As well as expeditions such as cycling round the world, walking across India and rowing the Atlantic, Alastair was named as a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year for his pioneering work on the concept of microadventures, trying to encourage people to get outside, get out of their comfort zone, go somewhere they’ve never been. A microadventure is an adventure that is close to home, cheap, simple, short, and yet very effective.
Alastair has written ten books about his adventures. He is highly regarded as a motivational keynote speaker for corporate events around the world. You can get in touch with Alastair here. He produces a free occasional newsletter with the highlights of the blog and important expedition news.
