The Longest Walk

 The Longest Walk

This story is about the Rapsey family, hiking through the longest path, Te Araroa, and reaching the end of the trail. 

This family came from the home of the Otago University, Dunedin, and went all the way to Cape Reinga, and walked through the long trail, and travelled across and reached the end of the South Island, Bluff. 

The Rapsey family passed through boulders, mountains, big trees and alot of nature. It took the family over 5 months to reach Bluff. They slept under huts that they built, stayed under tents in forests, and at camping grounds.

I think that this family is very brave, determined and adventurous. They walked from the top of NZ to the bottom and with nothing but determination and fun, at the end they achieved their goal.
