After returning safely home, my completion of the Seven Summits was celebrated in many ways. As can be seen on the ‘News coverage page‘ the story got good coverage in the local and regional press.
At work and several working groups I’m on, it was celebrated with huge cakes shaped after Everest (apparently, there was great concern about my weight loss !).
It culminated on September 3rd when the Rijnland Chapter of the Royal Dutch Mountaineering Society awarded me an honorary membership.
