He does not live a life chained to the confines of a desk within the monotony of corporate life, nor does he commute to work through the concrete jungle or wear a tie. He is adventurer, motivational speaker, author and inspirational explorer Alastair Humphreys who has just completed his sixth book entitled, “Microadventures” which is the inspirational tale of how to seize an opportunity to really live in the outdoors and enjoy every second of what nature and the great outdoors has to offer you.
Many of us could use this experience to learn much about ourselves, to explore, to wander and to learn about this great world in which some of us do not get to see much of accept from a car window. “Microadventures” talks of what small leaps and bounds we can engage in. Small trips that are not so expensive and are closer to home some are only weekend trips that can change your life and open your eyes to a world that you may have never noticed before.
Alastair has spent a lifetime exploring the world with such trips as cycling the world in four years, walking across the great and beautiful country of India, Rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, Canoeing the Yukon and crossing Iceland to name a few of his journeys. Some of the books he has written include; “Moods of Future Joys”, “The Boy who biked The World”, “There are Other Rivers”, “Ten lessons from the Road” and “Thunder and Sunshine”. He also made a film called “Into the Empty Quarter”.
