Sophie Neary

Country of residence: UK
Adventure: Nepalese Altitude Treks
Dates: Oct-Dec 2017

The first of my treks was a 21 day tour of the entire Annapurna circuit, crossing the iconic Thorong La Pass (5416m) and began on October 14th 2017. I then flew to the Himalayas to take on a quieter and more challenging haute route 19 day Everest Base Camp trek (average altitude 4,300m). From the heart of the Sherpa homeland via less trodden trails of the Cho La Glacier, I reached the Kala Patthar at the foot of the highest mountain on earth (5,644m) on November 16th.

Felix von Aulock

Country of residence: UK
Adventure: Exploring active volcanos
Dates: Jan-Mar 2018

I am a volcanologist – so I study the science of volcanoes! I usually do that in a laboratory but this can’t replace visiting real volcanoes. In January I’ll be visiting active volcanoes in Mexico and Guatemala, and will be flying a drone over the volcano to measure changes during eruptions. It’s going to be hard work, hauling gear through the jungle and up the volcano, but it’s what I love about my job: visiting the most exciting landscapes on earth!

Adventure Completed

  • 6th January 2018 – Felix Von Aulock (AKA @pheeph) took the Red transporter from Sophie and continued the #TeamTransporterRed adventure
  • 7th January 2018 – Felix leaves for Mexico to study active volcanos with drones and UV sensing tools. His project aimed to study the gaseous eruptions as they happen in the field. Felix began this work at Volcan de Colima
  • 16th January 2018 – Felix then moved on to Ceboruco Volcano. Here he studied lava domes alongside students from the Universidad de Colima
  • 19th January 2018 – Felix travelled to Quetzaltenango in Guatemala to collect data from the active dome of Santiaguito. Here he used UV cameras to look at the sulphur dioxide and ash content of the volcano plumes. The data collected will help Felix and his team to understand why they explode rather than just slowly produce lava flows and fumaroles
  • 22nd January 2018 – Was the last day in the field for Felix at Santiaguito. Drone fly overs revealed the viscous magma oozing out, accompanied by smaller and bigger explosions when the gases needed to escape


Emma Smith

Country of residence: UK
Adventure: Indonesian Wanderlust
Dates: Jun-Aug 2018

I’m currently a student and spend pretty much all my spare time travelling with money I’ve saved up. My main interests in travel are hiking, wildlife and finding awesome views which I’ll be incorporating into my trip next year. Experiencing new cultures also plays a big part in my search for adventure. Via Singapore, I’ll be exploring Indonesia by waterfalls, temples, volcano hiking and snorkelling.
