#MoffOnAMission The Great (Wall) Adventure

Posted by Holly Moffitt on 30 Oct 2019, 10:48:43

Hi guys, Holly here. Back from my first ever DA overseas challenge. 

It was an experience with many firsts. A first time for setting my feet in the captivating land of China. A first for trekking six days in a row. A first for eating porridge with chopsticks. The list goes on.

You may have seen the numerous updates whenever I was able to post back and beat China's social media restrictions, but here's the lowdown on what has to be my most amazing adventure yet. Prepare for tales of (chocolate-based) tragedy, perseverance and only the best/bad jokes that we deliriously laughed to as we shimmied, climbed, hiked across the Wall that I can now personally confirm is Great. Really, really great. Ready?

Your 2021 Adventure

2021 we hear you mutter. It might seem like a long way off but think about just how fast this year has flown by, and you'll know all too well that 2021 will be upon us soon enough. And when it comes to planning a once-in-a-lifetime adventure of DA scale, you'll want plenty of time to get in gear.

From perusing the kit list to deciding where to buy, never mind getting it out on the ground tried and tested during hours of crucial training. And that's just one part of the pre-challenge journey. You'll be glad to have as much training time as possible so that you're fighting fit and raring to go but also feeling confident to face the challenge ahead.
