About

Hello, a little bit about me. I am a 32-year-old girl from New Zealand, who is slightly below average height. Sometimes I have brown hair unless it is between dyes, I have poo brown eyes, crooked teeth, and a cheesy smile.

I tend to see the world a different way to most people and am often described as quirky, unique or weird. That’s ok though, everyone is weird, they just show it in varying degrees. Plus who wants to be the same as everybody else? If we were all the same the world would be a very dull place. The world needs a bit of fun and a bit of unique in it. We are only here for a short while so we may as well have some fun along the way.

I love being outdoors, walking, exploring, camping and finding adventures. I am a creature of habit, I also get bored if I do the same thing every day. I like spontaneity, I also enjoy routine. A complete contrast of characters, I am a girl and we are difficult creatures to decipher.

On the blog

On this blog you can find more about hiking, tips + tricks to help you make the most of your hike, hiking guides, camping, New Zealand Guides and Overseas Guides.

I am a huge hiking fan (as you can probaly guess) so hiking is featured throughout this website. My aim is to inspire others to get outside and discover the benfits of hiking and the outdoors has for themselves. There is nothing better than being surrounded by Mother Nature and all her work. She didn’t put in all that hard work creating such a beautiful place for us to sit inside and not make the most of it. 

Traveling is also something that I thoroughly enjoy. I love experiencing different cultures, learning about the world we live in and the people who inhabit it. Questioning the world we live in and observing people helps us not only learn about ourselves but learn about life in general.

Why should you stick around?

I want to INSPIRE you to get outside and explore your patch of the world. To help you out I have created lots of tips + tricks so whether you are a first time nature explorer or more experienced, there is something for everyone. 

Wednesdays: destination day where a hike or a destination is featured. As I am currently doing a 52 hikes in 52 weeks challenge, many of these hikes will be featured. Included are half-day hikes, day hikes and soon multi-day hikes.
