We are happy to announce that Paul Moyle, who had an unfortunate mishap in Nuuk (Greenland) shortly before completing a RTW flight on 2008, has returned to Nuuk and subsequently completed the circuit. He has sent us this touching message: "My round the world challenge was completed yesterday in Bristol at 1230, I must say it is probably the most satisfying day in my life. To have completed this challenge has had me pulling my hair out (not that I have much left) at times but the sense of relief of having become an Earthrounder is palpable!!"
Well done, Paul, for never giving up!
