On the way
My name is Marta, I’m 26 and I’m walking the length of New Zealand!
I have written countless to-do lists, New Year’s resolutions and all they do is collect dust. I’m done with the empty talks, I am literally going to ‘walk the walk’.
I’m sitting on the bus to Kaitaia trying to comprehend what it is I’m really doing here. I was so tired this morning and now after a shaky nap my stomach is turning on me. Could be from the coffee on an empty stomach, but also It could be from me going on a 5 months long walk living out of a bag, a very heavy bag I might add. Yes of course I’m nervous, but I’m also so excited. I’m going to have all this time to think, to reflect to really feel and take in the experiences. I have left my phone behind, no distractions no excuses, just the road ahead, strong legs, my bag and amazing friends surrounding me. I’m going to go through an entire freaking country, and yes I’ll miss Christmas and my friends at home, Ill smell like a rotten egg and I will be in incredible pain a lot but I’m going to walk for 5 months I’ going to have an experience worth a lifetime I am going to have some serious one on one bonding time with my self plus I have downloaded all these Spanish classes, so watch out world because Marta is coming for ya!
