The Spirit of John Muir 2016
On 8 November 2016, adventurer, author, filmmaker and blogger Alastair Humphreys spoke at our second Spirit of John Muir event at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh
"Adventure can begin on your doorstep. It's waiting for you if you choose to make it happen..." Alastair Humphreys entertained a packed theatre audience with tales of cycling around the world, rowing across the Atlantic Ocean and treking round the M25 – before challenging them to think about how we can encourage more people to embrace adventure.
'Ranulph Fiennes’ expeditions don’t start with him having a good cry'..." Read more of Alastair Humphreys' unique take on the theme of 'adventure' in Rob Bushby's blog about our Spirit of John Muir evening.
And watch Alastair's beautiful and inspiring new film 'Wilderness' - which premiered at our event - below...
