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?
At the start of the year, Discover Adventure ran its' first ever competition with an almighty prize up for grabs: along with a whole stash of DA goodies and a £100 Cotswolds voucher, we gave away a space on our Great Wall of China trek.
We spoke to Steve Boryszczuk, a Discover Adventure participant that caught our eye for all the right reasons. Steve has now completed six challenges with us, and is due to complete his seventh. Other than being an adrenaline-seeking adventurer, we wondered what had inspired him to embark on six of our challenges over the years. When we heard his inspiring and poignant story that led him to take on these worldly experiences, we just had to share it with our fellow adventurers.
