It’s time for another adventure. I have had the itch for some time now after my mammoth solo motorbike adventure in 2007.
I have spent lots of time considering what to do next. The ideas have been as varied as they have been extravagant: paddle the SA coast, swim a river, jet ski a river or the coast, climb a mountain etc. but I have a family, a business and sanity prevailed. There is always the question of the financial and time constraints an expedition places on the adventurer and those closest to him/her.
Over time the idea settled and watching Levison Wood (no relation) walking through the most incredible places solidified the plan.
There were other motivations that drove me to settle on this idea. Public speaking and promoting my beautiful South Africa.
I have been drawn more and more towards public speaking and using my expeditions and adventures to motivate, encourage or simply entertain people. For some reason I feel having two adventures to reference is ideal. So, this is research in a sense for speaking engagements. Feel free to contact me for appointments.
As far as promoting South Africa. The United States has the Appalachian Trail. A little further than the coastline of South Africa but world renowned. People from all over the world walk all or part of the A.T. and it has created a cottage industry of accommodation and food providers along the route. At the same time showing people the incredible beauty of the land.
It is my intention to recreate a similar experience for people along our amazing coastline
