Pilot post

First post on this site, a bit hungover and thus not so stoked ATM. Anyway, this blog is for me to document a travel to New Zealand, hiking the Te Araroa Trail south bound (Starting in the north, ending in the south). About 3000km in total, running through the whole country, both Islands. Check out the link below to find out more. 
Posts will be regarding everything that comes to my mind, but I guess some of it will be useful to others as well. 
Furthermore, the name of this site is a tribute to my mother who sometimes doesn't get the quotes quite right. Yesterday she were supposed to be cool stating that she had "been there, done that". . .
