These are some of my latest expeditions. Most, but not all, are linked to my pursuit of becoming the first person to visit all the Poles of Inaccessibility and as many Points of Inaccessibility as possible.

It's easy to sit down in the comfort of your own home and come up with ideas for exciting expeditions.
But putting everything in place to make it successful is often a different story. So, whilst these are some of the expeditions or adventures that I'm planning in the future, I fully expect some may fall by the wayside and others will spontaneously appear!
