Hiking off the Christmas food and drink coma

For me the joy of the silly season really is getting together with friends and family – eating, playing games, eating, toasting with glass of bubbles ๐Ÿฅ‚ and lets face it – eating some more ๐Ÿ—, but these holidays can often be so busy and full that they go by in the blink of an eye and by the end you feel as if you need a break from your holiday …. go figure ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ.

After all the “festivities” taking the opportunity to get in a bush walk while all the whanau (family) is together is not only a great way to take stock, be grateful and breathe a little but is also a good way to burn off all those extra calories ๐ŸŽ‚

I managed to grab half a day away from the madness (“children”) to get out with a friend that was up from Christchurch; We walked theย Karangahake Summit Track in the Karangahake Gorge (SH2). It was a good 2 hour uphill battle and a stunning 360 degree view as reward, not a bad spot to enjoy some left overs for lunch …… and a candy cane for Christmas cheer.

Have you got an adventure planned during your break? We’d love to hear/see/read about it, follow us on Facebook and Instagramย and tag us @forestfamilynz to share your story.

Nga mihi, Anita ๐Ÿฅœ
