The night skies of 2018 ✨

The night sky in its obscurity + mystery is such a catalyst into boundless wondering for me. Usually, I think about people and connection.

And the night sky in its enormity in scale + beauty…well, I feel as though I could spend a lifetime capturing it and never feel like I’ve done it justice.

As we near the end of 2018, I am even more contemplative and reflective than usual and I feel so fortunate to have spent so much time under a starry night sky this year.

Here are my favourite night sky photos and some musings on people and connection.

Week 3/4: The Routeburn + Caples Tracks (some of them)

My third week was spent primarily hiking the Routeburn + Caples Tracks, during which I did A LOT OF THINKING. Like the most thinking I have probably ever done in my life and that is saying something, because I am one of the deepest and widest thinkers that you’ll ever meet…so for week 3, come on into my crazy mind…

My backpacking gear list

I am often asked about what gear I use in the outdoors when backpacking (which is hiking with everything you need in your bag for overnight + longer) so I thought I'd put together a very comprehensive list, divided into must-haves and nice-to-haves…

FINDING BIG IMPACT IN THE LITTLE THINGS

It’s so easy to get wound up in this big, busy world. The to-do list is ever-growing and it seems we’re on an endless quest to expand and upgrade. I’m guilty of it too. My chase revolves around a compulsion to explore new places. I catch myself thinking of adventures and destinations like they are collectible badges, and sometimes, the impulse is so great that everything else takes second place. It’s important, in these instances, to rebalance…

72 Hours in Christchurch with Jetstar NZ

It took me a day or two to 'get' Christchurch...but the town definitely eventually won me over. This is a place of great diversity - there's the growing urban centre, the mixing of old English heritage and new up-and-coming culture and the ocean and the hills as an adventure playground. Here's what I got to over 3 days.

Summertime in Thredbo with Pure Chalet

We arrived at Thredbo and checked into Pure Chalet, where, from the balcony, we could see the alpine village dozing under the Australian sun, without a cloud in the sky. The runs which were snow-covered and swarming with skiiers and boarders just months ago now shone green. The chairlifts - all but one - hung still in the summer air...
