As Australia’s premiere and most well-known multi-day walking track, I had been anticipating the Overland Track since I had decided to incorporate it into the walk during the planning phase earlier this year. It would also be the second and final time I would be walkin...

Monday 20th

I arrived in Rosebery at around midday on day 45 of the journey, and it couldn’t come sooner as the hilly, narrow road was heavily trafficked with large mining trucks and 4WDs, as well as tourist traffic. I would spend the next five days in Rosebery as it wa...

Wednesday 15th

Today was a day that I will always remember. There was not particular moment or event that made it so spectacular, but rather the combination of every part of the day that made the whole experience, like a timeless album. Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” or Radioh...

One of the main messages of 1900 Footprints is my belief that we should all slow our lives down a little, take away the distractions and connect with nature at a deeper level. 

So why then would I post all over social media platforms on such a frequent basis?

I know people who are amazing naturalists and communicators. When I hear these people talk or write about animals and plants it’s truly fascinating. But I’m not a research scientist. I don’t see myself as a naturalist, or even as someone who communicates interesting ti...

Waking up in a warm double bed was amazing, but I wished for just another hour of sleep. I breakfasted on muesli and the last of the yoghurt that my friends had brought me, then went over to Charles' office of the Skene Creek Beachside Caravan Park where I was staying....

It's hard to sum up a trip like the one that's just happened. Over the course of the last eight days, eight amazing people joined me along 90 of the 100 km of the Great Ocean Walk from the 12 Apostles to Apollo Bay. This is Part 1 of that journey.

Last Monday I was join...

Whilst hitchhiking between Vancouver and Banff, AB, Canada, I was lucky enough to be picked up early one morning by a man named Jim. I had been camping at a small secluded spot near a town in British Columbia.

Jim was nice enough to be able to take me to the neares...

Only 20 km today, but I made it to the 12 Apostles Visitors Centre which was the planned meeting point for my fellow hikers joining me on the Great Ocean Walk tomorrow. Waking up was slow, steady and delightful. The km did not flow this morning, but that was ok. I made...

Today I woke up to rain pattering on the outside of the tent. The great thing about rain is that it comes from clouds, and clouds keep heat in. I was warm and cosy and it was difficult to remove myself from such bliss. I dozed perhaps a bit longer than I should have. T...
