'aint no mountain high enough...


(A few of the gang at Bexley wing at Jimmy's before we set off)

We've had a fab adventure! 
seen some amazing things and been lucky enough to meet some incredibly lovely inspirational people,
so,
go put the kettle on, make yourself comfy as I show you a few snaps and hope it gives you a feel of the trek......

lava action on Stromboli


we ate fresh figs that grew on the volcano, they were gorgeous!
The soil is very fertile because of all the minerals from the volcanic rock


Stromboli



Etna

back home at 3am to a gorgeous welcome!
wow, 
pinch me, did it really happen?

I feel so lucky and privileged to have been a part of this trek,
to say what I was doing last year, what a contrast!
and a fab one,
life's good,
one life live it was the moto of some fellow trekkers,
too right!
sign me up for the next challenge!
