My goal is to walk the length of New Zealand in two sections. In the summer of 2018/2019 I completed the 1700km North Island section from Cape Reinga to Wellington. On the 29th of December this year, I will set off to complete the second and final 1300km leg from Ship Cove to Bluff.

Why have I decided to do this? There are many reasons. But mainly I am motivated by a desire to get outdoors and experience the back country of my beautiful home land. And there is no better way to experience it than on foot, taking The Path Less Travelled. So please follow me on my journey down New Zealand’s Long Pathway, Te Araroa.
