THE DOORSTEP MILE: LIVING MORE ADVENTUROUSLY, EVERY DAY

“As much as you probably like the idea of lighting even a little fire under your life, I know how hard it can be to actually make any changes.
We all dream of achieving the extraordinary in our lives, our personal version of trekking to the South Pole. Having failed at that myself, but eventually come out the other end smiling, I now believe there is something even more important than striving for the remarkable. And that is to stop dreaming about an ‘adventure of a lifetime’, and instead pursue a lifetime of living adventurously through a daily pledge to push myself a little, scare myself now and then, and remain curious.” Alastair

Endurance adventure athlete Sean Conway broke the World Record for the fastest crossing of Europe by bicycle unsupported - an astonishing feat.

Starting on April 2018 in Cabo de Roca on the west coast of Portugal, Sean cycled 4,500 miles across Europe, finishing at the Russian town of Ufa. 

As those who follow Sean's adventures will guess, Sean did not do this the easy way!  The successful attempt was unsupported and Sean carried all of his kit with him along the way.

Still only in her mid-twenties, Laura led a team of two other women, Ness Knight and Pip Stewart, through tough terrain to find the source on foot and then paddled down the river negotiating rapids and waterfalls through stunning jungle with rich biodiversity regularly spotting caiman, jaguars and various species of monkey along the way.
