It was the best week of my life.
Thank you for the opportunity Tony Trust gave me in going on my trip. It was the best week of my life. I've made friends I still keep in touch with and we might even have a meet up. We didn't manage to take many action shots as we weren't really allowed phones but I managed to get some views. That's me juggling oranges.
The funniest moment was probably when we were hiking to the little hut in Snowdonia and we all had to sleep on the floor snuggled up in our sleeping bags and someone farted.
What was the scariest or most daring moment? I think for me the scariest moment was sleeping overnight in the wild. I don't really like camping and sleeping out in the mountains was really scary.
Do you feel you can do more than you thought possible? Definitely. It's by far the hardest thing I've ever had to do. We hiked non stop for 4 hours with 30kg on our backs. I thought I wouldn't be able to do it but I was really proud of myself.
Did you have lots of problems to solve and was it fun? We didn't really have many problems, more just trying to stay motivated to keep going. It was really hard on the second day of the hike and we were all really tired and trying to keep each other motivated.
What challenged you the most and how do you feel about the achievement? Probably the hike. I feel really proud. I didn't think I could do it. Someone dropped out and it made me sad but also more proud of myself that I stuck with it.
What is going to be your lasting memory? When we came back from the first overnight hike, we got to go sea kayaking. It was the first day that we finally got some clouds and rain. It was blazing heat, nothing like they'd ever experienced before in Wales. We were in the middle of the bay and it started raining. It felt like I was in a movie. It was amazing. I really loved it and I feel like I'll never forget that part. Thank you again for helping me go. I am so so grateful for the funding and I am so excited for any other kids that get to go. I am already saving to go back next year. Alicia
