Finally, after sifting through much GoPro footage, losing a large chunk of content, finding a back up of the content and then a few spare minutes to turn it into something, behold(!), a video of me spinning in circles all throughout New Zealand (ft. odd facial expressi...

Okay, let me fill in the final days of the walk…

 

From Pahia I had an easy day walk through Waitangi Forest to reach Kerikeri. Despite having a rest day very recently, I found myself feeling very drained of energy and wondering how I’d get through the final section of f...

Hello! As most people already know I have finished the walk. The last days of walking were incredible, but I did not have access to a computer and I wanted to focus on everything around me rather than worrying about technology. So here’s what happened from Whangarei to...

After the weekend of Pirongia, I returned to Auckland on Monday morning thanks to Matthew. I spent the day organising extra gear to be stored with Jenny Hirst, getting part of my phone fixed and printing the updated trail maps for the rest of the walk. In the afternoon...

Blog time!

 

It's been great getting back on the trail, and despite my reservations regarding the trail leading up to Auckland, there have been some cool moments along the way.

Hola! The long awaited return to the trail is about to happen. Actually, it just has!

Well, I'm stuck, again. Most frustratingly, just as I was getting a decent rhythm again after the big hiatus from Te Araroa.

From National Park, I had to skip the Tongariro Alpine Crossing due to bad weather that didn't look as though it was clearing anytime soon. Ins...

Okay, I'll keep this post brief-er. It's been a pretty awesome three weeks of basically just being on 'holiday'. I spent some time in Taupo after coming out of the last section and then moved on to Rotorua; stopping at a geothermal hot pool called Kerosene Creek for a...

Unlike the Ruahines, I got the feeling of a much more settled set of Ranges in the Kaweka Forest Park. I had a bit of variety with the weather but I never felt as though I was going to die if I didn't always keep part of my attention on how the skies behaved.

I had so...

The Ruahine (pronounced 'Ruaheenee') Ranges...the element of this entire walk that I had been anxious about since preparation. I knew that if there would be one section of my journey that would test me in almost every way, it would be this. I struggled throughout these...
