Northern Thailand

A wonderful, well planned and diverse activity tour. A great insight into the wonderful people and sights of Northern Thailand and plenty of free time to explore and discover for yourself. The other members of the group made for a memorable trip.

Bali Retreat

My trip to the Bali retreat was amazing. I had know idea what to expect but it was beyond anything I could have imagined. I went with my daughter who has been through a rough year and she just needed some time out, so we were probably a bit withdrawn from the rest of the group for the first few days, but the best thing about the retreat was that you did not have to join in if you did not want to.

The bike ride on the Tuesday was awesome and the day in Ubud was just great, I loved it so much am seriously thinking of going back next year. Karen has the retreat running to perfection and I am still on a high after being home 4 days. And the best thing of all is I am finally over the coffee addiction, have not had a cup of coffee for over a week,feel great for it . Yahoo

Reef N Rock

Thank you AW for taking us on an Awesome Adventure through out the vastness of WA and showing us her beauty in many hidden pockets. The georgeous group of women ensured hours spent on the bus were insignifincant compared to the spectatcular trip we were embarking upon. The accommodation was as fantastic as it was varied as we enjoyed the contrasts from eco tents to shearing quarters all with lots of character. Highlights were many but I loved the Pinnalces, Red Bluff took your breath away with it's beaty, Kayaking at Ningaloo reef was so amazingly spectacular and when we thought we had it enjoyed it all, it was outdone by the beauty of Karijini and our adrenalin packed day of cannonying, abseiling, paddling and rock climbing. It was a well planned out trip and I would do it again in a heart beat. Well done!

Would of loved to spend more time at Red Bluff and Karijini National Park to explore more of the wonderful gorges in the area.

REEF & ROCK

Spectacular scenery, awesome activities and a fantastic group of ladies to travel with. This tour was well worth the trip from the east coast. AW and their partner operators provided experiences that went beyond my expectations. Thanks for a professionally run tour and memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

What a fabulous well-kept secret this sanctuary is! It was good to see that there was no rubbish along the trails either.

I was stepping out of my comfort zone and wow it was not what I thought it would be. Great team work, food and company. Would do it again.

Laser Combat

Yet again I enjoyed every minute of a great Adventurous Women event! Fabulous fun doning the camo gear, smearing my face with more camo colors, then pretending to run around the place shooting at everyone! What an amazing experience - another 1st for me, but won't be the last. The absolutely scrumptious home-made gourmet meal at the end was awesome, washed down with a few drops of bubbly. A great way to get to meet and make peace with some of the other ladies I spent the day shooting at! Definitely looking forward to doing this one again... bring it on!!

Another fantastic event with The AWesome Adventurous Women! As always, the event was well organised and the mix of women was great.

Great afternoon/evening as usual. Great to meet new people (and I'm getting better at small talk!!!) Susan was a great speaker and promoted a really worthwhile cause without forcing the fundraising down your throat!!

Champagne and Sparkling Conversation

I really enjoyed this event. Its my first non strenous event :) . The room was intimate enough without being too small or too big. Everyone new and existing members were very friendly. The format was relaxed and informal (which I enjoy and prefer) Im looking forward to the next event.

Abseiling Bluff Knoll Adventure

Fantastic weekend with many challenges in overcoming certain fears and hurdles. Wonderful support from everyone who attended this awesome weekend as you were all so friendly and extremely encouraging. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for organising this great outing through Adventure Out who were very professional and really well organised.    

13/04/2012 Ameliam

This was such a great trip, was nice to not have to do to much thinking as it was well organised, which mean't that i could enjoy walking and relaxing!

NSW wine kayak

This was a well organized trip with a competent and encouraging guide. The pace was suitable for all and the instructions given were for beginners were clear and helpful. The food provided was great. The only improvement I would suggest is for the operator to provide personal flotation devices that were not so old and used.

Bluff Knoll Abseil

This was an absolutely amazing trip. All the ladies were fantastic and we bonded really well as a very supportive, caring group.  On many, many occassions individual ladies were seen encouraging others in an extremely positive way. On Castle Rock ladies often paused on their own abseil to wait for a less confident lady, and abseil beside her. We were well prepared to act as each others' support, and religiously performed safety checks on each other, and offer encouragement especially on the Bluff Knoll abseil when a pair of ladies were alone on a ridge between pitches. The achievievement of ALL the ladies as they enthusiastically met the challenges head on, overecoming their fears an doing things they never thought possible was truely inspirational ... all the while with huge smiles on their faces!!

Just a wonderful variety from the tough climb to Mt Kinabalu summit, to trekking along the Headhunters Trail, walking through the most magnificent National Parks to experiencing the true Borneo. Thanks Sue Hile for making this happen. I just had the most amazing fun.

05/03/2012 Ameliam

Thanks to AW (especially Sue, Brad and Sue!) for organising such a fabulous Cape to Cape experience. It was well organised, the food was amazing, the scenery was spectacular and the company was hilarious. What more could you ask for?

10/04/2012 Anna W

Having now completed the Cape to Cape journey, a long-time dream of mine, gave me such appreciation for our beautiful landscape, rugged coastline and magnificent oceans that demand our respect. Being given the means and support to do this, at times, challenging walk by Adventurous Women to fulfill this rewarding experience makes me feel so privileged. Sharing the week with such a lovely like-minded group of women up for the challenge was uplifting as we endeavoured, no matter our age, to complete this renowned track.

Kayak, wine & oyster tasting
Wonderful!  The weather was good, the water was calm and the oysters & wine were great. Our tour leader was charming & hilarious which added to the experience. Would recommend it.

15/04/2012 Sharon S

I had an absolute amazing time, a good mix of everything, esp loved the long boat rides down the river, could have done that all day. Great bunch of like minded women.  Only one thing was the transfer that were meant to be included (x 2 - transfer from airport to hotel & luggage moved to hotel during the jungle trek) had to pay for myself.  But not a bid deal as being Asia it wasn't overly expensive anyway.  But overall had a blast.  Now my sister wants to come on the next trip I do.

Surf Sip 'n Cycle

As always, it was an absolute pleaseure spending a wonderful weekend with some fabulous AW ladies. The ladies were extremely impressed, and very much enjoyed meeting each other and having a lot of fun. Tam and Rob from Dirty Detours were fabulous as always. Even with one of our riders who had a bit of a wake-up call on how unfit she was, thus walking rather than riding over a few stretches, Rob was wonderfully encouraging and put her very much at ease. Josh was as enthusiastic as ever, and very disappoionted and apologetic about the hazardour surf conditions. He definitely made the correct decision in deciding it was unsafe, and thus not feasible. He also offered the alternative of paddling on the river, but the windy cold conditions would have also made that unpleasant. The ladies all definitely agrreed... so we went to plan B. That being some fabulous coffees at the Blue Ginger Cafe (highly recomended by Rob and Tammy and they were right!) followed by the cheese factory, chocolate factory, Provadores and the Nut & Cereal factory! The accomodation at Surfpoint was not as favorable as it has been in the past. The kitchen facilities were very lacking - all the cutlery was plastic, as were the dozen or so plates and there were only perhaps 6 mugs and no glasses at all. Unfortunately we also experience the "quiet after 10pm" rule was completely ignored and unenforced. A very rowdy group of rugby players and ladies returned sometime around 3am and we all knew about it. It was a shame as it put a bit of a damper on things.

Wow! What a trip! This was my first overseas adventure tour and I can't wait to book on for another trip soon. Our host, Sue, was everything a host should be; a leader, fun to be with; organised and most of all passionate about our experiences. From Ronnie the orangutan, the sombreness and tranquility of the Sandakan war memorial to the trekking and the sounds of the jungle at night, this was an adventure I will remember forever. The only thing I found disappointing was the bats not making an appearance. However, I was assured that this was unfortunately not under the control of our tour guide, Duke, nor Adventurous Women.....maybe next time!! Thanks Adventurous Women for a fabulous and memorable trip through the heart and soul of Borneo.

CONGRATULATIONS &  a humongous THANK YOU  for one of the most SENSATIONAL things I have ever done in my life !!! This trip had a special agenda for me.....and all and anything beyong expections.

A wonderful afternoon with some wonderful ladies.  Thoroughly enjoyed myself, and the sweet treats weren't half bad either.

High Tea @ the George

It was a thoroughly enjoyable event and great introduction to the group. Setting and food /service was excellent....company was great. I found the other ladies easy to chat to and was made to feel welcome. Thanks Lorelle for a lovely event.

11/03/2012 Ro G

The trip was interesting, exciting, challenging and occasionally relaxing. I loved every minute, I can't think of anything that could improve the trip. As with all of my AW trips so far, the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. No expectations placed upon us, just be ourselves and enjoy.

Book Club

Great to catch up with friends again - this time I knew everyone! Not sure the venue was right - service wasn't very good - meals came out in dribs and drabs! I'm happy to do lunch again but think some of the others prefer the afternoon tean scenario. Missed you Lorelle:)

Bali Balance Retreat

Arriving at night made waking up in the morning such an overwelming experience. The view from my level of the bungalow was totally mesmerising that I'd even grabbed the camera before opening the doors to the balcony.

The food every day was unbelievalbly refreshing (no can or packet items) that I purchased a mortar & pestel which will definitely be used in my unfrequently used kitchen. Karen puts her recipies up on the Sharing Bali FB page which I know some of us have already investigated and I'm sure have enjoyed the rewards of such meals.

The pampering of a few massages was definitely what the doctor ordered. Even after the traditional balinese massage, a couple of days later during my full body massage I'm sure some knots & issues were found. I was very excited to know I was going to enjoy a bike ride since I haven't been riding for some time here but to know I was in a different country and roaming around on 2 wheels cycle style I was in heaven. Even the extra 10kms were thoroughly enjoyed and glad Maryanne joined me and was a legand on her own bike!! The yoga made me realise I need to get my pilates DVD back into play and start toning up....hell worth it even if it got the better of me. Also the tips Gabbi gave some of my fellow AWs was absolutely encouraging and felt so postitive for them....even for me in my own way. As for the meditation.....WOW......it just blew me away considering I hadn't done it before. Whether it was the fact i was in a totally different place but was well & truly overwelmbed by the whole experience. The emotions were definitely brought ot the surface but all good though. But it will depend on where you are in your life and what experiences/challenges your going through. It was such an awesome experience.

On a personal note I'd like to thank Sue from the bottom of my heart for hosting such a wondering trip. As previous mentioned anyone leading a group of known & unknown travellers would have been worrying but as always things turned out just as planned. New friends, new adventures & in some cases the start of new travel experiences was well worth the week spent in Ubud and the extra night in Legian. Oh and I never suffered Bali belly or was asked if my hair could be plaited!!

THANKS MISS SUE.....YOU'RE AN AWESOME LEADER & YOU'RE ALL THAT AW STANDS FOR!!

Bali Balance Retreat

10 out of 10 I so enjoyed this trip even more than I expected. From the unbelievable accommodation with there mind blowing views, to the sensational food we got to eat, and all activities.

 

I would also like to thank you Sue for all the help and support you gave me. Being an in-experienced traveller I received and needed a great deal of help and support in all my queries prior to leaving Perth and also while travelling at the airports, retreat and hotel transfers ECT. All in all a wonderful experience that I will never forget and hope to repeat.

All About You 5 Star Retreat, Bali

We had a wonderful time on the All About You Retreat. My daughter and I spent 4 fabulous days being massaged and pampered within an inch of our lives and it was great. We had private yoga lessons on the beach every morning at 6.30am and a blessing by a balinese priest, lots of tlc throught the course of the long weekend, and our hair was washed and blow dried every evening after the day of treatments had ended, so we could go out straight away, although we were too exhausted by the day of total relaxation to be bothered to do anything but eat and sleep. Delma and her staff are lovely and discussed any issues we had prior to treatment every day, so they could be solved before we began. I started the retreat with a headache which I had had for 3 days prior to leaving for Bali but under their care and a lot of massaging of my shoulders and neck it was gone by the next day. It is a bit more expensive than some other day spas in Bali, but I believe the girls have pride in their work and care about treating us respectfully.

Womens Outback Adventure

The Outback Adventure was perfect in so many ways. From the generosity and tolerance of 16 adventurous women who were relative strangers at the start, to Sue's expediant organisational skills, and to the ever-changing beauty of the outback scenery, made this an exceptional journey - physically and spiritually. There was just enough daily travelling, plenty of 'own space' if needed and always someone to have an adventure with. Every day was filled with laughter, as we reaped the benefits of fresh air, unwinding and being at ease with each other and of course being more than suitably fed and watered. Some of us more 'watered' than others. If you hadn't caught a dose of Sue's enthusiasm and drive during this adventure then you must have been asleep at the back of the bus for 9 days. With Sue doing all the co-ordinating I felt safe and assured that all I needed to do was enjoy myself. Camping out under the stars was a dream come true for a city-girl and I came away with hundreds of great memories, and new friends. 'Once in a lifetime' is a cliche I know, but it suitably describes this trip. Brilliant!

Walking on Water (or flying over top)

AWesome weekend, can't believe how much fun I had with such a great group of like minded girls/ladies.  Everyone was enthusiastic and even though it didn't go exactly as planned (due to Mother Nature) I was not dissappointed in the slightest, with that being the general vibe of all those attending.
