Wild Foods FestivalMar 12, 2011
I was just one of the many Cantabrians who took a breather from the tiring after shakes we%u2019re still experiencing in Christchurch on a daily basis and headed over the Alpine Fault line to the West Coast to join in the stomach-challenging fun at the annual Hokitika Wildfoods Festival! It%u2019s been going for 22 years now - a celebration of little Hokitika and the wild foods...

Tekapo TimesMar 05, 2011

I was beginning to think this day would never come. It's all a bit surreal to realise that the next land I'm going to see, going to be stepping foot on will be 'The Land of the Long White Cloud' New Ze...

The Southern Most Point of Mainland OzDec 04, 2010
When I get an idea in my head, I don't like to fail. I've become a real 'tick the box' person. I like to achieve. Probably because I have been such an underachiever my whole life. I'd looked at my Australian map about a week prior and that's when it dawned on me %uFFFD I'm so close!
