Vue West End cinema, Leicester Square, London
We are looking forward to speaking along with an a collection of Adventurers at the Night of Adventure in London. The event is for charity with all proceeds going to Hope & Homes for Children.
Looks set to be a great night. If anyone is interested in attending you can book tickets here.
We reached Shanghai on Wednesday 16th January,10 months after setting out from Istanbul. It has been quite an amazing adventure and finishing has not sunk in just yet. Thanks to everyone who has supported both ourselves and Self Help Africa.
We would like to thank Jeremy Finbar Hayes and the Xu family for the incredible kindness they have shown us over the last two days. Reaching Wuhu on 1st January required us to paddle for 29 of the last 30 days. We were tired to the point of exhaustion and badly in need of a rest, meal and warm bed. After a wonderfully relaxing break we are now restored to full fitness and ready to tackle the final 450km stint to Shanghai.
We hope to paddle the distance in 12 days but are very much at the mercy of a prevailing northernly wind. Only now, after 280 days on the roads and rivers of Asia have we begun to picture concluding the expedition. Wuhu!
