Active Adventures Travel Specialist
Miriam, or 'Miri' as she likes to be called is a Kiwi gal and has experienced the broad spectrum of life in New Zealand, from time living in the Chatham Islands to a stint in the capital city, Wellington, to the southern 'Scarfy' town of Dunedin, where she completed her bachelor of Physical Education. After studying she moved inland to Queenstown and guided on the Routeburn Track for three seasons, before relocating across the ditch to Australia with her now hubby, Mark. Miri and Mark spent five years in Australia saving money for travel and a house back home. In between coaching others on their gym technique, running gym classes, health promotions and sports events Miri trained for triathlons and kept fit ready to tackle the trail running races back in New Zealand. Now that she's back home in Queenstown, the adventure capital of world and the Active HQ, she plans to compete in a few races, so watch this space!
Miri is not just a New Zealand expert, she's also spent a fair chunk of time travelling in Nepal as well as in Central and South America - perfect really, considering where we run our trips! Her travel highlights include all the hikes as well as a stint working in a Wildlife Park in Bolivia. Whether it's hiking or running on backcountry trails, mountain biking Queenstown's burgeoning single tracks or rafting and kayaking the local rivers, Miri loves it all and is keen to swap adventure tales!
