Trek Epic - Pembrokeshire

I was fortunate enough to attend the trek epic trip to wales/Pembrokeshire for 10 days. I saw various parts of the UK particularly on the ocean countryside that was breathtaking and beautiful. I also met very nice young adults from all over the world that took part on the trek aside me. I also got a sense of what my core gifts are through daily reflection. overall I rate the experience a 10/10. although I enjoyed getting to know the other people who participated on the trek, most of them lived far away from where I am from.

Pros
  • better sense of self
  • scenery
  • relationships
Cons
  • limited time of travel

A sunny adventure that came at the right time

Andrew and Marielle were the guides on my trek and they were fun, confident, and provided the structure we needed to make the trip successful. Andrew answered my questions as to ease my worry before I got on my flight. I found it comforting to be surrounded by warm and unique individuals, especially our B&B hosts.

Of course I wish the trek had lasted longer: lots of beautiful scenery, deep conversations, and appreciation for life that followed me back home. This trek came when I needed it most.

Pros
  • Lots of support before and after the trek: recommended items to pack, questions answered, daily gratitudes, follow-up, etc.
  • Where we're eating and sleeping daily is arranged as to ease any worry about organization
  • I was emotional the first day because I was scared but also grateful for the experience. Everyone on our trek was kind and eased my fear.
Cons
  • I wish it would have lasted longer!

TrekEpic

Excellent staff and social group with a wide variety of ages and backgrounds everyone seemed up for the trek and up for its learning process. The trek itself was very beautiful and every place we stopped for the night had different and new things to experience. Are bigger luggage was carried to our next location so we only had to bring a backpack with essentials on the walks witch helped us focus more on the nature and ourselves then worrying about our back pain! Honestly no complaints great experience a good start to a long an unexpected journey I’m still on!

Pros
  • Learning more about yourself
  • Seeing new places
  • Meeting new people

Lisbon to Fatima

This was an awesome, safe way to travel, meet new people and gain a greater understanding of myself. Andrew was awesome and the housing was great. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to broaden their horizons and dig deeper in to what makes them tick. I pushed myself physically and mentally and came away with incredible memories. I not only learned about other cultures and people but also about what I was capable of and clarified what my purpose is in this world. Great people, great program.

Pros
  • Seeing the world
  • Pushing myself physically
  • Discovering things about myself
Cons
  • Blisters
  • People snoring
  • The heat

My first great European adventure.

In August of 2014 shortly after graduating High school. I set off on my very first trip to the United Kingdom. My trip began with a 10-day Pilgrimage with Trek epic starting in London and heading up through the Northumberland region of the UK that borders Scotland to the North and the North sea to the east. These Pilgrimages are specially designed for you to disconnect from the rest of the world and discover what truly makes you special inside and how you can use that gift i to benefit others in your day-to-day life. For the most part you live like a local we stayed in hostels not Hotels and we enjoyed the local foods of each destination we visited. Which is also what I think makes Trek epic a fun and memorable experience for all.

What was your funniest moment?
My funniest moment I remember was forgetting my luggage on the train ride up from London and having to were pretty much the same thing the entire time I was in the UK with very few laundry options. I also willingly went swimming in the North Sea at various points along the Trek.

Trek Epic

I did the Pembrokeshire coast trek with Trek Epic and it was an amazing experience. I think what makes Trek Epic unique is their emphasis on learning about both yourself and others. I was able to meet some really awesome people through my trek with them. Everything was well organized and each of our stops was interesting and unique. Our guides did an excellent job of keeping everyone engaged and on schedule. One thing that also stood out to me about Trek Epic is that things never felt rushed. We were on a schedule, but we were also able to take a lot of time to just explore and experience the amazing place we were in.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't be intimidated if you don't know any of the other trekkers. Many of them are in the same boat as you, and the nature of the trek lends itself to making fast friendships.

I walked through Tuscany and all i left with was new life insight, new friends and once in a lifetime expereinces!

Trek Epic was recommended to me by a past trekker, fellow co-worker, and friend. The best advocate you can find for Trek Epic is someone who has done it!
My experience was more than I could have ever dreamed. I thrive outside of my comfort zone. I like meeting new people, and I love seeing new places. I also love to hike. All of these things surpassed my expectation. I was challenged and it felt good. I didn't have all the control, and that also felt good. I met people from different parts of the country, which reminded me that we are all the same at the core, and that we might not be all that different.
Our travel accommodations were excellent. Housing and food were excellent. The itinerary was laid out with just the right amount of vague-ness to still keep some mystery and thrill in the plan! I would highly recommend anyone, of any age, to take this opportunity up if its presents itself. Leaders were professional, and kind and thoughtful. I am so thankful I was able to experience TrekEpic. Thank you Bruce, Leslie and Andrew. I will keep my sharing my gift, if you all keep sharing yours!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Get out of your comfort zone and appreciate being outside and walking. I think that is something I take for granted, everyday, but being able to do that in another country and culture is so, so special.

Great Experience!

I took part in the trek epic trek along the Pembrokeshire coast and it was a fantastic journey and experience. It's a great way for people to take a step back and reflect, irrespective of the stage they are in life. The route we took was very scenic and it's hard to now feel at peace during this journey. Andrew and Bruce are great and very helpful! They are always there to listen and guide.
I highly recommend this trek to anyone especially young adults who are unsure about future steps. This trek is not supposed to give you very concrete answers but it will definitely guide you in the right direction and give you an idea of where your values are. The other people on the trek are also great and you will meet some very interesting people and hear cool stories.

I love Trek Epic!!

I have had the pleasure of completing two treks with Trek Epic, both of which were amazing experiences! My first Trek was Offa’s Dyke along the border of England and Wales. During this Trek I was going through an extremely difficult time in life and was lacking confidence and direction. This Trek allowed me to explore myself and my identity with the help of my peers and amazing leaders. Who would have thought just walking and thinking could be so so therapeutic?! I returned to the states knowing my life had purpose and value. I loved my first Trek so much I knew I had to do it again. I then completed the advance Trek through Tuscany, Italy. My life was more stable at this point so this Trek really allowed me to dig deeper into my life goals and ambitions. I truly believe a Trek can help any person who is at any point of their lives. Walking is so healing and being in such an amazing community in a forgein land allows so much growth. The leaders of these Treks are some of the most amazing people I know who truly care about guiding others. I recommend Trek Epic highly to anyone!

An Essential Experience

Trek Epic changed my life. I initially went on the trip hoping to gain some career advice at the same time take a travel opportunity. But I came out with so much more. This experience helps you tune in to your inner-self in a way that cannot be done amidst the noise of our busy lives. This trip is a chance to remove yourself from the chaos and be put in a place and community where you can truly feel empowered and connected to your real purpose. The process was incredible and has rewarded me in several ways. The greatest gift was to explore my inner self in a safe space (with a beautiful scenery!) amongst the most kind and affirming of people. Bruce and Andrew have become my forever mentors in all things career, relationships, and overall life. No matter what phase of life you are in, you can benefit from this experience--both physically and spiritually. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I cannot recommend it more highly!!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
Walking along the Pembrokshire Coast in Wales was one of the most breath-taking sceneries you will ever have the opportunity to see!
