I had just sat down for lunch yesterday (during my catch-up portion of ‘get into Kerikeri’) when Rebecca and Lucy trotted along the trail. They’d been following me for a few days, having also started at Cape Reinga. We swapped a few brief tales of ‘been there, done that’.
It was awesome to chat with other people who ‘knew’ why I’m doing what I’m doing, and also have the scratches and blisters to show for it.
Good luck ahead girls! Don’t be like me and go too hard, even though you have a deadline to walk towards…
With a lot of the walking, the scenery is similar so I’m not taking many photos. But here are a couple more for your enjoyment.
