Explorer Series – The Turner Twins
Monday 3rd June 7:01pm - 8:01pm
Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration
Our fourth Mr Fogg’s Explorer Series talk of 2019 sees us welcome famed twin explorers The Turner Twins. Hugo and Ross are two charismatic brothers whose curiosity has set them on an unconventional life path that searches for answers by attempting new quests which combine pioneering medical research and unique studies of historic expeditions. The twins’ adventure passion was ignited when Hugo was involved in a freak diving accident- sustaining a broken neck, aged 17. Three hospitals, a neck reconstruction and many months of recovery later, Hugo was back walking again. In the mix of emotions that followed this near catastrophic accident came an overwhelming drive to challenge themselves in the world’s harshest environments.
This talk shall pose the question ‘how hard was it to be an explorer 100 years ago?’, a question particularly pertinent in Mr Fogg’s and The Turner Twins are best placed to answer it.
