The Lost Hecklers

A combination of a low-show on Friday due to bad conditions and the fact that everyone is really getting into the idea of heading off somewhere hot at some point this year gave the Destinations Travel Show a real buzz yesterday.

I gave my talk, ‘The Forgotten Journey’, on behalf of the Royal Geographical Society. The audience clearly had one or two enthusiasts amongst it as the questions were even more interesting and perceptive than usual.

Some of my family live nearby and had threatened to turn up and heckle at the back. One small problem was that they intially headed to the wrong part of Earls Court and only arrived to hear the second half of the talk. There may be a opportunity for some weekend work there, either for me or some sharp Tom-Tom salesman.
