The highs, lows, and the bliss of the unknown - WHOA Peruvian Adventure 2016
It was the end of a long day of hiking in the Andes and our group was physically exhausted, yet surprisingly energetic after our first day on the trails. Eleven hours of overcoming the altitude and engaging with strangers may seem tiring, but it was the never-ending support from a group of twelve incredible women and the desire to conquer the unknown that kept us moving forward, one foot in front of the other, until we reached our destination.
WE GET THIS QUESTION A LOT, SO WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE WITH YOU...
