Hi, I’m Kate
I write, take photographs, and build things on the internet… and on weekends I hike.
Most of the time I hike close to home in the national parks around Sydney, and every now and then I head off on bigger trips. My next adventure is over to New Zealand to hike the Kepler Track, and later in the year I’m heading to Spain to do a section hike on the Camino de Santiago.
