strength of women, often left to fend for their families with little help or support, and the enterprise of early New Zealanders feature in this fascinating book, which you can dip into as you travel the country or read cover to cover from the comfort of your armchair. Find out about places as diverse as the old School of Mines in Thames, Rush Munroe's Ice Cream Garden in Hastings; Couldrey House at Wenderholm, near Auckland; the National Tobacco Company in Napier; Mt Cook Police Barracks in Wellington; Langlois-Eteveneaux House in Akaroa; Donovan's General Store in Okarito; and the Empire Tavern in Dunedin. With beautiful photographs by Jane King, supplemented with historic shots to show how little or how much some of these places have changed.
