Former pupil in solo Asian expedition
Former pupil, 25-year-old Oli France, is currently somewhere along the mountainous spine of Asia on a solo expedition from Hong Kong to Istanbul.
Titled "Tale of the Mountain Folk", Oli, a seasoned adventurer having spent the last few years travelling around the world on various expeditions, began his adventure in January this year setting off across the mountains of Asia where he will cross ten countries experiencing all manner of terrain and many cultures.
The aim of his travels is to document the many diverse cultures of those who live in the mountains. He's doing this through video, photos, and updating his blog, website and social media - links to which we'll post at the bottom.
Oli will eventually cross Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Turkey.
We wish Oli the very best in this epic adventure and we're sure he'll be an inspiration to many others who follow in his footsteps.
