Kenya with Camps International and GIS

Kenya for me is the quintessential Africa, a land of open savannah, red earth, wild animals and leaping Masai warriors, so when I got the chance to lead an expedition there with Camps International and GIS it was too good a chance to turn down. We comprised a truly international group with team members coming

16.9.17 Walking with; Action for Children challenge team The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is one of my favourite challenge events, it’s tough, pretty much the distance of a full marathon, but it’s doable and it makes sense as a challenge, it doesn’t feel contrived.

I have particularly enjoyed the caving and the low ropes in spite of

Busy, busy, busy

It’s been a while since I last updated the blog and whilst I feel a bit remiss, the reason is basically because we are having our busiest ever season here and there’s barely been time to pop home and get the washing done over the last few weeks! Not that I’m complaining….There has been a
