Never in my wildest dreams had I thought I would live in the mountains. I'd suffocate if I moved away from the ocean. I remember having this thought many times. But now I know, just like the ocean, the mountains too have a special vibe.
Cambodia has always been high on my travel list. So you can imagine how excited I was when the contract for my most recent expedition came through earlier this year. The training weekend for the trip fell on the same weekend as my tryouts for Team Australia Roller Derby. But as I've said many times before, divine timing is everything, things always turn out as they are meant too in the end.
A friend of mine looked me dead in the eyes and said: "You have the most amazing life." I froze as my eyes glassed over with tears and my face started to burn. "Every time I see what you're doing your adventuring somewhere new, climbing mountains, jumping off waterfalls or hanging out at the beach." Still frozen as the lump in my throat almost blocked off my airways. I had no response....she was absolutely right.
