When you’re planning to take on a trek to base camp of the biggest mountain in the world, the preparations can become somewhat busy. Not only is there packing and last minute shopping, there’s training, business planning and some time allowed for mild panic attacks.
Jokes. No real freak outs! Just some emotional hugs with my family and some reality checks of this is kinda something huge I’m taking on!!
I’m proud to be taking this on with World Vision Australia and Inspired Adventures. I’ve fundraised now $4117 and couldn’t have done this without the help of my friends, family and social media network. Take a look at the page and feel free to boost our teams already amazing target, more than $83,000! Wow!
This week, I’m making sure to take time out to rest though. It’s important. Although I have lots to do and want to be as prepared as possible, rest is also important. Stress and getting overly excited before this huge adventure will not help. So in making sure to get lots of sleep and trying to back off from duties, social engagements and any unnecessary work.
I’m also going to be the tour leader on this trip. A huge honour as World Vision are one of the charities closest to my heart and it’s such an amazing team. I’ll be leading a group of 20 in Nepal. The local guides will show us around and take us on the route to base camp. My job – to make sure everyone has the best trip EVEREST.
