Across New Zealand in 3 and a half minutes!

I‘ve just finished this short highlights video of the Te Araroa. It’s roughly in chronological order from the Top of the North Island to the bottom of the south, unfortunately I don’t have any footage of us getting to the end due to a memory card malfunction… Song used: Bow Wow by Tommy Bass

Flickr photo set – I’ve edited our mountain of photos down to reasonably easy to flick through 200 photo set of the highlights. And then a slightly longer 1000 odd photo set that covers the trail in a bit more depth.

    Hi Cookie,
    we are walking the TA at the moment. We ve done already Cape Reinga to Auckland – we re enjoying this trail so much :-)!
    We plan to do a detour to Coromandel Peninsula. We have today and tomorrow for planning. Have you any hints for us? Thx for your maps these will help for sure.
    Would be great if you could send a short email with some comments to Coromandel :-)!
    All the best for you guys! Your blog and your videos were really inspiring for us to do this crazy adventure – thx for that!
