A while back, I connected with Alastair Humphreys, a writer, and self-described adventurer. I immediately admired his curious and exploratory spirit, and I have mentioned him before. He’s written more than a dozen books, including one called Microadventures that is maybe, particularly in the TAoN spirit of engaging with the everyday. More here.
I’ve been particularly keen to learn how hardcore super-travelers have coped with the Covid era — how to satisfy the kind of curiosity that craves loads of novelty, when your movements are restricted, either by choice or by law or some combination thereof?
Humphreys seemed like a perfect person to ask about this, and indeed he told me about one project he came up with that addresses this question head-on — and that is something others could try, too. The project is called A Single Map Is Enough.
