Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of holding a presentation for the Norwegian Travellers’ Club in Oslo. The Club was established in 1928 and has a rich history of travel and exploration. I held a presentation for the Club after I kayaked the length of Norway solo and this time talked about the preparations for walking the Great Wall.
As the audience was full of experienced travellers, I brought along a notepad and asked them to comment on my preparations and suggest how I can prepare myself even better. By the time the evening was over, I had written down a number of good suggestions that I will look into.
After the presentation, we all had a very nice meal with drinks and then we sat around talking of the passion that inspires us: Travelling the world. Towards the end of the evening I was presented with a ‘Good Luck’ greeting from the Club. I hope to be able to visit them again when I’ve finished walking the Great Wall of China.
