What does James say about his expedition experience?
What is the most memorable expedition that you have been on?
An Expedition to the Peruvian Amazon. We really got back to nature, surviving without niceties such as beds, toilets or even tents! Believe me, spider monkeys are scary!
If you were doing your Gold Expedition this year where would you go?
I would definitely head back to Wester Ross. Badrallach Bothy is a great Base-Camp and An Teallach is one of the most spectacular mountains I’ve ever seen.
What is the one luxury item that you always take with you on an expedition?
I’d always take a good book on an expedition. It’s nice to be in a place where TV, phones and WiFi are unavailable.
