Welcome to bushnuts

Welcome! We’re a pair of young hiking enthusiasts – ‘bush nuts’ – from Australia.

This blog was started in May 2018, when Callum and I embarked on our first long-distance hike, the Via Dinarica, and decided to document the journey by writing a daily blog. 1500 km and 66 days later, we arrived in northern Albania with thousands of photos and words. Knowing that there were few resources for future Via Dinarica hikers, we hoped that our blog could give people a sense for what the walk was like. It was such a beautiful region to experience on the ground, day after day, mountain after moutain.

We hope one day to expand on this blog and add in some new walks.

Until then, enjoy the ride along the Dinarican spine – we certainly did!
