Life 2 The Limit 2010

In April 2010, ten ordinary people will leave behind family, friends, and the comforts of home, and embark upon an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. Armed with nothing more than the contents of a five-litre backpack, they'll set off for the raw beauty of the Asia Pacific archipelago, and 30 days alone on a remote island. Except they won't be entirely alone: they'll have snakes, insects, and thick tropical jungle for company - and, most challenging of all, each other.

There are no evictions, no immunities, no surprise luxuries: just one month learning to adjust to an alien environment, to make the jungle home, and to somehow survive on the island's fresh water, and whatever food the jungle and ocean offer. Food that will need to be hunted, trapped or caught. Hunger, sleep deprivation, and a range of emotional challenges - for the ten people involved, surviving the island could be their greatest achievement ever, as they discover exactly what it means to live Life 2 the Limit.

Angi StanfordNEWS FROM ANGI STANFORD!

What L2TL left me with...

Hey, hey. What can I say!  This was an amazingly special time in my life! One I will forever cherish, appreciate and think back on…

Firstly, thank you Huenu for having the great idea in the first place and then the drive and perseverance to get it off the ground…  This took some doing!

Secondly, thanks to my fellow islanders. You were all great in your own individual ways. I am honoured to now call you all friends.

Thirdly, someone who has taught me a whole lot as well as being my supportive scuba diving buddy; Bella. Our brilliant journalist; patient, kind, fair and objective. Someone who bound us all together…

Also to all of my friends , family and  strangers that have supported me on this adventure. If it wasn’t for you all, I wouldn’t have wanted to come home at all!!!

And then a special mention to quite a few really exceptional people out there who, without being asked, gave financially what they could to my charity of choice, The Red Cross Memorial Childrens’ Hospital. This meant such a massive amount to me!

I too want to thank those who have pledged their help with the presentation I will be giving within the next 3 weeks. This is a fund raiser where I’ll be showing photos and talking about our island experience. If anyone is interested in coming please contact me at: AStanford@AlydAir.co.za

This is some of what I have gained from this special experience:

- A will to do more, not only for myself, but also for others.
- Humbleness. I was such a small thing in the order of life, living an exceptional experience.
- Gratitude for this beautiful world that God has given us for our enjoyment.
- Appreciation. Usually I am too busy or preoccupied to feel this. On the island I had it with me the whole time… I hope never to lose it…
- Confidence in my ability to make a difference…

“Live life, survive by your wits, take chances, go through those open doors with a positive mind, smile on your face and spirit in your heart…” quoted from my diary the day I left the island…
