Welcome to tarasjourneys.com!
On my website you will find photos, videos and the stories of my adventures in the beautiful land of Aotearoa/New Zealand, the place that I am lucky enough to call home. I have created this website to share and document my journeys, with my aim being to hopefully inspire you along the way.
During the past few years I have completed a couple of epic kayaking trips, the biggest being a winter circumnavigation of the South Island in 2012. A year later, in the summer of 2013/2014, I spent five weeks paddling around Stewart Island, followed by a circumnavigation of the North Island. On the 6th of April 2014, I became the first woman to have paddled around both the North Island, and the whole of New Zealand.
I have written a book about my trip around the South Island, which was published by Craig Potton Publishing in October 2014. So if you'd like to support what I'm doing the best way to do that is to buy a copy! Click here if you would like to purchase a signed copy.
I invite you to follow my journeys.
