About Me

I’m Jules – a tiny tramper and weekend adventurer. I emigrated from the UK to New Zealand in 2006 and ten years later I became a Kiwi. What better way to celebrate than by hiking Te Araroa trail the length of New Zealand!  I blogged my experiences for my friends and family, which has become a useful resource for other walkers.

I have since settled in Nelson at the top of the South Island, and with three national parks on my doorstep, I continue to enjoy the backcountry almost every weekend.
