[INVITATION] 'You only live once' by Khoo Swee Chiow, 15 February. Tickets available now.

Dear Geographers,

Khoo Swee Chiow, Singapore’s best known adventurer and explorer, will give a talk entitled “You Only Live Once” to the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)’s Singapore branch on Friday 15 February 2013.

Swee Chiow is a hugely inspiring and engaging adventurer. He describes mountains as his first love, and has climbed the highest peak on each of the seven continents (including Everest three times!). But he has also been to both poles, swum the Malacca Straits, and cycled, roller-bladed and kayaked his way around Asia, setting several records. Swee Chiow will draw from his experience of over 40 expeditions to talk about how and why he does it, what he has learnt along the way and what he has planned for his next mind-bogglingly ambitious adventure.
