Alastair's new book Grand Adventures published 24 March 2016
So what’s a GRAND ADVENTURE – it is the most life-changing, career-enhancing, personality-forging, fun adventure of your life.
Following on from his popular Microadventures, in Grand Adventures Alastair Humphreys shines a spotlight on the real-life things that get in the way: stuff like time, money or your other commitments. Grand Adventures is also crammed with hard-won wisdom from people who have actually been there and done that: by boat and boot, car and kayak, bicycle and motorbike. People who had one epic trip then returned to normal life, or who got bitten so badly by the bug that they devoted their life to the pursuit of adventure. Young people, old people. Men, women. Mates, couples, families. Extraordinary, inspiring people. People like you.
Saving your pennies, overcoming inertia, generating momentum, getting out the front door: if you want it enough, you can do it.
'As an 18-year-old working on boats in the Caribbean, keen yachtsman Geoff Holt made up his mind that he would sail around the world one day.
'A short time later, a diving accident changed his life forever, leaving him paralysed from the chest down. Rather than letting the tragedy end his dream, however, Holt, 49, has spent three decades working towards finally achieving that goal.
“Being quadriplegic may limit my physical capabilities but it doesn’t moderate my aspirations,” he said. “I think a project like this is unique, it is an example of the power of the human spirit.”
