Yay, I’ve done it – I have walked the length of New Zealand!
Thanks to those that walked with me, contributed to the fundraising and helped me out in so many ways. It has been a fantastic journey that I have gained so much from it.
What was the I’m Not alone Walk of NZ…
Hello, I’m Kylie and I thought it would be a great challenge to walk the length of New Zealand…
BUT….When I told my husband about my plans, his main comment was: “You’re not doing that on your own!”
From his comment I expanded on the “Not Alone” theme:
- What if I had to have someone always walking with me?
- What if I and the other walkers raised money for the Mental Health Foundation along the way?
Each day, I had to get up, no matter how many blisters I had, no matter how sore my legs were or what the weather was like, and get walking. The length of the country is a long way to drive, let alone walk! I had people accompany me walking every day so I was Not Alone.
