 If any of you have been watching the recent Walking the Himalayas series, you’ve probably become as obsessed with Levison Wood as I have. The more observant of you may even have noticed he is one of my Yespirations, which was after his equally great Walking the Nile series. So when some friends of ours suggested we go to one of his talks in London I was obviously on board.

The talk that we went to was at the Royal Geographical Society in London and was a perfectly sized, fairly intimate venue. Levison was funny, interesting and charming talking about his gap year as an eighteen year old that set off his obsession with travel, his subsequent army days to fuel his travelling with a career and eventually his documentary pitches that were picked up by channel 4.

He signifies everything that we stand for here at Year of the Yes – he made us believe that with careful planning you can visit anywhere in the world that you want to, and his passion for exploring is contagious. It has certainly reaffirmed my desire to visit new places.

So, if you haven’t yet watched his series then I urge you to, as well as reading his 2 books about his adventures packed full of witty anecdotes and even more adventures that you don’t see on tv.

And if you love Levison as much as I do, then why not get yourself along to one of his talks. His website is always updated with the latest talks so keep your eyes peeled. And if that’s not incentive enough, did I mention we had a celebrity or two in the audience? Well it appears that Dermot O’Leary and Prince Harry are both fans too. So don’t just take my word for it, take our adventurous young Royal’s….
