Living Adventurously, with Alastair Humphreys, is the story of ordinary people choosing to live extraordinary lives.
Over the course of a month-long cycling journey, Alastair interviewed artists and chefs, students and pensioners, athletes and travellers. He wanted to discover what living adventurously means to different people, what universal obstacles stand in the way, and how each of these people took the first step to overcome them and begin their own fascinating journeys.

    Going out to explore the world was not encouraged within the Pakistani community

    Going out to explore the world was not encouraged within the Pakistani community

    Imran Mughal was the first British-Pakistani to cycle round the world. Over a delicious curry cooked by his mum the proud Yorkshireman told me how going out to explore the world was not encouraged within the Pakistani community. But the decline in health of his dad was a wake-up call to Imran that good health is not a given, nor does it last for ever. That, combined with redundancy, spurred him into action.

    "What is it that I want?" - an Adventure with a Raft and a Piano. Living Adventurously 15

    Ben Cummins is on a mission to deliver a piano from Liverpool to London. On a home-made raft. That he propels himself. Within 25 years... So far it has taken Ben seven years to push his raft the 127 miles along the canal from Liverpool to Leeds!
    This adventure / art project / way of life began when Ben asked himself a brilliant question, "what is it that I want from my life?"

    One Thing at a Time, as Beautiful as Possible - Living Adventurously 14

    Thom Barnett runs Mamnick, a clothing brand passionate about cycling. The tagline is "one thing at a time, as beautiful as possible". I cajoled Thom out of bed at early o'clock and we cycled out of Sheffield together, nipping down the back alleys and cycle paths he knows so well.
    Over breakfast I asked the fine arts graduate about life as a fashion designer, loving what you do, and Thom's love for exploring the hills and lanes of the Peak District.

    There is a Broken Connection Between Cities and Wildness - Living Adventurously 13

    Professor Ian Rotherham is an expert on a range of environmental issues, including urban wildlife, extreme weather, flooding and climate change. He has published extensively in academic journals, and has released a number of books on UK wildlife and the environment. Ian is a man positively bursting with enthusiasm and knowledge and ideas.
    Ian poured forth a cheerful stream of lessons on the environment, eco-tourism and rewilding.
    We talked about the cultural severance between cities and wildness, and the reassuring dictum that you can change the world, a little bit at a time: perhaps by beginning with rewilding your back garden.

    We Need to Reclaim Time to Think in Our Life if we are to Do Meaningful Things - Living Adventurously #12

    We Need to Reclaim Time to Think in Our Life if we are to Do Meaningful Things - Living Adventurously #12

    Sophie Stephenson was living the life she’d always wanted. She had a well-paid dream job in Australia, lived in a beautiful place and felt secure in the knowledge that this could go on, indefinitely. But she was, she realised, unfulfilled. She was not, it turned out, truly happy with this life at all.
    By chance Sophie came across a reference to Nancy Kline’s book Time to Think. She described a way of being with one another that is both incredibly simple, and incredibly rare. We don’t give ourselves, or others, the freedom to think without interruption, or judgment, or time limits, or an obsession with outcomes. We limit our thinking, our conversations, our relationships and our entire lives by confining our minds.
    Sophie began to question the life she had chosen. She began to ask what she really wanted, to explore the ‘authentic’ me, her instinctive mind, and gradually, she began to reclaim what really mattered. Sophie left corporate life, moved back to the UK, and met the man who is now her husband and father to her two children.
    We need to reclaim time to think in our life if we are to do meaningful things with our life.
    I was struck by how deeply Sophie listened and quickly figured me out. It was almost bizarre, in a nice way. I asked her how I could become a better listener, and how to ask better questions - both pretty crucial things for a novice podcaster to get to grips with...
