Remembering Neil

A dear friend has died much too early Neil Griffiths,
who travelled with me on several expeditions to the Western Desert passed away only 56 years old on15th October 2012. Neil died suddenly in his sleep in his home in Edinburgh.

Neil was a man with a big heart with enough passion to love a far away and different place such as the desert, a man with a kind heart who cared about the simple bedouins in the desert and people in remote places like Nepal.

Neil was a true friend to me, someone who would make you love Scotland just because that was his homeland.

A traveller with a noble heart, that was Neil to me and my bedouin crew.

May your good soul rest in peace. We will remember you.
