About Me: Kristin, obsessive traveler, insane walker, adventurer. I've been called all of those things in the last few months as I made my way across the world to my new, post-university life. The beginning of 2008 saw me in New Zealand, trying to do everything I could in the ten weeks I had there. I hiked hundreds of kilometers through the backcountry and enjoyed most of it (except for those last few km's each day)! It really is God's Country and a natural wonderland, and I'd love to go back and see the things I missed one day. I'd also love to take off from work and do a 6 month/1 year trip through South America, but I've got to work on my Spanish before then! I'm currently based in Perth, Australia (although I'll be spending quite a bit of time on the East Coast in Brisbane/the Sunshine Coast as well). I haven't been in Perth too long, but it's a beautiful city and one that I'm thoroughly enjoying living in.
