When I set out on a seven-day hike with Gabrielle, I didn’t know that I could walk that far, carrying that much food. But quickly I was put at ease. Gabrielle let me move at my own pace, and gave me little tips which made the walking flow.

Soon I had forgotten that tramping might be a struggle – instead my body found its own rhythm and my mind was freer than ever, simply observing and enjoying the huge, spectacular, ever-changing land. Gabrielle taught me to cross rivers safely too.

We had quiet times and uproarious laughter, stories by firelight, and some very fine midday dozing in beautiful lunch spots. Walking with Gabrielle was huge fun and it has expanded my comfort zone forever. I’m free to roam!
