My guest on The Dolor Factor this week is Lola Odujinrin. Lola was born in South London and moved to Nigeria when he was little. He developed a fascination with flying from a young age, and qualified for his pilot’s licence aged 20. Now, after his solo around-the-world trip, he works as a pilot, and a motivational speaker, and believes that “nothing is impossible if you have a vision and act with purpose”.

His interview made me think about how some peoples’ fears are other peoples’ passion and I talk about this in Delia’s Diary with my account of a petrifying air experience.
