Is it true that time goes by quicker when you’re older?

As I’m putting the final details together for the Scope Everest Trek it dawned on me that my last trip there was in 2006, where has the time gone (apart from having a child, gaining 2 new amazing colleagues, moving offices, turning 40 this year)!? 

This will be the 8th time Scope has run this amazing trekking challenge in the stunning Everest region, all of us here wish you an amazing trip! 

Then I thought, we should organise this trip for anyone, so we have, join us in November on our brand new Open Challenge to Everest.  Whilst most of us can only dream of summiting this mighty mountain, this stunning 19 day trek allows us to become seduced by the myths and excitement of Mount Everest and the dynamic region of the Sherpa people. We will have the opportunity to explore its lower majesty. Along the way, we will witness ancient Tibetan Buddhism as we visit and learn and become inspired from our guides.

What a view on a Monday morning!
