Whilst it was an exciting opportunity it was a far cry from a holiday. Travelling to remote places involves a lot of travel and living conditions that are far-off from a comfortable holiday. We did, of course, ensure everyone who travelled was safe and looked after but it was a challenging journey with ups and downs. Abbie was away from her family for a number of days as well as having to give up time before the trip to publicise the campaign through social media and interviews etc. Abbie also met people whose stories were very sad and sometimes distressing - unlike anything
she's likely to have encountered before - so it was really not just a holiday.
