The truth is I needed this on so many levels. It started with the strongest internal command to shake myself up. After an enquiry about the trek that came up on my feed, I was set to trial a few tracks with Peter Ryan from Wild Trek Tours just on 5 weeks out (not the recommended preparation). A few more later, then this happened.

Thanks Pete for your generosity and inspiration. Your calm, no BS approach on the trek got us there in conditions that were testing at times. I loved hearing about your Dad’s service there. I felt the significance throughout.

The other special experience was sharing time with the locals and grounding safely in each of the villages. The stories they shared I was so grateful for. What a beautiful reminder they brought to my world.

As for this girl, she got her groove back. The dedication on the trek, the focus needed, environment and call out to myself was a recipe for #groveback. Can’t wait for the next chapter.

Thanks again Pete. What a phenomenal experience! So grateful for you and your safe guidance and trust in our capability.

Forever grateful.
