Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
Sunday Times and Guardian journalist Leon McCarron will visit the University of Kent on October 3 to talk about his experiences during two epic journeys through the world's toughest environments.
He cycled 14,500 miles from New York to Hong Kong, and then trekked 3,000 miles from Mongolia to Hong Kong - filming his fights with extreme cold, bears, tarantulas and jungles for National Geographic.
The talk we be held at Lecture Theatre 1 in Woolf College, Canterbury, from 6pm. It will be a great chance to put the new shuttle service (and your shorthand) to the test. It should make a good story for your portfolios.
