A few videos from my trip to say thank you to everyone who reads, comments and shares these posts, it really is nice to hear from you and get your support for JamesVsWorld.
Quite unexpectedly when I was cycling through Montenegro I stumbled across some scouts and found myself as a member of the Montenegro Scout Jamboree. I’m calling it fate as it was a very lazy day.
I knew I’d end up in some strange places on this trip, but I didn’t expect to change my plans and head to Croatia and dance my socks off backstage at Hideout Festival 2014.
It took me a long time to leave my Aberystwyth Canoe Club friends in the Alps. A 4 day visit turned to a week long stay, which soon became two weeks. In the end most of them actually left before I did, my brother along with them due to a badly sprained ankle. So why […]
We made it! After 21 days on the bike (and only one day later than predicted), Sam and I successfully managed to get to the camp site in L’Argentière-la-Bessée, near Briancon.

Most of you know by now that pretty soon I’m going to start my round the world cycling trip. If you haven’t then read this first. One of the first things I’m asked whenever discussing my trip is which charity I’m doing it for. I guess it’s a normal thing to do these days but I […]
About 8 months ago someone put the idea in my head that I should motorcycle around Australia. I couldn’t (and can’t) ride a motorcycle so instead I decided to cycle around Europe for a few months. This idea was fizzling in the back if my head for a few weeks before I decided to look […]
