Bon voyage

Best wishes to film-maker, fellow Merseysider, and Friend of Charles Darwin, Graham Hughes, who this month sets off on a frankly bonkers one-year odyssey to visit every member state of the United Nations, with a few other territories thrown in for good measure, bringing the grand total to a nice, round 200. Even more bonkersly, the carrot-topped Scouser is not going to be taking any flights.

It's all for a very worthy cause, WaterAid, and Graham plans to propose to his girlfriend at the end of his trip. Here is Graham's video trailer for his Odyssey:

You can follow Graham's exploits on the Odyssey Expedition website, and on his YouTube Channel. There was also some recent coverage about his trip in the Liverpool Daily Post.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
