Yay, I’ve done it – I have walked the length of New Zealand!
Thanks to those that walked with me, help fundraise and helped me out in many ways. It has been a fantastic journey that I have gained so much from.
Next challenge – watch this space…
What was the I’m Not alone Walk of NZ…
Hello, I’m Kylie and for the past couple of years I have 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?
So I’m doing it!
I have already completed the North Island in 2014 and now I’m taking on the challenge of the South Island.
Each day, I will have to get up, no matter how many blisters I have, no matter how sore my legs are or what the weather is like, and get walking. The length of the country is a long way to drive, let alone walk!
The South Island walk will kick off in Wellington on 27th October 2015. The longest day walking will be 35 km and there are many days with a lot of rugged terrain. It will take me 87 days to get to the bottom of the country. Each section, I need someone to accompany me walking so I am Not Alone.
I’m looking for people to join me and be part of this challenge. Check out Walk with Kylie in the South Island for more information
