Coaching at a distance

My iPhone rang on Tuesday evening as I drove over Bodmin Moor – and there was Ian Wilson, Co-Founder of Bridge2Aid, wanting to schedule a coaching call later in the week.
I asked him where he was calling from and he gave me map co-ordinates.

I suppose I ought not to be – but I’m amazed at the technology that allows him to chat to me, from there, to where I am.
Car to car.
The wilds of East Africa to the wilds of Cornwall.
I asked Ian to send me a photograph of what he was looking at from his (stationary) car whilst we spoke.
Not quite what I was seeing.
