“I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your talk at the KMF on Sunday, inspirational and thought-provoking. I have no doubt that it will be a catalyst for me to go to the Alps, instead of just planning to. I actually do loads of outdoor activities, but can make excuses to avoid big trips. So many thanks for providing that spark.”
