Expeditions

I love to go walking whenever I can especially when there are big mountains involved. I started doing the Duke of Edinburgh awards when I was 14, getting my bronze award. Then I progressed to my silver and eventually my gold which I undertook in Poland. The photo imediately below is of me and my friend at St. James' Palace getting our Gold awards, which were presented by the Duke himself.

I have had some interesting times whilst I've been on expeditions around the world - not all pleasant!! I've had hyperthermia twice, once in the Lake Districts where I was unconsious for 5 hours and had to be air-lifted off the mountain to the nearest hospital, the second time was in New Zealand but because I recognised the signs I managed to get to a hut and warm myself up again before it got too bad.
