Laura Waddell on why she loves to hike alone

and what she's learnt on Australia's walking trails

A recent ABC News story about Laura Waddell on why she ‘loves to hike alone and what she’s learnt on Australia’s walking trails’

Laura says hiking lets her explore “incredible new places” she wouldn’t see any other way, and doing it alone allows her to be “completely selfish” with her time.

Solo hiking means you can pick the pace, the distance and “camp up all day and relax and read a book” whenever you want.
