It's been awhile since I last posted, but I have been super busy for the last couple of months unfortunately.On Friday July 26th 2013 at 2:15pm, I will be quitting my job and boarding a flight from London to Beijing with the intention of never returning back to the United Kingdom by anything else other than by foot. 15,000km from one side of the world to the other.
Upon arrival in Beijing and after a good nights sleep, I will then begin my journey home (on my own). – All whilst writing a book and self-producing a micro-documentary about my life on the road to freedom.I will be doing live Google+ hangouts in every village and city across my journey, sort of bringing you along with me, if you know what I mean?
There are multiple deserts and mountains for me to cross over and walk around. Plenty of people that speak languages I don’t understand (bearing in mind I only speak English). Some of the areas get insanely-hot in the summer (I am fair-skinned and will probably boil and get 2nd degree burns), and so stupidly-cold (we’re talking like -40o bollocks-freezing cold here). However, after doing more research on this than is possible to write or comprehend, I think/know it will all be possible.My entire journey will be tracked via GPS
and plotted on to Google maps. You will be able to see where I am at any given moment in time. Through the use of 3G networks, multiple wireless HD camera’s and a lightweight laptop, I hope to be able to live stream some of my journey, as well as recording HD-quality videos and taking photographs every step of the way.This is my get-a-way plan, my escape-plan. My ticket out of here.My mind is prepared, my body is prepared and all I have to do is put one foot in front of another with the direction of home. Easy, right?
Who knows what may happen along my journey? And you know what… I really don’t care! Why? Because life’s too short. We only have our memories at the end of the day, so I’m making some good ones. It’s all or nothing in my eyes, life or death. I think life is what you make it, so I’m making it what I want… I’m bringing my dreams to life, and letting the whole world dream with me.For more information checkout
