As part of its Lifestyle Series, The Fry Group was pleased to partner with Lightfoot Travel and Tourism New Zealand recently, for an Evening of Adventure.
Guests gathered at Lot88 Gallery where the adventurer and motivational speaker, Grant Rawlinson, shared stories and captivating anecdotes of his journeys across the world, including numerous expeditions in his native New Zealand. He recalled his adventures summiting Fantham’s Peak and being the first person ever, to traverse from the summit of Mt Ruapehu to the summit of Aoraki Mt Cook completely by human power and in one continuous trip. This journey alone involved unsupported ascents of both mountains, a 245km inflatable kayak descent of the Whanganui river, a 70km sea-kayak crossing of the Cook Strait and over 1000km of cycling.
As well as hearing Grant’s thrilling tales, guests were treated to delicious food and wine from New Zealand and vodka cocktails by Jiu Jiu Vodka. Some also experienced New Zealand in Virtual Reality to get a true sense of its splendor without leaving the room.
