  • Jane Wilson-Howarth


As a child Dr Jane Wilson-Howarth dreamed of intrepid adventures, but she didn’t really start exploring until – aged 22 and with a zoology degree - she organised an expedition to record the wildlife of Himalayan caves. Long, convoluted story, but this led to a medical qualification, a husband, many more mountain trips and even some useful child-survival work in various remote parts of Asia. She now lives in Cambridge where she works as a GP, is medical director of a travel immunisation clinic and teaches on, among other things, an international health course. Jane writes extensively on travel and health. Her website www.wilson-howarth.com includes a photo gallery relating to this memoir; she tweets as @longdropdoc.
