7 year drought.....

It is 7 years today, 26 September 2009, since my little town of Bundanoon here in the Southern Highlands of NSW stopped selling that environmental scourge and 'pure' marketing wonder; bottled water. A day in which the whole town came out, we launched our drinking fountains and celebrated good old tap water.

Educational and Influential??

Those of you who came to a talk in recent weeks or ones before will have heard me speak of how my primary school teacher reconnected with me, after 45 years, in a very generous (for Save the Children Australia) way during my Med journey. Now my time at the University of Bradford Management School 30 years ago has resulted in a surprising international award.

Yesterday AACSB International, the world's largest business education network representing over 750 University and Business Schools worldwide, announced their 30 Influential Leaders for 2016. To be among such a group of high achievers worldwide in the fields of business and social good is somewhat humbling to say the least.

Ice trees and grass skis........

(Reposted from below after photos mysteriously disappeared!)

Been guiding Pete for over a dozen years now for a few days each winter seeking out backcountry runs. Marginal conditions last weekend meant for a 'mixed' terrain experience in a new area for him and his first hut visits.

Thanks........and the book

To everyone who came along to one of my talks in the past couple of weeks. Fun night in Canberra to finish current series last night, fittingly held at the Hellenic Club (given I spent more time in Greece than any other Mediterranean country).

Huge thanks to World Expeditions for organising the tour and to Paddy Pallin and Osprey Packs for supporting it.

My book 'Mediterranean - a year around a charmed and troubled sea' should be published by the end of the year. Online pre publication orders available very soon.

Who the hell are you?

It was fun choosing those 5 places around the world but answering 'Who are you?' on ABC Perth a bit harder.

Looking forward to the Perth leg of the tour tomorrow

Was fun deciding the 5 places. What would you choose?

A recovery day today in Western Australia's Margaret River (after riding the Dwellingup MTB Classic race yesterday) - good coffee, great trails for a warm down, more coffee, watching big wave surfers and drinking fine local wines. With Liam Doherty

If it's Thursday it must be Melbourne.....

Tonight's talk at Mantra on Russell. Tickets from http://bit.ly/HuwMelbourne

A Mustang must........

I'm super excited to be leading a mountain bike trip to the Kingdom of Mustang in Nepal next March. It has been too long since I did a Himalayan trip and this one with World Expeditions should be a cracker; the first time they've run a MTB tour into Mustang.

As Italy deals with the terrible consequences of the recent earthquake it is worth remembering the devastating one in Nepal last year. More than anything Nepal needs people to visit and help rebuild the economy.

Check it out and treat yourself to a spectacular cycling holiday

My thoughts are with the people of Umbria in Italy following today's earthquake. For the past 5 years my business Wild Horizons has run mountain bike tours that pass very close to the affected region. It is a beautiful part of the world and a tragedy for those affected.
