Update time :)

Okay so I’ve been a little absent from this here blog as I’ve been super busy. What have I been up to you may ask well;
– I have had most of the inoculations required for the trip so far; hepatitis A and B, Yellow fever, Rabies, Typhoid and Malaria tablets prescribed or injected.
– I have now closed my JustGiving page as the total amount raised was £100 higher than my goal, thank you everyone who donated by the way you really have made this once in a life time trip possible for me.
– I have been very busy working at least 12 hours a day 5 days a week in a local ice cream parlour.
– Slowly collecting all the kit needed for this trip. So far I have anti mosquito wrist bands, a self inflating camp mat, sleeping bag, camel sack and day bag. Anti mosquito unzipable trouser/shorts, walking boots x2 and water steriliser. Still need to sort out spending money and other clothes I think but getting there now.
– I have booked my travel by coach to London Heathrow Airport there and back. Just 2 weeks to go now. EXCITED 😀

£80 to go now and extension trips

Hey long time no speak, I’m now back home and got a summer job to pay for my extension trips on the Inca trek. I am working at an ice cream shop at the moment 5 days a week to earn the £875 I need for the extension trips. The ones I have chosen are the Amazon river and jungle trek, the Nazca Lines and Hucachina.
You can help me to get the final £80 by donating to http://justgiving.co.uk/laura-willows
