Round the World Attempt

Yup, I couldn't come up with a better title so I'm just describing it as it is, a cycle around the world. The attempt part is just to cover my ass in case I fail spectacularly!
By William Bennett
#664 - posted Sunday May 24, 2015 by Neil Gunton

"Setting off on a trip like this isn't something that can just happen. If you go down the sponsorship road or take out a loan it can happen a lot quicker but I liked the idea of earning it myself and having no commitments at all once I leave Ireland, leaving me entirely free to do my own thing. That's why this trip has been 5 years in the planning. After several years of hard work and living well within my means I've finally reached the point where I can set off on this journey. At 24 I'm probably at the younger end of the spectrum of people taking on a journey like this. For most people there are only short periods of time in life in which you have no commitments or constraints. I was very fortunate in that everything fell into place for me and I was free from any commitments. Instead of regretting a missed opportunity I've bitten the bullet and gone all out and put all of my effort into making this adventure happen. We'll have to see how it plays out now!" - read this journal
