One adventurous mum and one sunny kid on a quest to hike the globe together.
It was not a new years resolution, to hike the globe, more of a new years wish – to spend more time in the mountains. Enjoying peace and freedom, feeling the winds, smelling the high mountain air and feel our bodies be alive and connected to the nature. We love adventures and especially my 7 year old Sunny kid thrives on challenges. She is a born adventurer and already an experienced hiker and mountaineer.
We will hike 46.000 altitude meters (150918.6352 feet ) this year. Counting the going up part, from start of the walk, to the highest point reached. We will only count different peaks, huts or places or at least use different approach if the same destination. Kind of like climbing Mt. Everest. Five times. Starting from the sea level. Our goal is to do as much as we can in Slovenia till the end of June, but a true wish is to hike the globe. YES! Would absolutely love to add altitude meters from other countries and continents. Plans are big and high. But we need help to financially cover the expenses of travel and gear. On our current list of countries to hike and climb are: Bulgaria ( including the highest peak of Balkans - Musala peak ) , Romania, Greece, Spain and France. In the fall the plan is to return to beloved Nepal and do the Annapurna circuit and/or Everest base camp trek. If our fundraising campaign will be successful we will be coming back to Slovenia in beginning of December with 46.000 altitude meters in our pockets.
Your help will make a dream come true for our little family. With your help this nature loving, mountain crazy, passionate climber and outoor enthusiast kid will get experiences of a life time. With your help we can show the world that anything is possible and inspire more families to spend time outdoors.
Check here to see how high we have come so far.
What are we trying to promote?
We will use the attention that our 46.000 project will get, to educate on importance of connecting children with nature and to inspire families to live a more adventurous and passionate life.
A little background
I am a single mum, running a Natural child organization in Slovenia. It is a nonprofit organization funded entirely by the parents. Our goal is keeping the kids outdoors, playing and learning in natural environment. We are also taking in traveling families to join our activities and get to know Slovenian nature in a good company of our wild and free kids. As the work I do is absolutely rewarding, emotionally fulfilling and world changing in personal sense, the financial part is really struggling. Helping us with completing our 46.000 challenge will also help me continue the work I do with new experiences and new energy. Part of the funds raised will be used to help grow our organization and our community of outdoor families.
Edited to add - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
We have accomplished our mountaineering mission and climbed all 46000 altitude meter in less then a year. We did not hike the globe as our financial status did not allow it, but we are continuing on that quest without a time frame.
Just before the corona hit we trekked 220 km around the Annapurna massive in Nepal, crossing 5416m high pass Thorung la. Sunny kid was amazing as always, accomplishing great things with amazing will and strong body. She got nicknamed Mountain Lioness by the international committee of trekkers ;) . Our fund raising will stay open, so if anyone wishes to sponsor our upcoming big mountaineering adventures can do so. We accept all help gratefully.
