Number 51- Endurance Tandem Bike Ride

For the first 14 days in April 2011, Dave Cornthwaite and myself will be attempting to ride a tandem bike from Vancouver to Las Vegas. The distance is 1400 miles and before you say it; yes- we fully realise that we won’t be able to sit down for a very long time after the journey! […]

Number 43- Volunteer at an Orphanage

Following is the (almost) daily journal of my time spent at the Welcome Home Orphanage, Uganda, Africa, where I spent 3 weeks volunteering. September 28th, 2011 Africa… What can I say on the eve of my flight to Africa? It’s a peculiar situation to be in; knowing that there’s so much ahead in the next […]

Number 42- Cycle Through Cuba

Fifty years on from its Revolution, Cuba remains one of the last socialist nations in the world. It is also one of the most unique. A three-week bike ride through this amazing island offers an incredible insight into Cuban culture. It also gives you a great opportunity to grow a beard. Straight from the airport, […]

Number 41- Buy a Stranger’s Lunch

There are times in life when you experience something that stops you in your tracks, leaving you to question the important things in life. Today, this happened to me as I ticked off Number 41 from my list- Take a Stranger to Lunch. In keeping with trying to tick another 10 items from the list […]

Number 39- Read the TV Weather Report

Wow! Could there be a more fun job? For the past 5 weeks since we’ve been in Canada, Global News have been following our 100Things journey very tightly and so when we rang them and asked if we could read the weather on their evening news show, we were stoked to get a positive response. A day […]

Number 36- Walk Across a Country

The idea of walking is as simple as it is natural, however planes, trains and automobiles have meant that we now rarely allow ourselves the time to enjoy a good old-fashioned stroll. Remember that it wasn’t too long ago that using our feet was the only way of land transport. With this in mind I […]

Number 33- Be on a TV Gameshow

We’ve all been guilty of yelling at the TV whilst watching a game show at one stage or another. Whether it be sitting in the living room with family, or laying alone in your own bedroom, each one of us has thought, I’d do better than that guy! I know I have, so I decided […]

Number 30- Join a Protest

Without doubt one of the most hilarious activities I’ve ever been involved with! Why did I want to join a protest? I hear you ask. Well as kid I had a friend who was never available on the weekends. The reason for this was because his parents were protestors and would drag him around the […]

Number 26- Help a Stranger

Number 26 on the 100 Things list is to help a stranger. This I was initially able to achieve after being asked by a concerned mother to address her daughter’s school about the topic of bullying. Her daughter was sadly a victim of bullying and being able to help in small way by sharing stories […]

Number 24- Publish Article

I’m not sure why I’ve always wanted to publish an article, to be honest. Perhaps in some sick and twisted way it stems from my early school days where I remember my English teacher screwing up a story I wrote because my hand writing was terrible? Probably not, but regardless having a piece of writing […]
