While we were at the shopping centre, Mum had me try on a backpack. But not just any backpack is was one of those really big trekking backpacks. Like this:
It's not that big, for most people, but I am not the biggest person in the world. As part of the World Challenge Program we have to go on a trek, so there I will be in the wilderness of Vietnam, carrying this big, heavy backpack.
I'm still really exited though, a couple of my friends are going too, so it shall be a big, fun adventure.
Yesterday I was having a look at a stack at travel books on Vietnam. I'm not so sure about some of the food though. Eating snake and dog doesn't really appeal.
I can't believe that it still a year and a half away, but I'm glad because it gives me more time to raise the money!!
