Alastair Says It For Us

A 25 year old Brit, Alastair Humphreys, spent more than four years bicycling through Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South America, North America, and Asia. This is what he says he learned:

“That the world is a good place filled with nice, normal people. It’s not all filled with the terrible events we see on the news. I learned to trust more. I saw my strengths and weaknesses highlighted in the good and bad times: loneliness, self-pity, determination, an openness to get on and communicate with whatever kind of person I’m with, a stubbornness not to quit, a fear of failure. I came to really appreciate my friends, family, country, and good fortune.”
