This is Georgia. She is really excited about going to Sikkim. She is looking forward to the orchids, culture, and food. Only 2 days to go
This is Ike Shackleton who is determined to follow in the footsteps of the explorer Shackleton. The only difference is that he is going to the Himalayas not the South Pole. This is the Coelogyne stricta which although it doesn’t smell Ike had to check.
The count down continues. 2 days and 2 hours until we fly to Himalayas. This is Matt, who will be celebrating his 16th birthday out there. This is Matt’s favourite orchid which he describes as ‘the little lellow one’
This is the one and only Heather Limond. She is our only ginger member of the team and it wouldn’t be the same without her. This is a Dendrobium delicatum which we hope to see and smell out there.
The count down begins. It is 2 days and 20 hours until we say farewell to the UK. I am Zoe Barnes one of the seven students going on this amazing trip to the Himalayas. The Coelogyne cristata next to me should be out in full flower when we are there.
