Let's Knock Down Walls, Not Build Them

Peace in Cyprus, has the opportunity to show the world that there is another way. We don't always have to point fingers and seek out a scapegoat. Even where there is little hope, and after 42 years, many Cypriots had lost hope, with determination and drive, anything is possible. I wish the leaders and those involved in the final stages of these peace talks endless luck. If they are successful, it will not only mean a great deal to my family and fellow Cypriots, it will also mean a lot to a world that at times feels like it has lost all hope.

The Mediterranean's Hidden Treasure

The mountains of Northern Cyprus were formed by earthquakes centuries ago. The ridge has kept the rain that sweeps across the Mediterranean from falling any further south. The landscape on one side is considerably more rich and green than that on the other. The trail drops down on each side and it offers two strikingly different landscapes, both harbouring a wide variety of wildlife. Foxes and in my case snakes.

It's been an extraordinary experience; difficult, hot, cold, lonely, funny, emotional and mentally and physically exhausting in a way I couldn't have imagined. But crucially also hugely rewarding, not just for myself, but also in the raising of the money for Walking With The Wounded, which I hope will only increase (£18k to date). And, thankfully, only truly scary once or twice...
