There are a surprising number of people adventure travelling around the world on various forms of transport. I have picked some of them who are doing great journeys. A few are well into them. Others have not yet started their adventures. About all of them I hope you will enjoy reading.

Peter is cycling down Africa as I write. He has taken a slightly different route to Dan and I but his fascinating story has similarities to our own.
He is raising money for 'The Against Malaria Fund'.
You can follow his journey here by clicking on the links to his blog posts to the right.
Josie Dew was one of our inspirations for cycling down Africa. Josie cycled alone through many parts of the world on her own, which shows how tough and independent she really is.
She wrote some good books about her cycling adventures, such as 'The Wind in my Wheels'.
Dan and I met her once through a friend and she was a down to earth and fun as anyone I have ever met. To the right, you can see some of her blog posts.
Alastair is someone I have only just come across through someone else's website. He's a full time adventurer with a great blog about kit he recommends to use when on your adventures.
Tom's from England, as he states on his website. But, he is an adventure cyclist who cycles in some pretty challenging places like the Yemen, Lapland and Mongolia.
Roz Savage is rowing across the Indian Ocean and she has been rowing around the world for a number of years now. At this point, she has just left Australia.
Keep up with her blog to the right.
I'm partial to motorbikes too so I could not leave out this couple. I read about them in 'Ride' magazine in an article about them setting on two Yamaha's around the world.
Dan and I met lots of bikers on our journey. There is a great camaraderie on the road and bikers were a big part of that spirit. None that I met were like Charlie Boorman and Ewan McGregor with a great support team following them. Most were handy mechanics and self reliant because they had to be.
They don't yet have an RSS feed on their website so you can get update on their progress. I have asked them to put one on!
Paul and Angie set off in May 2011.
Here's an interesting site to help people who need information about cycling around the world and their latest blog posts.
