What draws me in is that a trip is a leap in the dark. It’s like a metaphor for life. You set off from home, and in the classic travel book, you go to an unknown place. You discover a different world, and you discover yourself.
— Paul Theroux

I've always had the desire to travel. It's like an addiction. Those I've met on the road speak of a similar compulsion: to explore, to discover, to learn.

I’m on a journey around the world – one complete circumnavigation starting and ending in Brighton on the south coast of England. It will take me more than a year to complete.

My route takes me through five continents and myriad cultures and environments.

My aim is to keep asking the question "What's over there?" and to find as many answers as I can.

This is my story and I hope you'll share it with me.
