We are off to The Great Wall of ChinaAugust 21st, 2019
Last September saw myself, Adrian and Stuart trek up Kilimanjaro (I say trek, I actually mean climb!). Whilst it was a truly amazing experience, a once in a lifetime, tick off the bucket list experience, I promised myself I would never do anything physically that difficult again.
I honestly loved every minute, our trek group were fantastic, our tour/trek leader was superb and I can’t stress enough how brilliant the climbers, helpers and people on Kilimanjaro were.
Anyway, back to my subject line… An email popped in my inbox this May from a colleague, Clare, she wrote 3 words; What ya saying?
She had forwarded a link to the Dream Challenges web page for Great Wall of China Trek 2020. That was it, hook line and sinker, just one glance and I’m sucked in to this wonderful opportunity.
I love travelling, exploring and doing something off the normal tick list. To me, to go to China is the biggest pull, the fact that I have to trek miles is minor – surely after Kilimanjaro this is going to be a walk in the park!
I show the email to Rhianne sitting next to me, she’s also an adventurer and wants in. I forward to email to Adrian, who I know was looking for his next challenge, he bites within the hour and we have a team….
That’s it! We’re off in September 2020, five ADSI staff so far – Adrian, Jon, Clare, Rhianne and myself Sue – trekking the Great Wall of China. We will be raising money for our chosen charity again – so watch this space!
