How The Hell Did I Get Here?
At the age of 40, simply looking for something to keep her mind occupied, Pamela Lynch enrolled in an Arts degree at the University of Western Australia.
What followed was an unexpected fifteen-year journey that culminated in a PhD in Classics and Ancient History. A journey of discovery that would have repercussions she could never have imagined. Not content to take life easy after her Doctorate, Pamela decided to trek to Everest Base Camp to celebrate her 60th birthday.
Having achieved this most physical of challenges, for some unknown reason, even to herself, she decided to go back to Nepal two years later to take on a much more difficult route through the Himalayas.
This trek didn’t go as planned and Pamela was still in Kathmandu when, on the 25th April 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, the largest in over eighty years, struck Nepal.
In How The Hell Did I Get Here? Pamela takes us on both her physical, outward journey through the Himalayas and her inner journey over the last 25 years that now sees her, at 64, as a firm advocate for seeing, doing and experiencing life, as much and as often as we can.
“I was there, I was part of it. Nepal was shaken, I was shaken, but I don’t regret one step of my journey.”
Pamela Lynch was born in the Lincolnshire steel works town of Scunthorpe and emigrated to Western Australia with her family at the age of 13. Having married at 19 and raised two daughters she made the decision at the age of 40 to return to study. After 15 years part-time at the University of Western Australia, she gained her PhD in Classics and Ancient History and then went on to trek to Everest Base Camp at 60. She has four grandchildren and currently enjoys life as a traveller, adventurer, blogger and speaker.
