What do trails mean to you?

Trails are pathways we create or follow, that connect us to nature, they heal our souls and offer a foundation to build meaningful relationships and memories.

Whats your favourite nature getaway? I have so many but if I have to pick one, it would be the Cederberg, it is incredibly beautiful and wild.

Which 3 items are always in your backpack on a trail? Waterproof shell, buff and a space blanket.

Favourite trail snack? Coffee and a weakness for biscuits.

Best time of the day? sunrise

Most memorable adventure? Hiking across Totori Japan, part of the World Trails Network expedition to write a trail sustainability manifesto.

What do trails mean to you?

Freedom, exploring, connection (with yourself, and your companions), stillness

Whats your avourite nature getaway. – The Cederberg! It’s been a favourite spot since childhood

Which 3 items are always in your backpack on a trail – A buff (it has so many uses, and has even been used as a coffee strainer when we forgot the essential tools…), a cap, snacks

Favourite trail snack – coffee & rusks, dried mango

Best time of the day – sunrise coffee on a trail! Although, I also love a sunset G&T…

Most memorable adventure?

In October 2018, I participated in a life-changing event called the Serengeti Girls Run. 9 Women from across the globe came together to do a 3-day, 90km run across the iconic Serengeti Plains. The purpose: to raise funds and create awareness for the Girl Empowerment Project, focussed on opportunities for girls and women to become leaders in conservation. It was exhilarating (running through the wild, with part of the migration crossing around us and never knowing where the predators might be waiting), tough (physically and mentally, it was very challenging), beyond amazing (the group of women have become very special people in my life after sharing such a special experience) and will forever remain a lifetime highlight!
