Trekking in Peru - an amazing experience

I trekked in Peru in memory of my beautiful daughter, killed aged just 16 in a road crash. I raised over $5,000 for Brake.

I had a really fantastic time - it was better than I hoped and all the training I had undertaken really paid off because it was a lot harder than I thought - but I kept up well. The altitude was the main problem for everyone but I was lucky that I didn't feel too bad.

Peru itself is an amazing, beautiful country and I'm so lucky that i have had the chance to go there. It was very hard going but reaching the top of the mountains but was well worth it.

If anyone was thinking of doing this trek I would recomcend it 100%. The buzz and sense of achievement over-rides the homesick and the altitude sickness.

The group I were with were great and we all supported each other – and we're all having a reunion soon, so I've made friends for life. We are all missing Peru and so are going to a Peruvian Resturant!
