It all started in a pub – like these things often do. Sitting with a group of work colleagues, we talked about doing something adventurous together, like a trekking challenge, like going on the Great Wall of China.
After scouting around on the internet we came up with, what seemed to be, the best option. An all-in trip to the Wall, walking for 6 days and a visit to Beijing at the end.
So that’s how I found myself sitting at the airport, stomach churning, no idea what was ahead and no idea how I would fare.
