It’s official, I’m a Dad!

Watch video, the birth of my very first baby   https://youtu.be/lMBFPMAn5cU   What an 8 hour rollercoaster adventure it was! You might remember nearing the end of my run across Canada, when I began shouting 'who's the Daddy?!' Well, it's finally come true....

Support Local, Eat Pie ?????

Support Local, Eat Pie ?????

“Action Woman, she’s ready for anything! Ready to go base jumping, ready to get a sausage roll!” Anna declared with serious enthusiasm right before we were about to leave for a little adventure to Gloucester Services. An adventure to a service station you say? Yes!...

Pregnancy Test ?

Pregnancy Test ?

“I'm not sure I trust these tests, they were the cheapest ones I could buy” Anna said as she had the pregnancy stick in her hand. She continued, “You wanna watch me dunk this in wee?” “Alright, dunk it in” I replied. Anna was now doing our very first pregnancy test...

Special lockdown donation

Special lockdown donation

I think you’ll probably agree, it’s really nice to hear tales of fundraising efforts and donations being made across the country at the minute, especially during these weird and whacky times - what’s even more heart warming is to be on the receiving end of one of...

How to keep sane in lockdown

How to keep sane in lockdown

Here's a vlog with me and my partner in crime, Anna McNuff, doing a little adventure out of the house to keep sane from lockdown. As you can imagine, Anna and I as adventurers aren’t the best types for staying indoors and we need to be ‘let off the lead’ to go for a...

Climb your local quarry, stay in the moment

Climb your local quarry, stay in the moment

With the corona virus floating around, getting my daily movement in has definitely changed. Normally I’ll go for a big run around a hill, or a cycle around some country lanes. It’s the kind of movement where you just ‘let your brain go free’. What I mean by that, it’s...

Don’t guilt, inspire

Don’t guilt, inspire

‘Guilt’ you say? Now I’m not talking about the kind of guilt when you’re trying to force feed your friend Cadbury’s chocolates just to make yourself feel a little better for being a chocolate monster. What I’m actually talking about is that when you ask people to...

We love our NHS

We love our NHS

Over the years, let’s be honest, the NHS has taken some flack. But right now with the corona virus, it’s safe to say that they’re putting their lives at risk to support us in the time of need. And it genuinely fills my heart with pride and brings a tear to my eye. As...

Beat the Coronavirus, go be an Adventurer!

Beat the Coronavirus, go be an Adventurer!

Now, I don’t want to get all 'doctor' on you. In fact, what I’m about to share with you I’d imagine the doctor wouldn’t prescribe. Let’s be honest, they mostly want to give us medication ‘that will fix it’. I think it’s fair to say that the coronavirus isn’t fixable,...

Should we plan for our future?

Should we plan for our future?

‘Your Future Plan’, it’s always something to think about and probably whirls around our heads at the best of times. The other day, I was invited as a keynote speaker at the University of Gloucestershire festival (supported by inevents) to speak to the students about...

Final day, Anna’s barefoot Britain run

Final day, Anna’s barefoot Britain run

'Achieve big, stay grounded' Rather than reel off those words like a cheesy New Years resolution (it’s easy too write words), I’d like you to watch a vlog I made recently and actually re-live the final day of my partner in crime, Anna McNuff’s, barefoot Britain...

Chris Evans surprise donation

Chris Evans surprise donation

It’s that time of year again, Christmas, and it's always a nice reminder to know that it’s all about ‘giving’ (well, it is nice to receive presents too, but you know what I mean!). Here's a vlog going to Chris Evan's Virgin Radio show, where Chris wants to donate to...

Adventureman Hits Dubai

Adventureman Hits Dubai

Last week I boarded the plane and set off on a mini adventure to Dubai, I was invited as the closing keynote speaker for a tech company, Travelport. I flew with Emirates and it was AMAZING! So much leg room and all the films I could dream of ready for me to watch. I...

Adventureman Meets Royalty

Adventureman Meets Royalty

I was recently invited to go and be a guest speaker at St James’ Palace, and present some special awards for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to some young people (I do daft adventures and all that motivational speaking malarkey), so it made sense to be invited, but...

Inspiring People without them Realising

Inspiring People without them Realising

As an inspirational speaker, it is all about trying to impact people’s lives without them realising that you are doing that – not forcing it down their neck, but being able to inspire them to make positive changes in their own lives with what I share with them. Last...

Becoming an Unlikely Fundraising Superhero

Becoming an Unlikely Fundraising Superhero

When it comes to fundraising, if you want to get people to donate to a cause, you must give them a story. Five years ago, after I set up Superhero foundation, a family got in touch who had a seven-year-old daughter, Charlotte, with cerebral palsy. She could have an...
