In July 2014, after 5 years living in beautiful Manly (North of Sydney in New South Wales), I decided to quit my job, sell everything and live a nomad life on one of the most challenging (but also rewarding) trail in the world.
Four months later, in October 2014, I had gotten rid of all my posessions and I moved to Victoria. After much delays and 3 additional months of planning, preparation and training, I was as ready as I could and I hit the trail on the 1st of March 2015.
The Bicentennial Trail
I’m following the Bicentennial National Trail (BNT), starting south and making my way north. See Route & Progress page to see how I am tracking. “The Bicentennial National Trail (BNT), originally known as the National Horse Trail is one of the longest marked multi-use trails in the world, stretching 5,330 kilometres from Cooktown, Queensland, through New South Wales and the ACT to Healesville, 60 km north-east of Melbourne. This trail runs the length of the rugged Great Dividing Range through national parks, private property and alongside of wilderness areas. The BNT trail follows old coach roads, stock routes, brumby tracks, rivers and fire trails. It was originally intended for horses, but is these days promoted also for cycling and walking. However it is not yet entirely suited to these two activities.” Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicentennial_National_Trail
