I always knew I loved to travel, when I was younger my family would always go on an annual trip somewhere. Whether overseas or within New Zealand, it was always the highlight of the year.
It wasn’t until 2019 that I truly realised my deep passion for travelling and the great outdoors.
After graduating from Waikato University, I embarked on a 4-month backpacking tour of Northland and the Bay of Plenty.
I started off doing the usual touristy things but soon found that my favourite days were filled with some sort of hike, and it was later in Northland that I completed my first overnight hike.
