My (Life) Journey

My (Life) Journey

In January 2018 I made the decision to walk the entire length of the Bibbulmun Track. The track is 1000 km’s long and stretches from Perth to the south west coastal town of Albany in Western Australia. It has been described as one of the worlds greatest long distance walks and passes through incredible scenery in one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world. 

Well things haven’t exactly gone to plan and I am pregnant! I planned to walk the track in October but I will be 8 months pregnant, so not something I can realistically do! I will do it one day, I am just not sure when.

This is a new journey for me now, one that will involve a baby! It wont change my love for nature and exploring. Follow my journey becoming a new mum and taking my bub on heaps of adventures
