Chairman’s Fundraising Bike Ride

tania-noakesOur Chairman of Trustees, Air Vice-Marshal N J E Kurth CBE FRGS is raising funds for the Ulysses Trust by attempting the Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100 on 29th July 2018.

Nick said, “I am taking part in the Ride London ‘100 miler’. Significantly, whilst I have undertaken lots of cycling I have never ridden 100 miles in one day."

  • So I’ve finally finished the first draft of my new book ‘Arabia: A Journey through the heart of the Middle East’ which will be published on 1st November 2018 by @hodderbooks. Very excited to see the sleek cover design and incredible illustration by the magnificent and unbelievably talented @ellajackson.art check out her work! I think the image, colours and detail perfectly encapsulates the complexities of the region. Now just need to get editing... #syria #iraq #kuwait #UAE #Dubai #Oman #Emptyquarter #yemen #somalia #somaliland #djibouti #saudiarabia #jordan #palestine#westbank #israel #damascus #lebanon #arabianjourney #arabia #books #travelwriting #middleeast
  • Finally here it is... a little teaser from the forthcoming Arabia documentary, coming out in the autumn! This is what I’ve been up to since last September. Everyone said it wasn’t possible, this is the biggest and most ambitious thing I’ve ever attempted: An expedition to circumnavigate the entire Arabian Peninsula including Syria, Iraq, the Gulf States, Oman, Yemen, the Horn of Africa, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Palestine, Israel and Lebanon. More info soon but if you want to hear about it in person I’m doing a UK theatre tour in October/ November. Tickets selling fast so get one while you can! Thank you @bonzka for cutting the trailer. #arabianjourney #middleeast #arabia #iraq #syria #jordan #oman #isreal #yemen #saudiarabia #lebanon #uae #dubai #leica #oliversweeney #belstaff #iwcbigpilot

  • Reflecting on some awesome routes on unique and characterful mountains... the Dolomites is such a very special place! Reading @altaviaamelia ‘s book, spirits of the dolomites,  brings the history to life and has added extra depth to my love of this  wonderful land. ❤️ #spiritsofthedolomites #strongwomen #ameliaedwards #dolomitehistory #altaviaamelia #ava #tanadelors #valdizoldo #newaltavia #newadventures #fascinatingjourney #nextbigadventure #offthebeatenpath
