Donna shared an amazing story about the impact this adventure had on her life, in the wake of surviving breast cancer. She wrote:
Hiking through the ancient ruins, I felt surrounded by the ancestors and it was very comforting. I felt that something was happening to my soul. As we visited the weavers way up in the Andes, I felt a strong connection to community and history.
Once the hiking started on the actual Inka Trail, I felt this power literally start to surge through my body. Each day I got stronger and stronger, even with less sleep. I realized that I also needed to meditate and have quiet time on the trail because there was healing happening beyond what I had any idea I needed. Even the challenge of hiking up to nearly 14,000 feet on the second day of the hike brought a feeling of contentment and deep peace. Sitting on the peak with all of the other women, knowing we made it, was such a powerful experience.
The strength I gathered from Inka Trail has sustained me through many months of medical tests, doctors, and uncertainty. Another thing is that for a woman over 50, I wanted to be an example that no matter what it’s time to keep going. By trying new things and pushing myself.
This trip filled me with joy in my heart and a readiness for more adventure.
