Today I discovered the treasure trove that is Alastair Humphreys’ vimeo channel. According to the internet’s most reliable information sink (wikipedia. duh.), Alistair is “an English cyclist, adventurer, author and motivational speaker. His first big adventure was completing a four-year bicycle journey around the world. He is a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year.” Article.
The video that will make your day is an example of his (?) invention, the “micro-adventure.” The description of the imbedded video below says, “Get a bunch of kids. Let them walk over a big hill, eat outside, run a bit wild, jump in a river, toast marshmallows and sleep under the stars in their clothes.” It’s only 3 minutes. Watch, and enjoy.
