#TravelTimehop series edition #6 with Cosmochicklitan

Welcome to another Travel Timehop and another great memory from the adventures of a fellow blogger.

This week my guest poster is Heidi from Cosmochicklitan – a book obsessed mum to a lovely little girl not too dissimilar in age to my own Tin Box Tot. I’ve followed her family adventures through the #MyCapturedMoment blog link up and I was really pleased when she agreed to take part in this series. Her Timehop is brilliant. Enjoy!

When are we time-hopping to?


Where in the world?

Tongariro National Park, New Zealand

Cosmochicklitan’s Travel Timehop moment

My husband took this picture after our 8 hour mountain crossing (ok, by that point I was showered and changed already – no one wants to see the picture of me straight after the hike…). By the time we arrived at Tongariro National Park, we had already travelled quite a bit and just wanted to relax for a few days.

However, the owner of the lodge we were staying in convinced us to partake in the mountain hike. I am so glad we took his advice. Although it was another 5am start and the hike wasn’t easy (I am probably the most unfit person), it really was worth it!! The views were stunning. We walked through volcanic rock, snow and forests.

At the end of the hike there was an assembly point where people would wait to be picked up by coaches (after all, we were in the middle of nowhere). The atmosphere there was absolutely electric. Walkers who had finished already were cheering everyone else, who made it across the finish line, on. There was a lot of clapping and high-fiving between complete strangers – an experience never to be forgotten!

Thank you so much to Heidi for sharing this fantastic moment with me. You can follow the rest of her adventures on her blog, on Twitter and Instagram.

If you’ve been inspired to dig out your old holiday snaps I’d love it if you’d share one with me. Here’s how to take part in #TravelTimehop.
