Just call me Barb! I am originally from Switzerland. I moved for good to Australia at the end of 2013. Why? The Bibbulmun Track called me back! I walked this fabulous hiking track end2end solo in autumn 2010 in regard to a review and preview of life. In Switzerland I used to be a lecturer for physical education at the Swiss Federal Institute of Sport and here in Perth I am doing a PhD in physical education science. Physical activities have always been part of my life and I like to infect others with my passion for being physically active as part of the divine nature. I look forward to walking with you!
My acquaintance with the Bibbulmun Track goes back to the mid 1980s. We walked most of the old alignment. On blistered feet and aching legs we learnt valuable early lessons about hiking. The children came along and my walking adventures adapted to suit their little legs. As they have moved onto their own adventures I found more time to return to my own, including walking the Bibb Track. The Bibb Track really is a world class asset. People from all over the world come here to walk it. I know. I have spoken with many out on the Track. I am keen, as a Bibb Track vollie, to share some of my passion, knowledge and skills with others who can then enjoy our wilderness for themselves and in turn share it with others.
