Welcome to Tinytramper – these are the stories of my long distance hiking and backpacking adventures in New Zealand and the UK.

About Me

I’m Jules – a British ex-pat, adventure loving, tiny tramper. I do my very best to live a slightly unconventional lifestyle, filled with as much travel and outdoor adventure as possible.

In 2016 I became a Kiwi, and what better way to celebrate than by hiking Te Araroa trail the length of New Zealand. I love the outdoors, and have a lot of travel under my belt, but I had never done anything quite like a 3000km thru-hike!!

I blogged my experiences for my friends and family – which then became a useful resource for other Te Araroa walkers.

When I returned from Te Araroa trail I headed to the UK to visit my family and hike the South West Coast Path. I’m now back in New Zealand gearing up for a 2018/19 summer living in my little van, doing some hiking and enjoying my beautiful country.

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Thanks, Jules
