              • Tramp: England and Scotland

                tramp - noun: hiker; a foot traveler; someone who goes on an extended walk This video documents a 2.5 month solo camping trip I made to Europe in 2008, visiting England and Scotland, Norway, Slovakia, Romania, and Turkey. Instead of staying in the cities and typical tourist spots, I wanted to see the country and the people who live there. I decided that the best way to do that was to go on foot, hiking and camping everywhere I went. I carried everything with me including my tent, sleeping bag, stove and cook set, and a few days supply of food. On many hikes I found myself totally alone in the mountains far from any roads or people. Sometimes it would get lonely or frustrating, especially when the weather got really bad or things broke down, but it was always worth it at the end of the trail. This video shows my trip in England and Scotland where I did the majority of my hiking and spent the most time. I am working on the other parts of the video right now. Thanks for watching! www.paullapides.com

                  • Tramping and packrafting New Zealand's South Island

                    Impressions from a three-month trip to New Zealand’s South Island, including a 64-day – almost –tramping and packrafting traverse of the Southern Alps. More info below. Music: Mudflow – Sense of Me In austral summer 2014-2015, I travelled to New Zealand’s South Island for 3-months. I first made a 3-week road trip with Elien, during we did several overnight tramping and packrafting trips, notably in the Glenorchy en Wanaka regions. Just after New Year, we started a 64-day traverse of the entire South Island at Ship’s Cove in the Queen Charlotte Sounds. From the Richmond Range on, I covered almost the entire traverse solo. The Te Araroa trail was my guide all the way to Otira. Subsequently, I started following a more challenging route through the hearth of the Southern Alps, including packrafting sections on the Rangitata, Tasman, Dobson, Ahuriri, Dingle Burn, Makarora, Dart and Waiau Rivers and across Lake Pukaki, Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka, numerous high passes, and a few 2000+ peaks including the Kaimakamaka Peaks (2431m) and Dragonfly Peak (2165m). I was blessed with outstanding weather conditions during most of the traverse, but an episode with important precipitation along the Main Divide and fresh snow higher in the mountains made me decide to hitch the section from the base of the Hokitika Canyon to Erewhon Station in the upper Rangitata – fording the Rakaia down Whitcombe Saddle would have been too dangerous in such conditions. I also hitched short road sections after that. The trailer contains video from both the road trip and the thru-hike. All video was recorded with a GoPro Hero3 White Edition Sports Camera, and an Olympus PEN EP-L3 camera with an M. Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm F4-5.6 lens. All individual video fragments are unprocessed. More info on my trip itinerary, packing list, … can be found on my blog: willemvandoorne.wordpress.com. A brief trip report with images will be published throughout spring and summer 2015.
