Last weekend after 5 months of attempted growth, I finally decided to call time on my beard completing the fourth of my 30 before 30 challenges. In truth it didn't amount to much - as evidenced by the fact that when I went into work on Monday nobody noticed I'd shaved - I really enjoyed growing it and I will definitely be attempting to grow an element of facial furniture again before I turn 30.
For the doubters amongst you and those that are new to the blog here's the best of my beard attempt in pictures:
And there you have it, another challenge complete! More pictures of my feeble beard attempt are available on my instagram account. Next up is a trip to Munich to watch Arsenal play in a European away game next Tuesday before a trip to South Africa in April to tick off a continent that I've never been to before.
Stay tuned for further details, in the meantime you can help me make some progress with a couple of my challenges - I need all the help I can get to reach 30,000 twitter followers whilst I'm also desperately on the look out for other Andy Jacksons!
