‘A Craving for Adventure’ – what’s it all about?
Without giving away too much of the story within my book, the story is about my long-standing need for a gargantuan adventure. Something which would cure the insatiable craving I have always had for daring excitement and adventurous journeys, and one which would hopefully leave me feeling completely satisfied with what I had achieved. Now that’s not an easy task for someone with a deep rooted fear of not living their life to the full.
I don’t know why I’m that way, because for as long as I can remember my weekends and holidays have always been filled with activities such as kayaking and sailing, and hiking up mountains. Yet regardless of how adventurous, or how hard I pushed myself; or indeed how much enjoyment I got from the many hours, days and even weeks I spent outdoors; it was never enough.
I needed something which would challenge me both mentally and physically far greater than I have ever before been challenged. Now with my sons grown up the time felt right to be embarking on that adventure.
