About a year and a half ago I finished Te Araroa and I’m still thinking about the blackberries and the mud and the gorse and all of the amazing people I met on the way. It’s constantly playing in my mind. Was definitely the most alive I’ve ever felt in my entire life. I filmed the entire thing mainly to give myself a creative project to work on while I making money between long-distance hikes and it is chock full of information through my experiences along Te Araroa!
