In January 2024, 9 incredible vegan ladies made history and joined me to hike  ‘El Camino De Costa Rica.’

El Camino De Costa Rica is a little-known, extremely challenging 280 km coast-to-coast hike starting in the Caribbean and finishing in the Pacific and I’m very proud to say that we were the first all-female, vegan group to have hiked it, go team Trailblazers!

I hope you find some inspiration and motivation in this ‘How She Did It’ interview series, let’s get started with Samantha from the UK.
