Been follow the journey of Solar Impulse for a while now and it’s great to hear that Bertrand Piccard has landed safely. Between LGBT being part of the Anzac Day celebrations, the signing of the Paris Climate Treaty or Type 1 Diabetes giving up its secrets it can be hard to choose a  favourite story. However, I’m a […]
