Adventurer and author Alastair Humphreys talks to Tanya about why we all need to get outdoors more, reconnect with nature, and live more adventurously – and why our smartphone habit just might be stopping us doing that. Alastair spent over four years cycling round the world, a journey of 46,000 miles through 60 countries and five continents. He’s taken on numerous other challenges and adventures since then including; rowing the Atlantic, trekking 1,000 miles across the Empty Quarter desert and walking 120 miles round London’s M25! (One of his pioneering ‘microadventures’). Alastair was one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year in 2012.
