The Long Pathway
A 3000 kilometer hike from Cape Reinga at the top of New Zealand's North Island, and finishing at Bluff, at the bottom of the South Island. A 'thru' hike, which will take me four to five months to complete. River crossings, road walks, dehydrated meals, maddening mud, palpitating peaks, hospitable huts, charming culture and the most volatile weather NZ can throw at you. Replace spiders with sand flies, monotony with serendipity, home cooked comforts with vacuum sealed crunchies - a recipe for growth, a challenge of magnificent magnitude, an escape from this wayward world that has lost its footing. Nature is the only remedy for a world gone mad.
Dear travel bubble - please remain.
I plan. I research. I read. I prepare.
I am ready.
