” I have had two “micro adventures” in the UK over the last year. During the “worst weather” for a generation two of us set off to walk a lap of the M25, the 120-mile motorway that encircles London. Sticking within the “audio corridor” of the road, walking through fields and small towns, hopping fences and camping in woods I was interested to find out whether it is possible to find adventure in 21st Century suburbia. The film material from this project is with a film production company at the moment. Check out the photo’s

After the M25 I travelled to remote northern Scotland for a training trip with a friend. The plan was simple: to travel from the west coast to the east coast, walking from the sea up to the watershed and then unpacking the1-man packraft boats we carried in our packs. We would then paddle down the River Spey to the coast. Recent freak temperatures of minus twenty two degrees celsius made the paddling section quite interesting! Check out the short video from the trip
