Zumba on Ben Nevis

I was guiding (for Maximum Adventure) a lovely group of 5 last Saturday on Ben Nevis and Ian came too for the crack! The weather was glorious and the company fantastic. Only two of the group knew each other beforehand but by the end of the day we were all the best of friends. At the summit, Lorna, a fitness and Zumba instructor performed a Zumba routine to get into the records book for the highest performed in Britain. Before she did this, she had us all dancing as a warm-up which was great fun! Another one of our group, Nikki (Mzingaye) had been writing a poem on the way up describing what was going through his mind, and he sat quietly at the summit reading this to us. It was very moving and almost tear jerking, a very special moment. This day will take some beating!!
