Best place you’ve ever been:
The sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia is spectacular place steeped in adventurous history and wildlife. With zero permanent residents it is a wild place where mother nature rules the land with an unforgiving fist.
One piece of kit you can’t live without in the wild:
My spoon – I have an extra long handled spoon which lives in my top pocket (for easy access). It might sound menial and irrelevant, but my spoon signifies hot food and some of the most pleasurable meals I have ever had… from a packet obviously!
