A couple of weeks ago I had the craziest hiking adventure to date with @adventure.venture 😆 we left way too late trying to get to a rock bivvy in Mt. Aspiring National Park, has trouble crossing rivers, took a wrong turn, the trail was about 5 km longer than we thought and arrived at the end and spent two hours bushbashing in the dark before giving up on finding the bivvy and passing out together in the grass at midnight with no tent only to awaken at dawn by a well executed attack by an army of sandflies 🙈 it’s not always glamorous but those s make the best stories, and this view was worth it! I’d do it again!

One of my favorite things about spending time on farms is watching the sheep dogs work - they are so smart and definitely put the pups I grew up with to shame haha! What do you reckon - is this little guy gonna grow up a top worker? 🐶 @luxuryfarmstaynz

I love exploring the stunning forests of New Zealand 🍃 I never get tired of them, except when I end up bushbashing in the dark at midnight by accident with @adventure.venture, but that’s a story for another day 😆 @docgovtnz dayhikesnz
