Springtime in Minnesota! Make the best of it and smile while visiting a frozen waterfall :).

We are back home!!! After being awake for over 38h flying from Auckland to LAX and SEA and then driving to Port Angeles we caught up on sleep 💤 😴 for 13 blissful hours. Then we headed out to our beautiful piece of heaven near Crescent Bay and were apparently too jetlagged to both look decent at the same time in a selfie. So voila, here you have two pics 😂. So good to be back!!! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pnwonderland #backhome #jetlag #outandabout #travelbug #travelgram #thegreatpnw #theoutbound #thegreatoutdoors #pnw #wanderer #wanderfolk #selfie_time #optoutside #liveauthentic #ontheroadagain #findyourpath #crescentbay #saltcreekrecreationarea #portangeles

One last New Zealand waterfall! Wairere Falls were a perfect end to a great trip around New Zealand. Now it’s time to head back stateside and get this spring and summer going! . . . . . . . . . . . . #hikingadventures #liveauthentic #optoutside #hikinggram #adventureisoutthere #adventurethatislife #neverstopexploring #wairerefalls #optoutside #outandabout #theoutbound #liveagreatstory #hikerselfie #findyourpath #outdoorlife #vanlife #pnw #discovernewzealand
The view from our camper this morning. The most spectacular sunrise in a perfect setting.

My “loot” collecting shells and pretty stones at Ward Beach. There’s such variety and the rocks are oh so smoooooooth!

A magnificent hike with @180forward at dawn on the #hookervalleytrail @mountcooknz - the light was beautiful and we had the trail all to ourselves. A morning to remember :). . . . . . . . . . . #hikingadventures #adventurevisuals #wlolife #wanderlust #wanderfolk #180forward #visualsoflife #outdoorwomen #girldiscoverers #hikinggirl #womeninthewild #optoutside #liveauthentic #neverstopexploring #travelbug #vanlife
Not a bad place to finish a book isn’t it? A freedom camp spot just 40 min from Queenstown and I got to complete the amazing “Pure Land” - a harrowing and sad true story of a murder in the Grand Canyon. A clash of cultures and a history of trauma and abuse. But it is incredibly well researched and written and I can only highly recommend it to anyone interested in Native American culture, the outdoors and inspiring life stories. #getoutandread . . . . . . . . . . #pureland #queenstown #discovernewzealand #girldiscoverers #adventurereaders #outandabout #outdoorwomen #vanlife #optoutside #ontheroad #wanderlust #wanderfolk #travelbug #kindle #adventureisoutthere #freedomcamping #liveauthentic
A very challenging climb up to Avalanche Peak today - 3,300 ft of elevation gain over less than 3 miles scrambling over rocks, slick roots and boulders, but man oh man, were the views rewarding! We climbed through the fog and above the clouds to see the glory of the Southern Alps. . . . . . . . . . . . . #adventurevisuals #modernoutdoors #theoutbound #180forward #wanderlust #visualsoflife #wlolife #neverstopexploring #wildplaces #hikingram #optoutside #newzealand #discovernewzealand #wanderer #wanderfolk #vanlife #findyourpath #iamoutdoorz #travelingram #locationindependent #travelbug #seenz
Sunset in Mount Kaputar National Park where we had a beautiful campspot complete with friendly kangaroos all to ourselves. Awesome way to spend our last night camping out of William Jolly. . . . . . . . . . . . . #sunset #mountkaputar #nsw #seeaustralia #nature_seekers #180forward #neverstopexploring #modernoutdoors #momentslikethis #visualsoflife #wheretheroadtakesus #optoutside #wanderer #wildplaces #adventuresinoz #aussieadventures #iamoutdoorz #lifeontheroad #vanlife #travelingram #liveagreatstory #travelbug
We hiked the fabled Tongariro Alpine Crossing yesterday - 19km through the volcanic wastelands of Mount Doom, down a long series of switchbacks with spectacular views of Lake Taupo and on the last leg along magical rain forest trails. It’s on every New Zealand traveler’s bucket list, a “must do!”, and “one of the top ten day hikes in the world!” This popularity, however, comes at a price... the trail is so crowded that queues and bottlenecks are a constant companion over the entire length of the track. We loved the scenery - how could you not?! - but we did not enjoy the hike. This is Disneyland pretending to be a wilderness experience. A real shame. But what can you do? What do you think? Restrict access through a permit system? Charge an entry fee? Allow private vehicles to come to the park at their own leisure and time and not in a shuttle? . . . . . . . . . . . #womeninthewild #newzealand #nzmustdo #visualsoflife #travelgram #180forward #adventureisoutthere #findyourpath #optoutside #newzealandpics #outandabout #wlolife #adventurevisuals #liveagreatstory #liveauthentic #wanderlust #wandernz #seenewzealand #neverstopexploring #travelbug #vanlife #ontheroad
Good morning, New Zealand 🇳🇿! We arrived in Auckland a few days ago and are starting to get settled into a new kind of camping routine in the rented van. Luckily, we are currently still on the North Island and cyclone Gita missed us completely. Instead we get treated to a lonely camp spot by this pretty lake - it even comes with its own families of Black Swans! . . . . . . . . . . #newzealand #seenewzealand #northisland #travelgram #visualsoflife #dawn #blackswan #wlolife #adventurevisuals #vanlife #findyourpath #adventureisoutthere #wildplaces #travelbug #wanderfolk #wanderlust #ontheroad #travelepic #liveauthentic #liveagreatstory #iamoutdoorz #optoutside #sunrise
