Helping Nepal with Toblerone

Nepal and it’s people hold a special place in my heart – I have been fortunate to visit four times and each time I’ve fallen more in love with the place, the people and their culture. Shocked and sad about the earthquake I felt pretty helpless in the comfort of my home, wondering how I […]

Nepal, Everest Summit Anniversary, & Toblerone

It’s four years today since I was on top of the world, literally. I’m careful where I use the word luck, because to hold luck responsible for something isn’t always accurate and can take away from the effort involved.  However, I can definitely say, especially in light of recent events in Nepal, I was lucky […]

Climbing Monte Rosa in the Aosta Valley

It was a total pleasure riding the BMW F800GS over the Petit St Bernard Pass from France to Italy into the Aosta Valley.  La Thuile, the first village you come to is particularly lovely in the summer. Arriving in Couymayeur soon after marked the end of my journey on the bike and the start of […]

The Go Trek – Final Week

I began the final week after a two day break with my sister and friends, which was wonderful, physically and mentally.  I refuelled, recharged and felt good and mostly I was thinking, “I can’t believe in just a few days I’ll be in Paris at the end of The Go Trek!”. Monday was an easy […]
