Kat Davis

Originally from Melbourne, after graduating from university, Kat moved to Japan. Working as an adventure tour guide in Japan helped Kat develop her skills to seek out the local hotspots and also develop a love for hiking. From Japan to Canada to London, she quit her office job in 2013 to walk the Camino de Santiago and never looked back. She completed seven Caminos and walked over 10,000km in Spain, Portugal, England, Italy, Japan and America, including the 4240km Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada.
Sadly Kat's life was cut short in early 2020. She is fondly remembered for her meticulous work, inspiration and energy.
