Kaelyn Kingi AKA @misswalkalot started walking after Covid-19. She found that she was sick of being “stuck” indoors all the time and decided that walking was something she wanted to do more. Kaelyn shares the Māori concept of te whare tapa whā and the importance of caring for your physical, mental, spiritual and social wellbeing. She found that walking helped her connect with all of these and she found a safe haven in the outdoors. Kaelyn talks about kaitiakitanga and the part that everyone can play in doing better when we’re exploring the outdoors, from cleaning boots at kauri dieback stations to picking up rubbish on the trails. She’s walked over a hundred different tracks around Aotearoa in the last year, but often finds herself returning to some of the same places where she has a spiritual connection.
