Welcome to Long Trails and my first TA blog post! This is more of a test post than anything, but rest assured, I will be writing a lot more about the TA before I embark on the walk from early November.
I am currently in Vietnam, pretty much half way between the UK and NZ. I am due to fly to Auckland around mid October and should have booked all my flights soon. I am in Asia catching up with work and admin and enjoying the lovely food!
I am considering stopping off in Australia and testing out my equipment on the Bibbulmun Track in WA. I have a new tent and it’s only been put up indoors just to ensure it worked! I need to work out logistics for Australia as my plan was to stay in Asia until flying direct to NZ, but having read a lot of good stuff about the Bibb, I am tempted to do a week or two of it.
