The Routeburn Track – How I hiked my way to Queenstown Airport

The Routeburn Track – How I hiked my way to Queenstown Airport

When I get into my dry and warm sleeping bag this night, my body all sore and achy, I still can’t believe I did it. I still can’t believe I made it through this day. For most people it doesn’t seem much to hike this amount of time in a chaotic weather, they’re used to hike anyway no matter the weather. However, for me, it’s a giant step.

Goodbye Te Anau...

Goodbye Te Anau...

-MARCH 2016-

In March, I already knew it, I had to say goodbye to Te Anau. I quitted my Banana Girl job at the Fresh Juice on March 11th, planned a weekend in Dunedin, then a 4 days hike on the Kepler Track, followed by a 2 days hike on the Routeburn Track and finally my flight from Queenstown to Denpasar was booked for March 27th.

In March, do as you like!

WORKING IN TE ANAU - THE BANANA GIRL ROUTINE

-FEBRUARY 2016-

February starts with the dance of fruits and veggies. It reminds me of my previous boss, M. Moreau, while I was working as a bookseller at Virgin Megastore, who used to tell me to imagine my decks as an orange stall in a supermarket. You don’t want to buy some when it’s empty, you have to make a beautiful pyramid of oranges to attract the customer. Clean, Full and Tidy. That was his motto. Only a small step from mangas to oranges ? Let’s see.
