From A to B
Mark: I’m a late thirty-something English guy whose realised that it’s a hell of a long way to retirement. Some would say that’s a mid-life crisis. I’m sticking with my story that I just need some adventure. I’ve quit my stressful job in London and I’m off, with my wife, to travel a bit. When the idea of travelling first crossed my mind I quickly decided that I didn’t want to just go backpacking again, I wanted an adventure with a purpose. We initially talked about driving from London to Cape Town, something that a guy from my rugby club had done a few years ago. Sarah didn’t fancy Africa so we soon changed tack to the Americas and I came up with the concept of driving from the top to the bottom. This hit the spot and the plan developed from there.
