If you like, tell us 1 thing about yourself / or tell us something interesting: I am planning on undetaking a charity trek to the base camp of Mt. Everest in October this year. This will be my second attempt as 4 years ago I undertook the same trek and reached 5,000 metres when I had to turn back due to being severely dehydrated. Base camp is 5,500 metres and this time I am determined to make it.
