India Calling…

…well, tweeting, that is!  India Expedition leaders Gav Maguire and Dolores Kelly are old hat at the ‘intrepid explorers’ thing but that does not mean that they do not get just as excited now as when they led their first group of students across the plains of the Serengeti… or the peaks of Andes… or the lakes of Tanzania.   Something of the ‘Dr. Livingstone’ perennially appears in the personalities of Gav and Dolores, and their enthusiasm and love for adventure radiate across continents.  The only change is that we used to have to wait for the occasional garbled landline call (a wire-based communications system) or a postcard (sort of like a printed ‘snapchat’).  Now we get continuous updates via Twitter and can track the group’s every step through GPS.  The group have already made steady progress on both the expeditionary and community development aspects of their trip, completing a 4,300 metre climb near Manali and starting work at the  Mount Everest School.  More news to come but in the meantime keep an eye on the links above and the pics below!
