Welcome to my little blog about my NZ and mostly TA experience! 🙂
My name is Veronika Lásková and I’m a 28 year old bioinformatician from the Czech republic (or newly Czechia – still not over that change), my last name means Love (yup, very proud of it). Born and raised in Ivaň (a teeny tiny village in South Moravia), I lived in Brno for the last 3 years until I got my WHS visa this year.
I’m not crazy experienced when it comes to adventures like TA, so it’s a proper challenge for me, but I’m up for it. I mostly do one day hikes, except for my younger days when I went to a “summer camp” which was a two week trip, one week on foot, one week canoeing (does that count as preparation for Whanganui river even though it was 12 years ago?).
After TA I’m staying in NZ for some season work (most likely), taking a break from my usual routine and science environment. If there’s anything interesting to report, I’ll also write about that.
So if you’re interested in my journey, notes for future thru-hikers and anything that might come to my mind, you’re in the right place.
