  • “Going Missing” on the Copland Track

    March 25, 2015

    I sat in a Wanaka internet cafe, waiting as the infernally slow internet attempted to load my email inbox. It was 2008 and I only had a $30 brick of a phone and no laptop, so this was the only way I could connect to the rest of the world (and I was fine with…

  • How the Hooker Valley Track Nearly Killed My Dad

    March 18, 2015

    New Zealand is a country that inspires you to go hiking out into the wilderness.  Rugged mountains, picturesque shorelines, and golden tussock-covered rolling hills represent but a small portion of the amazing landscapes you can see if you just lace up a pair of boots, slip on a backpack, and head out onto the trail.

  • The Best Ways Not to Drive Into a Norwegian Fjord

    February 10, 2015

    My recent travels spanned from New Zealand to the UK and involved me renting three cars in three different countries. One country was in the middle of summer; the others were in the depths of winter. Two countries drive on the left side of the road; one thought it would be different and drive on the right.…

    January 11, 2015

    Like most people, I am still struggling to comprehend that it is 2015. Where did 2014 go? As I sit here on a plane bound for my second adventure of the year–my first being the last few days of an amazing two-week road trip around NZ’s South Island with my family–I know that travel is…
