Powered by Me

In 2017 I embarked on my first lifestyle adventure. One that was created for myself, to fit around my lifestyle and to test my physical and mental limits in ways that I never had done before.

Powered by Me was created and it all began on 1 January 2017.

The rules were simple. To travel for a whole year only using human-powered transport, to blog about my journey and to raise money for a different charity each month.

My story is one of physical and mental endurance, trial and error, with some stupidity thrown in. But most of all my story is about doing what I can with what I have, making better choices and growing my skills and experiences along the way.
