Kokoda Trail Blazer Yvonne Shepherd is the Chief Adventurer for Women’s Fitness Adventures. What a cool title…. Yvonne decided a few years ago that she should do something special in her 50th year. Unlike most people she eschewed the usual romantic options of champagne in Paris or a Hot Air balloon flight, and with some of her friends and family they decided to walk the Kokoda Track. 

The Kokoda Track was made famous through the 2nd world War and the defense of the Pacific against the Japanese. It is an incredibly grueling, physically challenging 96 km trek through the Owen Stanley Ranges in Papua New Guinea, a single person track through a tropical jungle. It is also well known as a vehicle for taking a long hard look at yourself and your life. 

Yvonne gives us an incredible insight in what it takes to do something like this. Shares some of the good and not so good things about an adventure of this type and talks with me about the effect this has had on her and her family. Yes she also took her teenage son along. 

Yvonne enjoyed this so much she is now putting together a trip so that other women can experience this for themselves. Watch this space. 

An incredible woman and an incredible journey.
