I finally got round to editing the footage I took from my expedition to Nepal. Enjoy!
In August 2017 I cycled around the coast of Cyprus. All of the photographs from this adventure were taken using my phone (Samsung Galaxy S7) and GoPro. This was to reduce the weight and make taking photographs easier whilst on the bike. This is a collection of the photographs from the 6-day adventure. I hope […]
Most adventures will have some cost (although it is possible to go on a brilliant adventure for free). There are many different ways to get the money needed to fund your expeditions. Grants are just one of the methods of getting funding. I was surprised to discover so many grants were available. There are a […]
After five days of trekking through epic valleys, pine tree covered mountains and fast-flowing rivers, we split into two groups. The group of 12 climbers were to stay in the town of Kakkot and attempt to climb the mountain of Putha Hiunchuli at 7,246 metres. We were to continue trekking and aim to complete a […]
The weather couldn’t be any better for the first few days of the trek. We had the pleasure of clear skies and strong sunshine, accompanied by a cool, refreshing breeze. I wore shorts for the first two days and couldn’t quite believe that I was above 2000 metres. Sun cream was needed to protect ourselves […]
Dolpa is one of the most remote regions of the Himalaya. Only open to foreigners from 1989, it is far away from the standard tourist routes in Nepal. Throughout the expedition, I was stunned by the beauty of the mountains, the kindness of the local people and the amount of wildlife thriving in this often […]
A tremendous bang abruptly wakes me from a deep sleep. There is panic on the coach. People are shouting in Arabic, a baby is screaming. It’s 1 am and I’m stranded in the Sinai desert on the outskirts of the port town Suez. I’m not supposed to be here. In this area, there is a […]
I joined the Army with the sole intention of deploying on operations and leading soldiers into combat. My opportunity to deploy on operations came in 2014 when I was deployed to Helmand Province in Afghanistan. In 2014, the large-scale combat operations the British Army had been conducting were coming to an end and the government […]

Over Christmas, they run a campaign called ‘Walking Home for Christmas’. People are encouraged to walk home from their place of work, in groups or as individuals, to […]
I have finally bothered to edit the footage I took from last summers Busking to Belfast adventure. Your comments and thoughts are greatly appreciated. Enjoy!
Ethiopia is a beautiful country with bags to see, eat and do. It is also crazy at times and can be frustrating to the traveller not used to the African way of life. In this post, I will write about my experience after spending four days in Ethiopia. I will write about some of the brilliant things […]
This was my first real solo adventure. I usually have a Platoon of men to command or a friend to travel with. This time my partner was the bicycle and a ukulele. Cycling through Yorkshire was a real unexpected highlight of the trip. As a Yorkshire man, I almost take the beauty of my home […]
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters in the end” Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness I often spend my days dreaming up ideas for new adventures. One of my favourite parts of a new adventure is the planning phase. Checking routes […]
“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” Sherlock Holmes author, Arthur Conan Doyle, Scientific American, 1896 After spending the […]
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did” T.E. Lawrence, […]
