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…
