ADVENTURES ARE NOT ALL ABOUT TRAVEL
I'm crazy about setting myself goals with a combination of fun, challenge, purpose and learning. Some of the projects below are ongoing, others are complete. All helped me work through a fear or satisfied a curiosity, and most ended up as great little films. Enjoy!
Exploring mindset is an adventurous and remote retreat, combining a unique backdrop with a programme of specialist workshops designed to stimulate and focus passions and areas of expertise into an effective future path. In the past they've been in the middle of the ocean
A NOMADIC LIFE
An ever changing photo diary across ten years of living as a nomad. From boats to beaches to rivers to cafes, Dave's life living out of two bags and earning money over 15 different ways shows just how flexible working life can be.
OUT OF OFFICE
An ongoing study into spontaneity and working on the move. Now and then I head to a new place without a plan, aiming to use my skills in return for food, shelter and travel. The catch: I can't organise any jobs more than a few days in advance.
After a few months on a narrow boat in 2009 my life took an incredible new direction. These days home is a boat. Sometimes, houses aren't necessary.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, MONEY, MONEY...
50 WAYS TO MAKE £50
I'm not that good at many precise skills, and seeing as money plays such a big factor in life, I wanted to see if I could find lots of different types of ways to make money, and maybe give myself a new path in case adventuring didn't work out (which isn't going to happen). 20/50 done so far.
DEDICATION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME
What started out as an aim to take one selfie a day for 1000 days has turned into a lifelong project. Knowing that each photo is a gateway into my memories helps keep me present and aware of the importance of each moment. Plus, the dizzying film every 1000 days is worth waiting for!
CAN I? CAN'T I?
Yet another items on my friend Seb's 100Things bucket list, we decided to try to stay awake for 72 hours. Sitting on a couch didn't seem like much fun, so we set out to pack as much into three days as possible. The result was horribly tiring, and I've been in love with pillows ever since.
Perhaps one of the weirdest contraptions of all time, it took a while to wrap my mind around the skipper but eventually became the fastest in the world. Keep on plodding and it's amazing the places you get to.
JUST A LITTLE CHALLENGE
While my friend Sean was swimming the length of Britain, I decided to go and surprise him in the most awkward corner of Scotland.
