This week we speak to Alvina, who after separating from her husband, found the courage to travel on her own and start a new life up in the north of England. She tells us about the wonderful places you can visit in the Lake District, her childhood home, about her hikes and how she is learning to become a mountain guide.
Her first solo trip was to Rome, which she found empowering and liberating. She's never looked back! Since then she has travelled on her own to Peru, Florida, Bhutan, Nepal, completed a TEFL course in Cambodia, worked for 6 months in Vietnam, and travelled to Borneo and much of Vietnam.
