We were now in Lachen, the sun had set, the dahl had been eaten and it was nearly time for bed. We were at 2700m so it was cold, especially at night, and I just couldn't bring myself to take off my RAB jacket even though I knew that after tonight, it would be bye bye R...

There are only 4 days until we leave for India and there is still SO much to do!

As my friends have probably noticed, I am extremely stressed as there are so many last minute changes and things that could potentially go wrong on this big adventure.

I think it's probably...

It's hard to train for walking in the Himalayas when you live in London. Once you've done the big hill in Richmond Park twice you're kind of done with it.

I decided that the best way to train for this challenge whilst being able to fit it into my busy life, would probab...

In My Journey to Lhasa, Alexandra David-Néel only mentions "cotton undergarments" as an indication of what she wore under her long cotton shirt. To keep my clothes as authentic as I can, I will be finding the early 1900s equivalent to anything like this that isn't full...

I’ve been blown away by all the help I’ve been offered by friends, family and strangers since I started organising this expedition.

The first person who has saved my bacon is Valerie Parkinson.

Valerie worked with me at Exodus Travels and is one of the most inspiring wom...

Here are 5 of my favourite quotes from the one and only Alexandra David-Néel.

September 15, 2017

The last time I attempted to summit a mountain at altitude was in 2015. It was a stupid idea, as six days later I was running the London Marathon on a last minute stand-in place for Friends of Conservation, a charity that Exodus Travels works very closely with....

I met my wonderful friend Bryony on a beach in Sri Lanka. We were both there to learn how to surf, on a week long "intensive surf course". 

If you've never been surfing before, a warning for your first time - it's not as easy as it looks and you don't look any...
