New Interview Now Live On The Self-Propelled Podcast

I very much enjoyed chatting with Dave Cornthwaite a couple of weeks ago while recording a new episode for his Self Propelled Podcast.

We travelled a meandering path of conversation on the theme of living life on one’s own terms, from my early bicycle-mounted adventures, to finding creative expression through books and films, to sharing lessons in life and travel with others looking to expand their horizons, and finally the Transcaucasian Trail project that has consumed my existence for the last half-decade.

One Week in Valais Self Propelled

In August 2020, between the first and second Covid lockdowns, Active Traveller Magazine invited me to join filmmaker and photographer Dan Wildey in the Swiss region of Valais. They set us a challenge to explore four different regions of Valais: Morgins, Nendaz, the Aletsch Arena and Saas Fee. You can read my article about the trip and watch Dan’s film on active-traveller.com and to find out more about Valais, their website is valais.ch/shop
