Where next for the man who has been everywhere...?

On the first of January 2009, I crossed the River Plate from Argentina to Uruguay. Thus began The Odyssey Expedition my incredible, hilarious and occasionally terrifying four year journey to every country in the world without flying, as accredited by Guinness World Records™.

We then travelled south to Bocas Del Toro, Panama where I embarked on an three-year long adventure living off-grid on the tropical island I named Jinja Island.
