Thank you to The Champions

Welcome to the page where the support crew and champions of this story of adventure and charity are acknowledged. Thank you.

My Warriors and Mentors – the women who I look up to and learn from. I’ve written this poem for you because sharing your voices, your essence, that matters.

She unravels in the storm
Hungry for humility
A pause to feel

Lost in her secret world
Steadied by strength
Warmed by colours

She hears their voices
Their essence is shared
Again she sails

Steered by the winds of meaning
A love affair with life
Her voice returning

None of us get anywhere alone. Even though for me I LOVE alone I am graced to have you whispering in my life. Thank you.

For me Instagram started as inspiration, it then became about creativity but overwhelmingly it has been about connection. I have met people from all over the world, talk to them offline and have met up with then over food and great conversation.  Weekly, there’s a story of kindness that I could share with you about this little online space. Recently I ‘met’ Ley. Instantly we bonded over hiking and travel stories. I love her travel style. I was completely overwhelmed was she donated to my fundraiser page. Ley – thank you for contributing to One Girl and their education revolution.

Some thank yous are hard to write. They take a little longer because you need to get the words right. I met my friend Lisa way back in 2015 when I dipped my toe in the blogging world. Three blogs later, so many adventurous journeys and we’re still learning from and supporting each other. Lisa has become a true friend and one that I have travelled a great many miles with – even though many miles seperate us. Thanks for being there Lisa. I’ll dedicate a leg of the Camino to you. Oh wait, dedicated legs…I just came up with an idea! See you’re inspiring me even when I write you a thank you.

Katy from Salomon is a champion of this Camino Trek for One Girl story. On behalf of Salomon she said yes to sponsoring my shoes for the hike. Thank you Salomon for being in my support crew. I’m glad you’re part of the foundations. I will now donate the money I would have spent on shoes to my One Girl fundraiser and we’ll be close to getting two girls educated next year.

Erin dreaming of Almonds – You are incredible and so are you Sarah Red Ladybird Wellness. Prolific writers of honest thoughts with hearts and words that that remind me of all that’s important. Beautiful friends. So glad to be in the world with you two blowing the dandelion seeds to the wind. xx

Paula the Pilgrim – Wow. Thank you so much for your contribution. I am so grateful for your support. Your words during my trip are some of the comments that I hold the closest. As a seasoned camino walker you have so much wisdom. I’m so looking forward to interviewing you for this journal and sharing your thoughts more widely. xx

Alexandra and Ricardo of Camping Trevélez. My first sponsorship ‘no’ gave me a wonderful way to write a beautiful story of our time staying at your camping village. Thank you for your kind email and facebook post.  I have printed that email to go next to the ‘no’ emails, with lovely words from people like you behind me I’m already winning.  We will definitely see you again. xx

Kimberly Day – Thank you for your generous donation! You are amazing. One girl’s life will change because of you I am really give this my heart. x x

My Family – Greg, Tommy, Zoë, Lucas and Jimmy because when I said I am going to do this and it’ll take 35 days all you did was get excited for me and One Girl. My husband last week announced he’d take a month of holiday to hold down the fort so that I wouldn’t have to take this trek over 4 trips. I am so glad we walk this ‘Camino’ of life together. xx

A commitment to kindness, adventure, travel and charity
