It’s been awhile since my last blog. Just over a year! My last blog was on the final day of the On a Wing & a Chair Around Australia Flight.
It took me a couple of months to recover physically and mentally from the gruelling 38 days. Although it was extremely tough, it was an experience of a lifetime. Some of the most memorable times were meeting great characters along the way and receiving messages of support from those who followed.
I had been working on the flight for six years, so when it was completed, it was very strange to not have to think about it. I must admit, I felt a little lost at times!
This year has been very busy, changing roles at work, attending events, talks, developing a new website (hope you like it) and thinking about “What’s next?”
Well, with a hankering need for a small project to work on (I get a little bored), I purchased a kayak and recently completed the modifications that allow me to paddle it independently. I have some ideas for upcoming paddling adventures down a few rivers but that will have to wait until it warms up. Any kayakers out there who are looking for an adventure, let me know!
“Adventure” runs in the blood, a year since the last one, it’s time to do another! The “4 Desert Run”, a new flying trip begins on 2nd June 2014! Check out the route:
It’s going to be a very challenging but exciting adventure; crossing 4 major deserts and we’ll get the opportunity to explore Lake Eyre, Uluru and the Kimberleys. Stay tuned – the next blog will have more details.
