Adventureholic - Extraordinary journeys on seven continents by land, sea and air
is a book by Neil Laughton, with a Foreword from Bear Grylls and endorsed by numerous well known adventurers including Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Sir Chris Boningtom, Sir Richard Branson, Major Tim Peak, Rebecca Stephens, Steve Backshall and Charley Boorman. This book is a roller-coaster ride around the world detailing the exciting, daring and occasionally eccentric expeditions undertaken by the author over a 30 year exploratory career.
The true stories include multiple expeditions to Mt Everest, the Arctic and Antarctica as well as journeys to deserts, jungles and oceans. methods of travel include climbing, trekking, riding, driving, flying and on one occasion paddling a bath! Readers will gain knowledge, inspiration and confidence that almost any adventurous endeavour is possible. You just need to be passionate, committed and have the courage to take the first step on your own exciting journey. The final chapter is called ‘Nine Lives and how I lost them’ and serves as a warning to the under-prepared, over-confident and those lacking a little common sense
How do you start your journey as an adventureholic? Why is it so important to be adventurous in life, both personally and professionally? How do you overcome the obstacles to leading a life more adventurously? When you book Neil Laughton to give his talk “The Adventurous Mindset” these questions will be answered and more. Listen first hand to some of the extraordinary adventures featured in the book, ignite your desire for more adventure in your own life and take the opportunity to ask questions and advice from the ‘original’ adventureholic.
In collaboration with Training & Development company Laughton & Co Ltd, groups of people from business organisations, sports teams or groups of friends can co-design a bespoke adventureholic experience ranging from a day in the great outdoors, a three day experiential journey or even participate in a full-on adventurous expedition. Conversations with bored business executives in the past few years have led to journeys in the Peruvian Amazon (paddle boarding), the Namibian Skeleton Coast (wildlife safari) and the Nepalese Himalayas (trekking & cycling). What’s your next adventure?!
