Ally & Isabella
Isabella & I had a great time on our walk. The terrain was probably a little more challenging than expected giving us some decent blisters 🙂 but all is all it was a positive experience. Most importantly for us, we used this as a fundraising event for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and we raised over $5,500 which helped us keep going when we were feeling a little tired and sore!
The itinerary was wonderful. We ran into many other people who had dramas re their accommodation, or pick up/drop off etc as they tried to do this independently. It made us very pleased to be walking with Walk 91! All of the accommodation providers went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable.All accommodation was very suitable and would stay in any of them again. Terrain was difficult… it did not challenge our fitness but we struggled at times with sore feet & knees. The only thing extra we could have done to prepare was probably some soft sand trekking.
The track was very well signed until the last day. We definitely benefited from getting fit prior to the walk. Make sure you wear in your walking shoes. We took fairly well worn in hiking boots, however after the first day we ended up resorting to our sneakers as we felt these were more comfortable… so I guess take spare shoes just in case.
Thank you for your assistance.
