“Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey.” Alex Noble

They say hindsight is 20:20 vision. What they forget to mention is that you earn that vision by having the courage to go somewhere. As I packed my 4x4 on the 31st December 2011, I had no idea what the next several months would entail. As with any journey, there were uncertainties. That was a given. Understood. Accepted. The only thing you can bank on as a traveller is that the journey will find you. But only if you hit the road.
