Donations are coming in…

Monday 11th June

Having officially launched the blog this afternoon, we are very excited to announce our very first donation to our ‘Expedition Fundraising Campaign’

A BIG thank you to Robert Jones of Fort Myers, Florida – a fellow traveller, who Florio met down in Mexico a couple of years back.

There will be a limited edition fine art print winging its way to you, Bob, once we’ve completed the expedition

We’re now a step forward, one paddle in the water, towards being in this river, thanks to you!
