Last week we profiled Kai Fitchen for Nightjar Adventurer 2013, and I saw that he had been a member of the Mike Horn Pangaea Expedition to the Himalayas. Naturally, I wanted to know more about this expedition, but in a busy week some things are easily forgotten.
I then had the good fortune to obtain a copy of Cape Union Mart's official magazine - The Intrepid Explorer - and as luck would have it, the first page I opened it to had a full-page photo of Pangaea! So, as I learnt and for those of you who are as curious, Mike Horn has been sailing around the world on Pangaea, a 35m yacht, non-stop for the last 4 years with the goal of taking his years of experience as one of the world's greatest modern day explorers, and inspiring young adults around the world to want to explore our planet, and hopefully thus be motivated to preserve it. Well, judging by what Kai has achieved, Mike certainly has inspired! You can read more about the expedition at www.mikehorn.com, and you can get the full article on the Intrepid Explorer Facebook page.
Not heard of The Intrepid Explorer yet? That might be because the first edition flew out of Cape Union Mart stores like gold dust. It's well worth a read, so keep an eye out for the next edition in April.
