Following on from my first post, here’s the 2nd thing that’s worrying me about doing Everest Base Camp….leaving my boys for approx. 17 days!
The longest I’ve been away from them previously was when I did Kilimanjaro 2 years ago which was for around 11 days. When I returned home from Kili there was a mixture of emotions that the boys showed me, one was silence….almost a ‘can’t believe you left me’ silence…mind you only lasted a little while (thankfully)!
But every time I think of my upcoming Everest Base Camp trip, I do feel incredibly guilty and selfish. But I know further down the line they will be proud of my achievements and I look forward to joining them on their own adventures!
How would you cope leaving your children for a length of time?
