  • Adventure plans just grow once you have the kernel of an idea
  • Fundraising - think of a massive number and go for it. Spurred on by the unknown element of it
  • We know that at some point in the 120 days things will go wrong - it's about living with that and accepting it
  • Living adventurously is about doing something different to the day to day
  • If I could live my life over I'd have travelled more with the family
