My favourite hiking photos

These are some amazing trips we had in the past and it didn’t feel fair that they weren’t getting a shout out. So here are some of the best (and worst!) pictures from the last few years…

It's such a relief when you hear that a mountain hut has a toilet! Unless it looks like this... (no chemicals used here- the smell was horrific!)

That’s all for now, if I come across any other nice pics I’ll add them to this post! Future hikes will be documented as we go.

Happy hiking!

  1. Awesome photos, thx for sharing! We plan to hike the TMB next month so I’ll use your blog for lots of inspiration!

    Hi love your detailed description of the MTB hike. Realizing you did it 3 years + ago, can you upload your itinerary by any chance? Did you do the stages as per Kev Reynolds book or did you try to combine any stages? I ask because I dont think i appreciated how much up and down there was every day, and I’m wondering if each stage in the Kev R book is too much or maybe you did more than each stage? Appreciate your thoughts and itinerary if you can remember. We are planning for Mid August 2017. Thx Chitra
