Seattle Airport, Washington

I am on the move again – off to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro. Altitude training may not be essential preparation for a very sea-level challenge, but it will be a good cardio workout and an unmissable opportunity to see the famous snows of Kilimanjaro before they are lost forever to global warming. It has been estimated that at the current rate of shrinkage the snows will be gone within the next 30 years.

And of course, ironically, by flying there I am doing my bit to hasten their demise… Air travel is the most environmentally damaging form of transport. Mea culpa.
