It's called Rambling in Britain, Bush Walking in Australia, Tramping in NZ and Hiking in America.

Whatever it's called, welcome to my blog which is simply about journeys and life..... It shares stories, tales and thoughts, in prose, verse, photo and video. WALK ON RAMBLER


Monday, January 18, 2010


I heard this guy on the local ABC radio today. He is now in Turkey, 3 months on the road. He is aiming to be in Brisbane at the Gabba Cricket ground for the first test of the Ashes between Australia and England in November.

Pretty impressive motivation even though he said he was really into an adventure for a start before the cricket bug. I live 10minutes from the Gabba and would probably not as motivated to walk down there even though I am a cricket fan. In this case I would not be considered for the Barmy Army or the equivalent green and gold Aussie fana-atics.

Hope he has not heard of the English dramatic collapse in the third test in South Africa. Hey they drew the series and that's all they need to do to retain the ashes......ON YOUR BIKE CHAPS


Below are some excerpts from an interview FSN London did recently with Oli Broom, who sets off from the UK in October, on his bike, with a cricket bat, for Australia.

His aim - to make it down under in time for the 2010 Ashes series, and to raise a hundred grand for the Lord's Taveners and the British Neurological Research Trust.

He tells us, among other things, about his route, his 'great friendship' with England captain Andy Strauss, and his personal reasons for wanting to support these two charities.
