HITCHHIKING ALONE TO AUSTRALIA
In 2017, I set out to hitchhike to the other side of the world. Over 2 years, I was taken through Europe, Russia, Central Asia, China and more. During this time, I achieved over 600 nights of wild camping and learned how to keep safe, stay comfortable, find the perfect spot and more. I mastered navigation, even learning how to find my way using the sun, trees, wind and puddles. I also developed the ability to plan effectively and to remain calm and adapt when things go wrong. Since returning to the UK, I have developed these skills further and composed some courses to pass them on to others.
Why did I do it? I had two reasons. First, I had to see if there was enough goodness in the world to get me to the other side of it. There was. Second, I wanted to test the idea that the world is inherently dangerous. It really isn't.
Day one was the hardest of my life. I didn't feel like the sort of person who could achieve such a task. I realised that I wasn't, but if I took each day at a time I could become one. I firmly believe there is unrealised potential in everyone. I want to help people to develop theirs.
WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE ALL OF THAT?
In 2014 when I was still taking medication for anxiety, I joined the Falmouth and Exeter University Expedition Society. Leading groups of people gave me a sense of purpose I had never felt before. I took more and more responsibility, culminating in co-leading the society's attempt at the Three Peak Challenge in 2015.
After leaving the Expedition Society, I was fortunate enough to be recruited on a research expedition to four unmapped islands off the south coast of Cambodia. I was the Health and Safety Officer for a team of 8. This role showed me the importance of good preparation and research in keeping everyone safe. (Photo: Henry Traynor)
PGL TRAVEL LTD.
In 2016/17 I worked at PGL (an outdoor activity centre) as a Group Leader and Activity Instructor. Every day was full of meaning because it was my job to challenge young people to grow.
THE NAME 'NEW DAY ADVENTURES'
It works on a few levels. First, my surname is Day. Second, after overcoming anxiety and finding a whole new path in life I felt like a New person. Third, I overcame anxiety by going on Adventures. Put all that together and you get New Day Adventures!
In everything I do, I believe in inspiring people to grow by challenging themselves. I do this by confronting ideas about what we're capable of and sharing valuable knowledge and experience. Leading people on outdoor adventures is the best way I have found to achieving this.
Inspiring clients with the belief that they can challenge themselves and grow.
In leading, I inform and educate clients so that they can undertake their own adventures.
Delivering the service that clients expect.
Sharing information truthfully to ensure safety and the best experience.
