  1. 1


    The two adventures that stick in my mind from this year are Al Humphreys walking around the M25 and Ed Stafford (finishing) walking the length of the Amazon. Two very different trips but both brilliant in their own way.

    Several of my favourite adventures of 2010 have involved swimming: two memorable ones being between continents (crossing the Hellespont between Europe and Asia) and exploring my local river in Lancashire.

    Jessie Watson’s incredible and historic solo circumnavigation of the world. There are lots of youngsters out there doing crazy things, but this young woman is in a league of her own – her journey was extraordinary. From Oz and childhood to womanhood and the world. For a 16 yr old, her blog was immense – a great virtual journey for those of us on shore.

    Ed Stafford and his Amazon trek – epic. And such a top guy with it.

    Erden Eruc rowing solo across the Indian Ocean – becoming the first person to have rowed all three major oceans.

    For my own Top 3 – they have mostly been waterbased:
    Bath2London on Stand Up Paddleboards with Dave Cornthwaite – escaping from a swan called Saddam, saving a life, encouraging lots of people out onto the water with us, finding the traveller who paddled off with our boards…all set against days and days of sunshine.

    Seakayaking training week in Menorca with Justine Curgenven – hideaway campsites under full moons next to glassy seas, getting boshed in the surf, an endurance crossing to Mallorca into a cracking headwind and the miles and miles of Mediterranean coastline.

    Cycling back from giving a talk in York and not wanting to spend another wet night outside, so cycling 140 miles in one go with full panniers. I was tired :)
