Bye Australia!

Last day in Cairns Today. It have been a day of packing and organising for our next journey. But also one last trail run around Blue arrow and a massage.

Tomorrow we are flying to Auckland in New Zealand.

We had to screw the bikes apart today, we are taking them on the plane tomorrow and it will cost us $25 per KG !! Our bikes are pretty heavy because it is a touring bikes.

So we decided to take of as much as we could. The tires, saddle, pedals, front and back rack was pretty much all the part we could take off and put that in our luggage. The handle bar we had to open up and just turn it to the side to be able to fit the bike in the box.

We don't have a suitcase, because we rode our bikes to Cairns from Sydney. So we will put our panniers bags ( the bags we had on the bikes) in a large bag, ( similar to an Ikea bag but bigger and with zip) we have also put all the parts to the bikes in that bag to make the package with the bikes lighter. Hopefully they will let us do that at the airport. They told us that sometimes they are fine with it and sometimes not. Oh well we will found out tomorrow. It will be a lot cheaper if we can do it that way.
