In just under an hour's time, Louise will be flying out of Heathrow on her second marathon trek to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. She is off to Jordan to "trek across the traditional Bedouin trails, experiencing spectacular desert landscapes, towering sandstone canyons, and breathtaking views across the Wadi Araba Mountains.
After six days exploring the unspoiled wilderness and archaeological treasures of Jordan, she will arrive at the spectacular ‘lost city’ of Petra, hewn from the rocks over 2000 years ago. This fascinating trek promises to be a physically challenging and hugely rewarding experience. Not only will it provide unforgettable memories and a great bunch of new friends, it will make a huge difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.".
This is the description of her journey, as taken from the Macmillan website!! I'm not so sure she will find it quite as enjoyable as described what with the sand, heat and endless walking - lol. However, I am very proud of her (once again) for doing this and like the soppy Mum that I am, miss her already!!
On a sadder note, it was Jazz who suggested Louise signs up for this one, which she did, little knowing that she would be doing it in memory of her. I just want to say good luck Louise - you are an amazing lady and I am so proud to call you Daughter. See you in ten days time.
