GRAND ADVENTURES: Dream Big, Plan Quick, Go Explore

ALASTAIR HUMPHREYS    Book Number: 81906    Product format: Paperback

The author has to be the most qualified person to produce this book. He has cycled the world in four years, 46,000 miles, 60 countries and five continents, walked across southern India, rowed across the Atlantic, run marathons in the Sahara and even trekked 120 miles around the M25! When he is not engaged in an adventurous pursuit he is writing about those of his own or others and here he has brought together accounts from almost 100 people who got up and did it - the grand adventure. Firstly he addresses the real-life things that get in the way, things like time, money, career, family commitments - you will be amazed at how easily the majority of these seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome. Then we meet the people and share their experiences and hard-won words of wisdom. Here are all sorts of people from all kinds of backgrounds and of all ages - adventuring is not just for the young and commitment-free! Here are trips in literally every part of the world made by foot, bicycle (including one by penny-farthing!), motorbike, car, kayak, yacht, skis, swimming, donkey and even skateboard made by people who are the same as the rest of us, they just made that little extra effort to push themselves. Fortunately they all remembered to pack their cameras too, so here are over 250 inspiring colour photos, many full- and double-page. 254pp softback.
