Into India, Out of Africa

Be transported from the relentlessly chaotic, but alluring assault on the senses that is India to the cool Himalayan magnificence of a trek to Everest Base Camp. Through the vastness of Australia, unable to escape the predictably painful experiences of England’s cricket team, before plunging into the outdoor activity challenges of New Zealand
Then, perhaps most compelling of all, the continent of Africa from the bottom up. An ambitious journey overland encompassing Africa’s most extreme bottom tip right up to its snow-covered top, Mt Kilimanjaro. Here it is not so much the final destination as all that is entailed to get there that informs and entertains.

May we not forget the people of Zimbabwe as they continue to suffer in silence.
