Another very beautiful day on trail. Mostly coastal and beach walks. Went for a swim, binged on an incredible amount of food in town, got a quick ride from a girl who gave us club mate but dropped us way off trail and ended up finding another scenic campsite on the beach. Loving this trail and all it provides
🇳🇿Walking New Zealand | Tongariro National Park, Round The Mountain track - Day 1. Sunset on Mt Ruapehu. In my seek after freedom and wilderness, I decided that I will not stick to the TA trail anymore. New Zealand has really more to offer! From now I will forge my own path, still heading south, mixing the trails (including Te Araroa) and the ideas. And I’m really, really happy. Hike your own hike!
