A charity volunteer is back home on Wearside after completing her biggest ever challenge to raise money for a Sunderland cause.
Janey Maw was in South America for two weeks, to hike to Machu Pichu in Peru and then spent a week in the Amazon rainforest.
She took on 26 miles of walking at altitude and her first experience of outdoor sleeping.
Janey tells Sun FM what it was all for:
It took four days to reach the summit of Machu Picchu and the Inca ruins.
Janey tells Sun FM one of the highlights:
The gruelling walk was just half of the challenge – Janey then took to the rainforest for an adventure in the Amazon where she came across all kinds of wildlife.
Janey, her husband Ian and 14 others shared a platform above the jungle floor and had shifts in pitch black darkness through the night with just a torch.
She was taken on tours by a guide and came across birds, spiders, deers, monkeys and tapirs.
Janey tells Sun FM how the adventure was:
Despite being back on UK soil, she says people can still donate to the cause:
If you’d like to do so, you can find the link to the JustGiving page here.
You can take a look back at her adventure blog, including river crossings and animal encounters here.
