    Hi. I'm Eloise Rees and am taking part in the IA. I am currently completing my Gold so after this trip, I shall never ever have to carry a heavy backpack ever again or get lost due to incompetent map reading, so I want this to be a great and unforgettable experience(for all the right reasons of course)!
