Here’s a little story.  When I was younger, I was on a fairground ride, sitting on the end seat and I half came out of the gap between the harness and the ride.  Clinging on for dear life, luckily the ride operator saw me and hit the emergency stop button.  I was given the choice, did I want to get off, or switch seats.  I chose to switch and I believe this was the start of my adrenaline seeking adventures!

I’m addicted to the nerves and then feeling on top of the world and buzzing for hours after achieving something massive!  Not a lot scares me any more so I’m now constantly looking out for the next thing that may bring the feeling back or generally anything that looks cool or different!  This plays a HUGE part in my travels.
