As I write this latest instalment of the #PrepForPeru blog, I’m beginning to feel the excitement. There was a point recently when the trip to Machu Picchu was in doubt due to low numbers. This went further into doubt when two people dropped out at the last minute – well actually it was after the deadline but we’ll not get into the nitty gritty now. I started to worry that all my training, all my fundraising and preparation would be in vain and I wouldn’t be heading to Peru with over £4,000 raised for charity – notably for Mental Health Foundation
However the news came through that although there had been
dropouts, they were still going to go ahead with the trip. This left me in jubilation
that I could follow through with what I said I would do, it meant I wasn’t
letting anyone else down and I wasn’t letting myself down.
