I said I'd do it... AND I DID!

On January 1st 2009, I set off on the adventure of a lifetime. THE ODYSSEY EXPEDITION was my Guinness World Record™ breaking attempt to visit every member of the UN (193 countries) plus Vatican City, Taiwan, Kosovo, Western Sahara and Palestine. I regarded the home nations of the UK as four separate entities to bring the total up to 201.

And I did it all alone, on a shoestring budget, and WITHOUT FLYING.
