I did it!
My very first solo camping and tramping trip!
Two epic days in Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park.
Camped at Whitehorse Hill DOC campground. It was packed, with lots of friendly people. I adopted a lovely UK couple of retired teachers for the night, and camped beside them. Met lots of lovely people. Clocked up 20km of hikes including Sealy Tarns track (2,200 stairs!).
Incredible clear night skies and the sound of several morepork— the best way to fall asleep in your tent. I was very grateful for my -5°C sleeping bag!
I can’t wait for my next solo adventure —it’s so liberating.
