Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year 2016 Image
Happy New Year 2016

Hope everybody had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Have a fantastic 2016 and do amazing things.

Thanks so much to everybody who has supported me with my Leukaemia Foundation Trek The Inca Trail in May of 2016.

It’s now only 4 month’s until the Trek to Machu Picchu starts and I have been training and fundraising madly.

Our sausage sizzle at Westfield Fountain Gate on the 12th December 2015 was a success with us raising over $220 for the Leukaemia Foundation which brings me over the $1,000 dollar mark so far.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped by assisting at the fundraisers on donating their money towards this great cause.

I’ll be making another post soon with further information about my fundraising activities.


Should I Climb Machu Picchu’s Huayna Picchu Mountain?

So I have been looking further into my trip to Peru in 2016, and I have read a lot of reviews online which highly recommend climbing Huayna Picchu while in Machu Picchu.

First thing to know, is that i’m not all that good with heights. In fact I would say I border quite close to being very much afraid of them.

But try as I might, I can’t get the thought out of my head. I think I really want to do this, just to prove to myself that yes, you can do it.

Some of the pictures floating about on other hikers blogs are just amazing.

I even found this two part video on YouTube, which shows the entire ascent and descent on video.

I have talked myself into it, I’m going to do it. Wish me luck!

If you have any comments or advice, i’m all ears 🙂
