One of our TA crew has finally put pen to paper and published her story – the heartfelt and often funny true story following the ups and sometimes downs of her epic walk the length of NZ. Join her (and the crew) on her fantastic adventure.
From the books prologue: “This story is not another “self-finding-story”, it is not about someone who had to make a drastic change to her life. My friends and parents are well, I didn’t have super bad depression or anxiety. I may have had some minor issues – but don’t we all?”
From Chapter One: “Mum!” I say, “I want to hike the Appalachian Trail in the States.” “You want to do what?” she asks, “It is 3000 kilometers, it’s gonna take me six months…” “It’s in the States” she doesn’t let me talk. “They have bears, the people have weapons, they have guns! I don’t like the idea of you walking in the forests in a land full of nutters. Can’t you please just find another trail like the Camino de Santiago or just travel to any other safe country?!”
With a little disgust over possibly having to give up the Appalachian Trail, I ask Google. My fingers slowly write the words “New Zealand” and “long-distance trail”. My index finger presses the enter button. The screen changes: “Te Araroa Trail!”, “Te what??”
I will be walking the Pacific Crest Trail next year in April 2019 and to do that I need financial support!
As I can’t sing or dance I can’t go busking – but what I tried is writing – and LOOK: 👀
After months of typing, weeks of reading, days of checking, many sleepless nights, excitement, frustration, tears and joy, my little Book-Baby “A Tale from a Trail – Te Araroa – The Long Pathway” is finally in store. 📚😃
“A Tale from a Trail” at the moment is available as an EBOOK for KINDLE on AMAZON. Read it on your phones or tablets with the Kindle app or on your Kindle E-Readers.📱
