JellyBean 034 with Andrew Peacock
Have you ever wondered what it is like to be the medic on an expedition. A serious expedition.
Some of the closest people in my life are always teasing me about being into my “Adrenaline Sports”. I’m not involved in any “Extreme Sports” at all.
Andrew Peacock is.
We are talking about Mount Everest, Antarctica, Jungles and stuff. He has a fascinating career which he combines with a career in professional photography.
Jealousy is acceptable at this point.
Andrew has had more than a few unexpected adventures too. Have you ever hear of the Russian ship Akademik Shokalskiy? The one that got caught in the pack ice in Antarctica?
Andrew was on it. He was on the ice. He was watching the rescue ships get caught in the pack.
And there’s more. Andrew is a humble understated guy but it is clear when you are with him that he is an outdoor enthusiast and an outdoor athlete first. From there he has carved out a remarkable career. It is not all pictures of penguins and exotic locations. There is a lot of hard work and hard marching too.
It is another example of the amazing things you can do with a qualification as a paramedic, doctor or nurse (footloosefotography)
Do something you love.
Do not do something you do not love.
