With only three weeks left until we board the plane and two members of the team already in South America everyone’s starting to get excited. I’ve spent the last week or so marching around my house pretending to be an explorer (Exploranor) with all my new kit. I’ve also been ordering all the books we’ll need for the expedition. Flicking through them as they start to arrive has got me really excited and I can’t wait to see all the animals in person!

Lilidh and I have been doing some colourful last minute fundraising that involved us having paint thrown and sprayed at us while we ran 5km. It was really great fun and I think that’s all our fundraising done now so a massive thank you to everyone who’s helped us out with that.

Really can’t wait to get going now, it’s going to be an amazing 9 weeks with a fantastic group of people.
