  1. Looking forward to seeing this one! A commuter bike in the Shetlands? I like it!

    • I did worry that this was turning into a silly, gimmick trip, but Bromptons really do work bloody well on packrafts! (Not so well on big uphills though)

    • Even though I am a seasoned professional and ooze testosterone from every pore, all I can say is
      I completely agree with you! I was so chuffed to see puffins. They look better than they taste…

  4. Alastair,
    I really am amazed how you keep thinking up these trips. Your Microadventure Year is really going to inspire a lot of people.
    I have travelled a lot but I have never been to Shetland to my shame. It looks gorgeous in your beautiful little clip.
    I’m definitely looking forward to reading about it all tomorrow. Nice plug 😉

  5. I’m going to have to stop reading your site Al. I can’t handle the jealousy.
