I love travelling, exploring and most of all, walking in beautiful natural locations. One of the things I enjoy most before travelling is researching. Often in my research I have stumbled across blogs with pictures and track notes that I have found incredibly useful.
Given my intention to continue travelling and walking, whether in my own backyard or to areas further afield, I thought I might as well put my experiences in a blog too. Hopefully someone, somewhere stumbles across one of my posts and finds it useful when planning a trip for themselves.
As this is my first post here is a quick bit of information about myself:
- I am a Christian believer and I am happiest while out exploring the natural world.
- I live in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia. I love my home town, it is an incredibly peaceful and beautiful place to live.
- My favourite things in all the wold are: spending time with my family, mountains, walking in nature, coffee and a good pizza.
- So far I have been fortunate enough to have travelled fairly extensively in my own state (Queensland), across the east coast of Australia, and throughout Italy, New Zealand, Canada and Tasmania. Based on my travels so far my favourite places in the world would be the South Island of New Zealand, the Dolomites in Italy, British Columbia in Canada, Lord Howe Island in Australia and Tasmania in Australia.
- Of the walks that I have done so far my most memorable would be the 32 km day I did to Panorama Ridge and Lake Garibaldi in Canada. It was an exhausting but completely incredible day. After that would be the Hooker Valley and the Rob Roy Glacier tracks in New Zealand.
- I have a huge bucket list of walks I would like to do but the ones at the top of my list include the Overland Track, the Great Walks in New Zealand (and a number of day hikes in New Zealand), the Tour du Mont Blanc in France, Italy & Switzerland, the Three Passes Trek in Nepal, the Torres del Paine O Trek in Chile and the Huayhuash Circuit in Peru. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do all of these walks but dreams are free 🙂
Well I think that just about covers it.
My next series of posts will be about a recent trip to Tasmania and a number of day walks my family and I did while we were there.
