Hike Through Te Araroa with Olivier Moly and his GorillaPod

By | Artist Profile, Friends of Joby, Gorillapod, Photography | One Comment

Hankering for a getaway, but stuck at the office? Us too! Thankfully, our friend Olivier Moly is on a grand adventure hiking a 3000 km long trail called Te Araroa in New Zealand and you can follow along! Check out his site Hike Through Te Araroa where he posts updates and beautiful photography for a daily dose of inspiration. 

Here is a little from Olivier about his trip and his favorite tripod the GorillaPod SLR-Zoom.

I’m Olivier. The main idea of my adventure is to cross New Zealand hiking via a long trail called Te Araroa. This path was inaugurated in 2011, so it is the newest long trail in the world. This is a 3000 km trail stretching across New Zealand from the Top North (Cap Reinga) to the bottom South (Bluff). I think it will take me about 4 or 5 months and I started on the 3rd of December.

I started my blog Hike Through Te Araroa to allow people following my trip on the Internet.  I studied photography for three years in France and so this blog will be more a photography documentary than a writing documentary. I brought my GorillaPod SLR-Zoom with Ballhead for the trip because I needed the best tripod and the lightest one. 3000 km is a long way to go!

Here are some snippets from Olivier’s trip so far … 

Good luck Olivier! We cannot wait to see more!
