Have your say

Adventurer James Thomas, who is attempting to walk from Edinburgh to Dunedin in New Zealand, has been nominated for the Berghaus Adventure Challenge.

Mr Thomas set off on the challenge on Saturday. It will take him through 15 countries on a route of more than 12,000 miles. He expects the trip to take more than two years to complete, and will be raising money for UNICEF.

The Adventure Challenge sees people nominated each month for the chance to win £1000 towards their expedition. You can vote at
