Hi everyone, it’s Fiona here.
The last few days have been pretty busy with catching up with family, friends and a bit of media. I still don’t think we’re really all back yet – part of us is still in the Himalayas! From here in Melbourne the whole experience seems a bit surreal.
Anyway, to celebrate our trip and share our adventure, we’ve decided to have a party. We’ll be showing some photos and video footage of our trip (assuming we can get it edited in time).
If you’re in Melbourne, available on Saturday June 17th and would like to help us celebrate, please send us an email so that we can give you the details. It will be a fairly casual affair and people can come and go as they like from 5pm onwards (kids are most welcome).
Although there are many of you that we haven’t met, we feel like we know you and would be delighted if you can come along.
In the meantime, we’re still unpacking luggage (it was lost in transit for a couple of days but we have it all now), giving our washing machine a good workout, sorting through our 1500 odd photos, dealing with bills, insurance companies (we were broken into while away), and catching up with email and other admin tasks.
Once we have a bit more time to reflect, we’ll also be writing more about our trip and some of our learnings (for those people considering climbing Everest or other peaks) plus posting heaps of photos.
Hoping to see you on the 17th.
