SURPRISES IN CHINA | A TREK ALONG THE GREAT WALL
December 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm GMT
What is a purple event?
During lockdown and for the rest of the year, Adventure Geek is hosting a series of intersting talks every Wednesday night at 7pm. In the last few weeks we have heard all about a trip to Antarctica on a 100 year old tall boat, Mark gave a talk on well-being and mental health, and then last week was Hayley Hanwell-Holland who presented the myths of meditation.

This week we have the lovely Lynne Rose, from Sailsbury in the UK who is going to be sharing her story with us about a life changing trip along the Great Wall of China.
In Lynne's words:
China was the furthest I had ever travelled and amongst the excitement and trepidation I had a few preconceived ideas of what I would find when I arrived. China surprised me, and my experience was one I will never forget; an experience I shared with 48 other people who have now become my trekking family.
The trek was challenging in all sorts of ways, physically and mentally, but the team spirit carried us all through along with the support of the brilliant Discover Adventure team – we had an amazing time and between us have raised over £100K for Stars Appeal – Salisbury District Hospital's Charity.
