My best friend Louis and I went on a drive to Lands End a While back as I mentioned in one of my first posts ‘Lands End, England’. We just decided to hop in the VW and head off. As the months move on in London, my thoughts for plans this summer are becoming ever more relevant, and taking action to make them happen is getting more exciting. Louis and I are heading off on another trip this summer. This time the VW is staying behind, and we’ll be taking up our bicycles for a cycle ride. destination Sicily. Cycling is something I’ve always been interested in, and this summer it’s time to embark on my first super-long-distance ride.

Lands End, England

as we look back on 2011, I think to myself, yes it was a good year, but lets OWN 2012

This photo was actually taken in 2010, I had just travelled around Europe, and my new found desire for adventure and travel made me think about all the places I haven’t been in my country. From my Childhood (I come from a family which is fairly keen on cycling) I have always been interested in the idea of Lands End and John O’Groats ( tip and tail of the UK), so a good friend of mine, Louis, and I drove down from Brighton to Lands End for a few days in his VW camper van. It was a cool time, and a good escape from home, which now felt more like a stop off point than a permanent place to live, especially as my phone smashed shortly after getting to Lands End. It was a trip which has prompted numerous ideas of Micro-Adventures, whereas my longer travels have had me dreaming of grand adventures. There is so much to be seen, we all dream of tropical beaches, and snowy peaked mountains, when a couple hours drive away there’s a place equally as breathtaking, and sometimes it makes you (me) far more proud seeing your own country.
