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!
Hi, I have been bitten by the hiking bug and enjoy anything from a leisurely jaunt to a multiple day hike through our wonderful bush. I have enjoyed walking and hiking in many areas having completed the Cape to cape, the Great Ocean Road walk along with a couple of rambles in the UK, the most memorable being the Cumbria Way through the Lakes District. The Bibbulmun Track is a fantastic escape to nature right on our doorstep. I’ve managed a sectional end to end and have enjoyed many stretches on multiple occasions. I have met a number of great people along the way and hope to be able to experience walking with you soon.
Hi, I like to hike! I enjoy the sights, the smells and the sounds of being in the bush. The Bibbulmun Track is fabulous as it is so readily accessible and user friendly. I have completed two end to ends, one sectional and one during the wettest spring on record. In spite of this, I continue to get out on the track as often as I can. I have hiked in many locations here and abroad and can honestly say there is no place like home. If you share my enthusiasm come hike with me.
