“A man’s worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions.” – Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
We don’t do things by halves, and our ambitions are simple, to travel the planet continually until such time as we cannot, either through ill health or abject poverty!
6 continents in 10 years..
Nothing is sure in this life of ours, but global pandemics and alien/zombie invasions not withstanding, this is how we hope it will pan out..
2024 – 2025 Africa
2026 – 2027 Northern and Eastern Europe
2028 – 2029 Asia
2030 – 2031 Australasia
If 2021 has shown us anything, it has proved beyond any doubt, that nothing is certain and predictable in this life any more, but we are guided by these wisest of words below, my favourite quotation.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt
