This is the first question that I am always asked and my usual response is to throw back a defensive ‘Why not?’
Simply the answer is my hobby is travel and adventures and I like to explore. Everyday I can feel like a young boy again full of new experiences. The situation of being in new places, with new people and new ideas challenge the perceptions I have of the world.
The not so simple reason may become clear with time.
I am not raising any money for charity. Maybe I should have but as I have recently done one event this year, persuading people to fork out more money does not feel right.
