I’m on a whirlwind visit to Finland to visit family, do a bit of press and pick up some missing items for my upcoming expedition to Mount Everest.
Yesterday, I did a couple of interviews with Finnish newspapers along with the mandatory photo shoots. I was happy that most people were focused on the inauguration of the new president and paid little attention to me making snow angels in a central Helsinki park, wearing mountain gear
This morning I was on a breakfast TV show, Huomenta Suomi, which basically means good morning Finland. It was a great experience, although forced us to wake up a bit too early.
Now finally getting a chance to visit my family and then tomorrow its time to fly back to London to pick up the last pieces of gear before returning to Dubai for the last three weeks before I depart for Nepal and start my expedition to Mount Everest.
