Great Game Over – Leg 5 & Expedition Complete!!

Hi All, Boris, Kiwi Ted and I arrived back at the gates of the Royal Geographical Society in London on Saturday 1st February 2014 at midday. The fifth leg of the journey was short and sweet (The blog for it will be out shortly).

Last Friday I pop along to see the Outdoor Show at the London Excel centre. January is the time all the big summer based exhibitions come to town.

Embrace the Struggle

Embrace the Struggle

I’m struggling along at the moment. I’ve finally reached that point I knew would arrive at some stage. I’ve fallen behind on my blogging, I’m struggling to keep up my triathlon training, I’m juggling my trip planning and the day job is not giving me a chance to rest.
