So, who is Dan?
For the past few years, I have lived mostly in Australia, where I worked as a newspaper reporter, wrote a book, and learned to surf.
Swapping my suit for sandals, I spent six months was living in Wanarn, a remote Aboriginal community a long way from anything in the middle of the central Australian deserts and where I began planning this journey. I had a lot of time on my hands.
Since then, I’ve moved back to Britain, got married, and spent as much time as I can find rock-climbing.
