This weekend Nat and I headed off to spend a couple of days walking the Abel Tasman Track, a stunning route at the top of the South Island. To do the 60 km path properly takes three to four days, and you carry all your stuff with you, staying on camp sites or in huts. We did the lightweight version, staying overnight in the lovely Awaroa Lodge. Access to the route by road is limited so the best option is to take a water taxi from Kaiteriteri, and then get one back from your end point. The walk is absolutely stunning.
