Op Snowstorm was a round the world trip where I was going to snowboard on every continent,  I had planned it whilst in Afghanistan for when I had left the Army, but my darling husband proposed and the trip got adapted somewhat, he came with and we still managed snowboarding in New Zealand and South America, but left those two hanging...

I seem to now naturally do new challenges all the time, I think it has just become my mindset, and it seems that when challenges come up that I do not, or would not choose (Hurty-Coccyx-itus for example) then I am dealing with them so much more resiliently!


I've currently completed 21,  about 5 others are underway.

Inspiration and support from (amongst others) ResilienceatWork, Toughgirlpodcast, ChrissieW, RachelD, Barty, LSH, Carruthers, my team and my lovely family.
