Help two kiwis cyclists achieve their cycling dreams. We need help paying for our next visa.

Main image

It has been 9 months now since we've hopped on our bikes and we are very proud of what has been achieved. By sharing our journey through various blogging platforms we have reached almost 600+ followers.

Our main goal of the trip was to cycle to Europe, find work and start a new chapter of our lives there. Both of us have saved up money for this big dream for four years. However, recently we had a major setback.

Two factors have contributed to us asking for help, financially.

* Our travel money ($1000 US) for Iran and Turkey was stolen,

* Our Iran visa expires on the 27th of January and we cannot continue to Turkey during the winter months.

It would be very challenging to head north during January or February. Our only choice is to exit south of Iran, stay in Dubai (visa free for NZ) for a while and return back to Iran in March.

We like to fundraise for the cost of the second Iran visa which is €120 per person. That's the price for our New Zealand passports, by far our most expensive 😔. After Iran, every other countries we visit will be visa-free.
