About followingthearrows

Hi, I’m Kat.I’ve always had wanderlust and this was possibly fuelled by growing up in the multicultural surrounds of Melbourne, Australia. I would take a sandwich to school and trade it with friends for spanakopita and baklava, amazed that a boring old sandwich could be traded for such exotic delights.While studying at university, I took an internship in Tokyo and climbed Mt. Fuji for the first time. ‘A wise man climbs Mt. Fuji, a fool climbs it twice’ is a popular Japanese saying… so I climbed it 7 times. From Tokyo to Toronto to London where I’m now based, I’m searching for many of life’s answers, and hoping to find them somewhere along a trail.Since quitting an office job in 2013, I’ve walked over 12,000km in Japan, the USA and Europe and also cycled the length of Japan. I've written a daily blog of each in addition to two guidebooks - The Camino Portuguese & Japan’s Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage.See you on a trail!Buen Camino, Happy Trails, Solvitur Ambulando!Kat

    1. Hi can you answer a couple questions please ? 1. Is the water safe to drink from these locations or do you boil/filter it first ? 2. How much weight are you carrying excluding water ? Thanks, enjoying following you, great hike, good luck.
