 In this section I have written about some of the great adventures or trips that I have been fortunate enough to take part in. Some have been independently planned, whilst on others I was a lucky participant or invited to work on them. Depending on the time I have and energy I can muster, I do try to write up the bigger events. However, there is a lot that I do do, that I neglect to pen and I probably take for granted. Anyhow, read through and enjoy my insights.
