The thought of travelling solo can be intimidating, stressful and downright terrifying… especially when you’re on the other side of the world! At the same time, it might just be one of the most exhilarating and life-changing things you’ll ever do.
Originally from the USA and now travelling the world on an extended 20-month honeymoon (the dream, right?!), Sarah and Tim found some spare time to fill us in on their Stray adventure.
Canyoning is a totally unique and exciting way to see the Abel Tasman. We get right off the beaten track and head inland away from the coast to explore the beautifully sculpted granite rock canyons in the heart of the National Park.
