Graham Little is a writer, producer and broadcaster from Northern Ireland who has tried various creams and treatments to cure his itchy feet- including getting married and having children- but to no avail.
Consequently he has continued to distress his wife and despair his parents by disappearing abroad as often as possible. Past excuses have included an ambition to represent Ireland in any sport that had never previously had an Irish team; and going to San Francisco to swim from Alcatraz back to the city.
Along the way he has run with the bulls in Pamplona, hiked to the gorillas in Rwanda, dived with the sharks in South Africa, raced on camels in Oman and won an international elephant polo world title in Nepal.
He's also stayed in a nudist colony, walked the grotto in Lourdes, visited the stable in Bethlehem, eaten God knows what in a blind restaurant in Berlin, bobsleighed in Riga and set a new Irish record in Finland's World Sauna Sitting Championships.
Graham's very simplistic outlook on life is that we only get one go at it and since nobody knows when their turn is up we should race to try as many different roles as possible. Fluffing your lines in those roles is all just part of the act, and not to be taken too seriously. That's why he once recorded a tuneless single pretending to be an Irish boy band in Poland, puked everywhere in the World Nettle Eating Championships in Dorset, and led a Mayor's parade of Folk Dance Acts in Worcestershire.
If a first-time visitor, you are most heartily welcome to this travel blog- a curated collection of stories demonstrating what happens if you get serious about being silly. If you're a return guest, thank you very much. We'd love to build an international community where the participants are united by no more then a desire to see/do/learn about the infinite variety of humanity on the planet we should all try harder to share.
Graham always feels at home when away, but significantly less comfortable when travelling to anything digital or sharing online. So let's see where the particular journey of this travel and adventure blog leads. It goes nowhere without you, so thanks again for being here and thanks even more if you encourage anyone else to be here also.
When not indulging his travel and adventure obsessions Graham is better known as a TV sports presenter having previously worked for Sky Sports, Channel 4, ITV and many other national and international broadcasters.
