So chuffed to be finished! But also a tiny bit sad it’s over… “Shall we walk back Cookie?”. Good luck to the Tasty Trekkers who’ll be finishing soon too! You guys rock :D
Loads more to update you with over the last two sections, so much has happened – ‘coming soon’ on the blog. Better get writing!
Our hair is still sticky with champagne spray, our socks are as crispy as battered Stuart Island Blue Cod and our boots are hung up for good. We’ll fill you in on the final details as soon as we can, there’s soooo much to get through.. We have to be out of New Zealand by the 17th of April before our 6 months visas run out, so we’re currently heading back up to Auckland to prepare to for the next leg of our holiday.
That’s right, after 6 months on holiday we’re going on holiday! The next leg is going to be quite a contrast, but fortunately Island No. 3 should only take us a few minutes to walk across!

Amazing! Congratulations. The sad bit is that one of my favourite blogs won’t have many more regular updates.
Well done guys :)
It’s been very enjoyable following your journey. Now go find some beer and enjoy a nice fry-up tomorrow :)
Bloody amazing guys, I am so proud of you. Can’t wait for you to come home so you can regale us with stories of your travels. xxx
Congrats – it’s been great fun following along! =)
Congratulations, it’s been inspiring viewing your journey!
So great to see, you made it! Brilliant job, guys! Congrats!
It’s been a great pleasure “walking“ with you thru the entire country. A bit sad though it’s over now.
Enjoy your holidays and have a safe trip home.
Thanks so much guys!! It’s been brilliant to know we have had so many people cheering us along all the way. And checking in to make sure we’re still alive too ;)
It’s going to be sad not to be on the trail anymore, camping out and meeting crazy people, but it’ll be awesome to get onto phase two of the adventure – The Cook Islands! We’re casting ourselves away on a desert island! WooHooo! So, stay tuned for lots of Wilson jokes, and Cookie looking even more like Tom Hanks by the day. There will be fishing and coconut adventures a plenty ;)
See you all soon back in Blighty, for the mother of all booze ups. You’re all invited!
Congratulations! Ya’ll have done amazing! This has become one of my more favorite blogs (just like the CDT updates!) & I will miss seeing your fabulous pictures & reading your updates.

Well done Nicky and Cookie. Congratulations. Another trip complete and thanks for sharing it with us again. How does it compare to the CDT Cookie? The scenery looks way better and far more varied.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following your journey from Virginia USA. You are both so inspiring and beautiful! The photos, descriptions, stories, sunrises, splashes, meats, bugs, and birds were all amazing! Congratulations to you both! Best of luck on all your future endeavors! -Cole
Absolutely amazing news, well done you two.
So so proud of you Nicky who’d have thought that you’d end up walking 3000 KM over proper big ass mountains and ting! A huge, positive step forward Sticky Lickson.
Lot’s of love and respect.
Congratulations from Boston, Massachusetts!
I’ve really enjoyed following your progress from the start and I’m a little sad it’s over! The photography has been amazing and the whole account entirely entertaining. Congrats again and enjoy your well-deserved rest.
