You wait all week for a blog post and then four come along all at once! Sorry for the flood but remember that I am a teacher and only function on other levels on a weekend…
An interesting nudge from Iain Harper earlier this week (see Iain’s own blog by clicking here). He had received an email from Alastair Humphreys (how did you manage that Iain?), the guy who cycled around the World in late 2001 taking two years and then wrote two books about the experience. He is now a motivational speaker and all round “adventurer”. If I am Vauxhall Conference, he is Barclays Premiership. Anyway, here is the email that Iain has received;
As a fellow cycling enthusiast I wonder if you’d be willing to help me drum up some people for an event I’m arranging in London. The premise is simple: a big room, a bar, and a room full of people dreaming of adventure or who have been on adventures. A chance to ask questions and answer questions: http://www.alastairhumphreys.com/2011/03/plan-expedition-2/
If you follow the link, Alastair gives quite a bit of extra information about the event which takes place on the 7th April at 6.30pm at the Royal Geographical Society (on the corner between the Albert Hall & Imperial College) in London. It’s tempting as I do fall into the bracket of both having done a little adventure (Eurovelo 5) and planning another one (Eurovelo 8). I would imagine that I would be outshone by bearded students planning to cross the Siberian plains on a space hopper but it’s worth considering. I wonder if Iain is interested is going along too?
