learning to fly
Left my busy London life to set off on a freedom-inspired adventure around the globe, from the cradle of civilization to red centre, on my ´94 BMW motorcycle.
So, with all my bags packed, my motorbike ready, and a few bucks in my pocket I was ready call the road my home for the foreseeable future. 2011..
2013...Successfully crossed Africa. Still alive. Feeling physically tired but triumphant, like a fallen king and chosen poorman, at once married to the dusty path and to a motorbike named Farlap.
People who look like they know always know less than those who dont.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Once I have seen, been burnt out by, slapped by, had my life saved by, yet almost killed by, mother nature, the world and it's savage people, I will tell you something amazing I have seen.

Hrm. I understand some things about motorcycle engines, horsemanship and Australia. I have lived amongst the most glamorous, subversive and dangerous, from selfish cities to snowy mountains, I have stories I will never tell. Though kind of dark, I have run successful international businesses, alone and with friends, lived high rise apartments in London to eating out of cold cans on the road to hell. Been in some deathly situations and lived to tell the tale and it's only going to get wilder.
