Author Rachael Thomas Travels to China!


For the last six months I have been spending lots of time preparing and training for a charity trek in China. Later this month I will be leaving my desk and flying out to Beijing and then onto The Great Wall of China where I will spend five days trekking to raise funds for British Heart Foundation.

My training has meant lots of walking and my dog, Poppy and I have done plenty of walking locally. We’ve spent many hours walking over our farm and the surrounding area.

I’ve also spent time walking along the coastal path near me. This is looking back down to Aberaeron on a very blustery autumn day.


To prepare myself for the many steps and steep hills I will encounter along the wall, I have also spent time in the nearby Brecon Beacons, where the scenery is stunning.


If you would like to sponsor me that would be fantastic. I am funding my trip so every penny of the money I raise is going to British Heart Foundation and you can make your donation on my Just Giving page.



Don’t forget to stop by in November when I will be here again to tell you all about the walk and my time in China.

I love escaping to distant shores with my characters, entering their glamorous world and feeling all the emotions they experience as they discover their love for one another. A love so strong it will overcome all obstacles eventually, leading to that promised happy ever after.

  12. I hope you enjoy your time in China. I lived there in the '80s, but I think it's a very different place now.
