Debby was at a crossroad in life. She asked herself a few questions.

I was coming to a crossroad in my life.

What did I see my future being?

Did I want to keep working?

Was I going to relocate?

What were my priorities in life?

I had been a working Mum with 3 children when suddenly the last child was finishing Year 12.

Living in a small North Queensland Country Town meant that my children had all moved away to further their studies and pursue their careers.

My husband worked away a lot and with most of my family living in South East Queensland, the hard questions needed to be addressed.

At the same time I saw on Facebook, the Women’s Fitness Adventures Cinque Terre Fitness Adventure.

It piqued my interest. What a fun way to celebrate the start of the next chapter in my life. Travelling and hiking somewhere wonderful with a group of ladies . WOW what a great concept!

I talked it over with friends but couldn’t get anyone else interested so finally decided to “bite the bullet” and sign up all by myself.

My first Multi Day Hike to the 6 Foot Track in New South Wales had me hooked.

I loved every minute.

The supportive, approachable and knowledgeable leaders make you feel immediately at ease

It was the best decision…EVER.
