[01/19] Heaphy Day 1 • The day was deceptively long with the three hour shuttle to track start and almost undetectable climb to the first hut. But hey, I still found myself taking photos of shooting stars in the middle of the night. ✨

Never pegged myself as the outdoorsy kind of girl but 4 years in Spain has taught me otherwise.
I'm enjoying the breathtaking views everytime we go hiking, and even though I'm exhausted during the hike, I always feel good and healthy after. 😍
What's one thing you've learnt recently about yourself?
Last week I made a very memorable trip to Italy 🇮🇹 for my first ever hike over 2 days. A trip into the mountains and some of the most beautiful scenery I'd ever seen.
Never had I not succeeded in completing a walk, but after this one I know better my physical limits and where naivety can get you! After an ok first few hours the terrain got more rocky and incredibly steep and I could no longer walk upright due to no more strength in my arms and legs, so I resorted to crawling for what seemed like forever. Darkness fell and we still had not reached out destination; Rifugio Brioschi; a hut on top of the mountain where we'd stay the night. Strong winds and ice increased as we got higher. In subzero temperatures we managed to get our crampons on and finish the trail along a steep and narrow ridge in almost total darkness. I thought I was either going to die of cold, fatigue, or by falling off the cliff... It took something special from inside, that sheer determination to just survive to get to the end (I know, cliché right? But they come from somewhere!), and an incredible hiking partner who made all the difference. Man was I grateful that evening when we got to the warmth of the hut. Grateful for being able to tell the tale. It's not one for an Instagram post but I started typing and here I am. Perhaps soon I'll write an article on my site. Stay tuned for that! For now, I'm very happy to share some photos and videos from Italy 😊 🇮🇹.
Teleport me to a beach bluer than this
