It’s hot hot hot! We’ve walked around 13km in the scorching heat so far today. I think a few are starting to wonder what they’ve got themselves involved in! But Team St Luke’s are sticking together and supporting each other through.

We’ve stopped for a very welcome hot lunch in the middle of a sand dune. They manage to cook better meals here than I do in a fully equipped kitchen!

Day 3. Slept amongst a chorus of snoring last night, but the stars were amazing! We’re packing up camp and after breakfast, we’ll start trekking.

Everyone is very excited to be finally on this journey, it’s simply incredible.
