In 2009 I left Cape Town, where I had lived for three years, and began the long journey back home to Wales. It was a journey I had made several times whilst living in South Africa, only this time I was to do it without taking a single flight. What followed was the adventure of a lifetime as I made my way through Africa, the Middle East and Europe armed with little more than a backpack, a tent and a belief that I would somehow succeed in my quest.
Looking back now there are so many fond memories from this trip, a trip that saw me pass through over twenty-five countries over the space of fourteen months, a trip that well and truly ignited a passion and need for adventure in my life.
