Back in the UK

Friday 31st May 2013 – The long journey from Kathmandu to London via Doha commenced as planned late on the night of the 30th and passed without incident. I was unable to sleep on the flights but arrived back in the UK surprisingly untired.

I was greeted at Heathrow by my fiancee Sarah who came bearing gifts. It was nice to be met by her there. The last few months have been very hard for her so it was great to be reunited finally.

We then picked up a hire car so that we could head away for some quality time together. The first thing that I had upon return to the UK was a pint of milk and a Gregg’s sausage roll. I had not had any milk since March. It is surprising what you miss to eat and drink when you are away for so long but it is so good to enjoy them upon a return.

We dropped off my expedition equipment at Sarah’s sister’s house in Southampton and then headed off to Devon for a long weekend of quality time together. When will the beard go or should it stay?
