Hi! I’m Issy, a 23 year old Australian who’s about to start a SOBO, end to end of the Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia. The Bibb is an 1000km trail that stretches from Kalamunda, a suburb in the Perth hills, to a beautiful town called Albany, right down the south coast. It takes anywhere from 40 – 60 days to complete (unless you’re a nut and do it even faster!), and I’m planning on doing it in about 52 days.
I’m actually from Albany, the coastal town in which the trail ends, so it feels really special to be walking my way home! I’ve been planning for what feels like forever, so it’s very surreal to be a week out from arriving at the trail head. My plan for this blog is to do weekly/biweekly trail updates whenever I have a rest day in a town, so friends and family will be able to follow along with my journey.
Thanks for tuning in – I can’t wait to see what these next two months hold, and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to share the adventure with the Trek :))
