I started out at boarding school at the ripe old age of 6, and the outdoors was a big part of our lives. Cannot say I took to it straight away but the thrill of going out camping and climbing mountains certainly grew on me over the years. As time passed, hanging out with friends who loved the outdoors just got me doing more and more stuff. From learning to kayak in the ‘pristine’ waters near India Gate (and putting that experience to use on the Ganges) to climbing in the Alps with the finest of French wines tucked away in your pack, the experiences just got richer. Now I am hooked – marathons, triathlons, the ‘Seven Summits’, skiing, all are fair game .
