    I wrote this at a very low point, a real ‘toys out of the pram’ moment, when all I wanted to do was lie down and cry. Two months later and sitting in my office, I can’t believe it was THAT hard, and would give anything to be back there.

    I still don’t subscribe to the view that adventure necessarily has to be painful – but a little bit of struggle makes the memories. For me, the best adventures are those where you are reliant on your own human power to get you places – which unfortunately often brings sore knees, shoulders and tears.
