30 Rivers Projects
Our planet is made up of water, at least about two thirds of it. Much of it salt water, undrinkable and almost useless to humans. Less than 1% of all water on Earth is fresh water, potable water, good to drink water. But these water bodies, an extremely finite resource, is fast becoming contaminated and polluted thanks to the pressures more than seven billions humans put on it.

The 30 RIVERS PROJECT attempts to paddle down thirty of the world’s longest rivers, across four continents, raising the issue of this finite resource and the repercussions if these drops of life are not protected, not only for the future, but for the here and now. Zero Day is upon us!

A SLOW BOAT DOWN THE GANGES

My most ambitious expedition to date is over. A 2,000 km+ journey, in an inflatable canoe, down the Holy Ganges, from Haridwar to Kolkata. Click the button below for blogs and other details on the journey.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

Hunter S Thompson

I believe I have one life to live. I may not be able to change the world, but I can do everything to change myself by being myself. The biggest adventure one can have is to live the life of one’s dreams. For me my biggest adventure of life is adventure itself. And I weave my life around my adventurous priorities.
