"NOT ALL THAT WANDER ARE LOST"

Hello!! I'm Chris Long from Gorge River, New Zealand. I grew up in a very remote part of the South Island 2 days walk from the nearest road. In the past 6 years I've adventured to over 55 countries on 6 continents and from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Its become my lifestyle choice, and to go with that comes "Footsteps of a Wildkiwi," a place to show my photos, tell my experiences and entertain and inspire the sense of adventure in you!!
