It may be warm outside and the water may look inviting, but as @kyle_hunter found out, Lake Pukaki is super cold! And yes, Lake Pukaki really is this blue, you'll be rubbing your eyes when you see this amazing glacial lake 💦

Goodbye New Zealand! You have been absolute magic and I feel so lucky to have been able to spend so much time exploring all that you have to offer!! (Except not actually all you have to offer and will have to come back soon to continue exploring!) .

The mountains, the lakes and the rugged beaches have been amazing but what really made this trip unforgettable was all the people I met along the way. Each one of you has changed my life in a way that you’ll never know. The kindness I have been shown (especially as a solo traveler), the adventures we have been on and  the stories we have shared will be in my heart forever. To the people I met briefly,  the people I got really close with, and everyone in between, I can’t thank you enough for all the special memories. .

I am off to the airport at the moment, about to fly to Sydney, Australia where I will start my new life and new adventure! It’s hard saying goodbye to all the people I have met here in NZ but I’m excited for this next part of my life and I cannot wait to see who comes into my life next and the adventures that are about to be had!! Another chapter in my life closed, as the next one opens 💛☺️ .
. 🌎 Have any of you ever moved to a different country?? If so, any tips for adjusting ??

This is the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, one of New Zealand's most famous (and popular) hikes! On any given day, hundreds of hikers are scattered amongst this gorgeous viewpoint...can you spot the hundreds of other hikers?? Probably not!
.
That's because there were none! The forecast for bad weather meant many people cancelled their plans...but not us! Our persistence paid off and in the moments that counted, mother nature calmed and we had an epic view!
.
Did you know that the Tongariro Crossing is part of a longer 3-4 day hike called the Tongariro Circuit? If you find yourself wanting more than just a day hike, this is a great option! We just completed the circuit and it took us 3 days! Although it was mostly rainy, it was still fantastic!
.
Who's done the Tongariro Crossing or Circuit ...or plans on it?

Something I’ve learnt about myself is that I’m the happiest and most myself when I’m outside, sweaty and a little dirty. Hiking and camping (especially on my own) brings back that primal feeling and realization that we really don’t need much to live and really don’t need much to be happy. 
Being outside in the mountains completely recharges me and forces me to reassess my priorities and what’s important to me. I’ve realized that I don’t need to escape to the other side of the world to get these feelings, because unfortunately that’s just not sustainable. Instead, it’s about finding ways to make this a lifestyle and get outside and do what makes me happy as much as possible even when I’m back home and in my day-to-day routine. ➴

The easiest way to do this is to surround myself with like minded people who have a passion for being in the outdoors and getting away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. So if you’re like that and wanna head out for an adventure, hit me up ☺️❤️ ➴

Does anyone know what I’m talking about or do I sound like a crazy person? Hahaha 🙈 Tag your adventure buddy
