I am proud to announce that I have been selected by the Ted Simon Foundation to be one of the first ever Jupiter’s Traveller. The Ted Simon Foundation believes that individuals of good will, moving among foreign cultures and making themselves vulnerable to the beliefs and customs of strangers, have great importance in promoting world understanding, and even more so when they can distil the essence of their experiences into a form that can be absorbed by many.
As a ‘Jupiter’s Traveller’ I will strive to seek to understand the beauties, mysteries & tragedies of our world, & his place in it, through personal adventure. I am inspired and motivated to develop my observations and insights into something of value for the rest of the world to share.
Having already travelled more that 160,000 miles by motorcycle and having a number of major solo motorcycle trips under my belt I am returning to Eastern Europe before I set off for North America . I am planning to ride from Alaska to Mexico by motorbike on my own through north Americas finest wilderness areas and I will document my experiences through photography, writing and poetry with the aim of compiling all my material, including that from previous journeys into a published book.
