Auckland to home (the Netherlands)

Hi all,

im planning to make the journey of my life from around june 2014 - august 2015. I want to fly to Auckland and than find my way back home. It's a trip of about 28.000 km and I'm looking forward to the adventure.
I'll be cycling for Unicef, for who I am trying to raise 15.000 euro's..please check out this link, it's Dutch but you can check out my route there from the picture, all countries are mentioned in the blog. 'Hero4zero' is an action to try to minimize deaths of children of 0 - 5 years, now there are 18.000 deaths on a daily base worldwide because of preventable causes (like bad drinking water)..let's aim for 0 deaths!

I've got several questions;
1. Is there someone around there that would like to go on this trip with me (Im male, 21 yo)? Or at one that feels like doing something like this, please contact me and maybe I wont have to go all by myself:-)
2. I need to purchase almost everything in Auckland since I want to fly with only a backpack to New Zealand, are there companies around that can help me with items I might need, tent/ bike/ spare parts/ etc.
3. Coachsurfing seems to be hot around New Zealand/ Australia? Is that the medium to find a good place to sleep and meeting local people?
4. If anyone would like to sponsor me on this trip (with products or money for Unicef) please let me know, I will be happy to translate the steps you have to take to make a donation to Unicef.

I am very sorry for my grammar, let's hope my English improves while cycling:-)

kind regards,
Sjoerd Nijkamp
