Here’s a HUGE SHOUTOUT to the wonderful Mr. Thaddeus Lawrence to wish him good luck for his 7-day, 250km march across the Gobi Desert in China, which starts THIS SUNDAY! You can follow the Gobi race here. Photos and videos will be posted daily at the end of each leg of the race. Apparently temperatures are pushing 50 degrees Celsius now. *faints*
But back to Thaddeus — ladies and gents, this is the man who put me in all this Sahara trouble in the first place. If I hadn’t read about his Sahara Race last year in the newspapers, I would not have signed up for this so it’s all thanks (“thanks” being a euphemism here) to his trip photos and presentation skills. You can find out more about Thaddeus and his work as a speaker and life coach at his website.
Good luck, Thaddeus! You are one amazing man! Please race safe and make it back in good shape so we can get the party going. We do not promise confetti or vuvuzelas but a good time will be had by all. :0)
Also, a huuuge thank you to my favourite camera maker, Canon, for the support. It is no understatement when I say that these guys have captured some of the most beautiful moments of my life in the last 5 years. Thank you for making stunning cameras and lenses, for continuously outdoing yourself and beating my high expectations with every shot, and for transforming the fleeting moments into a beautiful eternity.
Let the good times roll!
