Training Walks for Everest on the Lovelly World Tour 2014

In 2015, I will be taking on the challenge of climbing to Mt Everest Base Camp with World Vision Australia.

As I’m currently travelling around the world for 4 months, I’ve decided to start my training ASAP. My goal is to do at least one training walk of 1+ hours (preferably 2-3 hours) in each new city I visit. This means I should get in one walk a week for the 16 weeks I’m away.

I’ve managed to hit my target so far and here are some summary shots from my walks. I’ll also be adding a post on each of the walks! Loving the exercise and the exploring.
