So I disappeared off the face of the earth…

Completely plausible explanation. You see, I fell into a crevasse whilst I was trekking through the Peruvian Andes and just managed to make it back to civilisation by the skin of my teeth!

But I made it back alive, and in honour of my dedication and will to live, I propose that we never speak of my disappearance from the blogosphere again :)

Here’s me being rescued by a gentleman that looked suspiciously similar to Jake Gyllenhaal.

Don’t believe me?

Wait and see.
