News & Events

I regularly give talks about my journey. Past events have included the Wilderness Lectures, The Royal Geographical Society, Basecamp Festival, The Adventure Travel Show, The Explorer’s Club and The Kendall Mountain Festival roadshow.

I also lead workshops around bicycle travel, living adventurously and travel writing, and I’m a regular at storytelling nights like Natural Born Storytellers, Spark and The Moth. To book me to speak at your event please contact me.
