If you are given the choice between walking for 2,300km or writing a book, make sure you go for a walk! Writing books is much more difficult…
That said, I’ve done it!
A couple of months ago I took delivery of ‘Blisters, Bugs and Abandoned Underwear – a solo trek of New Zealand’ and have been shipping it around the globe to everyone who pre-ordered their limited edition copies. It was a humbling experience to complete the project and remember everyone being so supportive of my adventure.
I do have some books left over. If you would like a copy (NZ$35 + shipping), flick me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll forward you the bank transfer details. At this point it’s not available in book stores, though I am following up some leads to make this happen.
My goal for 2015 is to create an electronic e-book version, so keep an eye out for that notification. I also plan to update the details of this blog, since it seems people are still reading it; no doubt during the planning of their own attempt at Te Araroa.
I trust this finds you happy, healthy and looking forward to your own adventures in 2015.
