Exploring Tibet In Our Kayaks

Bren and Adrian headed out to Tibet earlier this year. Check out their first video instalment.

Exploring Tibet In Our Kayaks
Exploring Tibet In Our Kayaks

Mid-July we left towards Southern Asia and joined an international group of kayakers to go and explore the whitewater in Tibet. Being known as the roof of the world and containing the tallest mountains in the world left us to wonder what rivers must lie deep in the heart of the Himalayas.

There has been a lot of expeditioning going on in countries like Nepal or India, but there are still a lot of places, rivers, and countries which haven’t necessarily been on the list of kayaking expeditions. There have been a few trips to Tibet done by kayakers, the most famous one probably being Scott Lindgrens and Steve Fishers trip to the Tsang Po, but the eastern part still largely remains untouched, just waiting to be explored. So we followed the call and sent it to Tibet.

Thule Wing Bar – Review Update

A change of car has forced me to seek out a new set of roofbars. I wanted the best set of roof bars for my car without going silly on the cost. This time I have went for the Thule Wing bars (aka Aeroblades in the USA). I love cars that can have a set of roof bars bolted to them, either to fittings hidden within the roof or roof rails.

The new Unsponsored HQ paddle wagon/family transporter is a very sensible two litre 184bhp Skoda Octavia VRS estate. It has replaced the BMW 320d Touring shown in these images.

So am I still using these bars with the new car?
