New Zealand: Marriage starts with long trek - Full Story

By RACHAEL MURPHY - Taranaki | Friday, 29 February 2008

Two "crazy" Auckland adventurers have had a very unconventional start to married life.

Two months after Genevieve (23) and Kerrin Revell (28) tied the knot, the pair quit their jobs and set out on a year-long horse trek to travel 5300km along New Zealand coasts to raise money for charity.

After 10 months travelling clockwise around New Zealand, the pair have trekked into Hawera and are set to ride the Taranaki coast for the next six days before reaching New Plymouth.

They have raised more than $22,000 for CanTeen and intend to finish at their starting point, Cape Reinga, exactly a year after they set off on May 3.
