In 2019 Body Shop at Home Consultant Claire Martin decided that she wanted to push herself out of her comfort zone, so booked a charity trekking challenge to Jordan for the following year. The trek involved lots of walking, camping (which is not something she is passionate about) and would also be the first time that she had travelled alone. When the pandemic hit, the trek was cancelled and rearranged,then cancelled a second time so Clare decided to switch to another adventure, this time in Sri Lanka but due to the political unrest in the country her trip was cancelled yet again. In spite of all this, Claire was determined to complete her challenge, so with just one month’s notice she set her sights on Cuba.
