Libyan Sahara

Just back after a fantastic and physically intense fortnight in the Libyan desert. This photo of me scaling a dune was taken after nine hours trekking. Every little helps at this stage of the day and so you’ll notice that I’m walking on the firmer windward side of the ridge.

It was a great test of skills and opportunity to research. I learned plenty during my time with the Tuareg and, outrageous to claim so I whisper it quietly, I may even have taught them one or two things. I return with over 1000 photos, a packed notebook, some video, some sound recordings and tired legs after averaging over 15 miles a day on foot. A real natural navigation treasure trove, that I will be sharing over the coming months, but now it is time to face the email inbox etc.
