"I had the most amazing time in Wales at the weekend thanks to Motivated Minds! I would never have thought about attempting something like this on my own, but I met an amazing group of people, and had a really unique experience thanks to #TeamMotivated. I’ve come back feeling refreshed and inspired; if you simply want food and a bed, book it independently, but if you want to boost your confidence, meet inspiring people, have support and guidance, and most importantly come home with a new zest for life, then book here! One of my favourite trips ever, can’t thank the team enough!"
