Just finished some trekking in Sapa, Vietnam - just near the border with China. The local women with us are from a community of people who were originally from Mongolia. They were amazing ... they gave me my bamboo walking stick and helped me clamber down wet, slippy rocks without killing myself. Of course, my North Face Trek shoes being put to total shame by a pair of £3 wellies. #vietnam#sapa#trekking#vegatravel
It really doesn't matter that I had to wake up at 3:30am.
It really doesn't matter that I had to climb up a peak for two hours.
It really doesn't matter I was that exhausted that I couldn't even talk or eat at the same time I walked.
It really doesn't matter that I was at 5.500m altitude and it was around -10 celsius degrees.
When I check my pics and find truly happy faces like this one...I know I was doing what I love!!⛰⛰⛰
