An evening with Sir Ranulph Fiennes

A group of Fourth and Fifth Year geographers enjoyed an evening with Sir Ranulph Fiennes this week in Winchester. Students asked a number of interesting and thought-provoking questions, which allowed them to gain a wonderful insight into his life as the 'world's greatest living explorer'.  Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE is the only man alive ever to have travelled around the Earth’s circumpolar surface and the oldest Briton to reach the summit of Everest and complete the six-day 251km Marathon des Sables in the Sahara desert.
