By the age of 18, I have been to two expeditions and have climbed in three of the greater ranges. My drive for adventures was becoming an obsession and all I could think of was mountains... I have spent my 18th birthday celebration stranded on the toilet behind awkward cowboy doors right across the kitchen of a third world restaurant. I had CocaCola and three rolls of toilet paper on me... Next day we would be embarking for basecamp. It was definitely a birthday to remember!
