Looking back on adventures like these can be warm and lovely but they don’t come around every week! Both my long distance bike trips happened because I quit my jobs, and both times it took me a good few months to get new ones. The highs of travel and brilliant freedom are a bliss you can never forget, and that is what makes it so hard to get back into the grind. Still, I hope this video inspires someone to ride the long way home tonight, remember you can make adventures just by walking home the wrong way.
Before I met up with Tally tonight, I slipped into a cafe, didn’t buy anything but tried to read my book, the chap next to me told me all about his crazy life. He had been in films, in advertising, had met the queen many times, bafta nominee and phd in psychology! Sounds bonkers but it’s true. Strike up a convo with your neighbours and find the crazies close to home, you don’t have to cycle or walk through exotic places to find great connections and stories.
