An early start meant grabbing a simple breakfast, my priority was coffee. I had not slept well the previous night, the combination of a long journey and nerves for what the week had in store for me. We gathered around the breakfast table getting to know each other a little better. My fellow adventurers were from across Europe; Sebastian from Dortmund, Thomas from Brussels, Alex from the Isle of Skye, Al from Gravesend, Lukasz the photographer from Stockport.
I was fortunate enough to be selected to take part in the National Geographic Talisker Storm Adventure 2014. This journey will take place around the stunning Isle of Skye, it is being led by the adventurer and explorer Alastair Humphreys. You can follow my journey here.
