Some mornings I feel so unnaturally happy. I mean I’ve been woken up throughout the night by a small animal sniffing round my head outside the tent, then sat up in the strong moonlight for hours trying to get back to sleep, only to be woken at 5am by teams of workers with tourches collecting the rubber from the trees.

My body aches after three days and 450km. I’ve eaten nothing but basic food. I’ve pushed again and again through the heat yet now I feel a base level of relaxation and happiness like I never do in the comforts of home. These moments are rare and fleeting but highly addictive.


Hi, my names Ben and I’m traveling around the world with my bike, my paraglider and my laptop. Along the way I’m sharing the highs and lows of the life on the road. And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
