March 2021 marked my entry into Off The Beaten Track’s thrilling world! It all began with a spectacular Swan River kayak tour, a gift from a friend, sparking my interest. Nervous but curious, I ventured on my first twilight hike with a friend, only to find solo hikes equally enchanting with delightful encounters each time. Joining as a volunteer guide felt like a dream come true—spreading the joy of OTBT, bonding with like-minded souls, and empowering hesitant hikers. I now try to hike every weekend as it is my happy place!
This year’s big challenge? Conquering half the Bibbulmun Track! OTBT’s unwavering support fuels my ambition, making this audacious dream a reality. Beyond trails, OTBT embodies a community where my spirit thrives, friendships blossom, and personal growth blooms with each step amidst Australia’s mesmerizing landscapes.
