Last October I gave a talk about my Explore More journey to friends and ex-colleagues at the Southbank Centre in London. There was a strong turnout of friendly faces to hear the 2-hour talk in which I managed to cover the first 6 months from London to Tehran.
Unfortunately, we ran out of time to cover the whole adventure (I would have talked for 5 hours otherwise) but I think everyone left with a much better understanding of my time on the road.
Stay tuned for further updates in the near future…
After 3 months on the road it’s time to share with you some of the wonderful experiences I’ve had so far.
Although I’ve filmed a lot of the journey for personal record, most of this footage was never intended to be seen by anyone else until I realised that it’s the best way to share what I’ve been up to with my friends. Constantly saying ‘awesome’ and ‘amazing’ to everyone doesn’t really cover it.
The first of these videos captures some random and rather silly moments during the 10 days from London to Nuremberg. These first tentative steps across the Netherlands & Germany seem like an absolute age away already as so much has happened since. In revisiting these recordings I can clearly see the uncertainty and doubt of the task ahead thinly disguised behind my surface level observations and silly jokes. It also allows me to reflect on how I’ve changed throughout the journey and I hope that the future videos will allow you to see these changes as well.
I’ll follow this up with parts 2 & 3 and some more interviews in the next few days.
I hope it makes you smile.
