I had to change. I'd reached rock bottom. It was time to get a life and Groupon was my tool. A Narnia of discounts, a wardrobe into a magical otherworld full of adventure. And since then I've become a Lord, changed my name by Deed Poll to "Max Groupon", and bought property on the planet Mars.

Picture, if you will, you're on a bike, arriving at a beachside cafe, slowing down to almost a stop, and then just tipping over. No dramatic crash, just a slow, undignified tip. Three times I did that on my first day.

Remembering Wilfred Thesiger - The World's Greatest Desert Explorer

The late Sir Wilfred Thesiger seems to be the man of the moment... It is an ironic accolade and tribute to the man given that, when he was alive and in an age where reality TV and celebrity adventurers didn't exist, he never quite received the recognition that he probably deserved.

On the Value of Adventure in Life

Adrian Kowal | Posted 11.03.2014 | UK Lifestyle

he traditional concept of an adventurer is typically someone undertaking an extreme sport, often in the wilderness of mountains or inhospitable terrain, who is set on conquering nature - whether it's a peak, a pole, or otherwise. However adventure doesn't require you to climb Everest or cross the Sahara single-handedly to obtain the thrill and benefits of such a journey.

Surviving the Street Food in China

Wherever we go, people pepper Stephen and me with a steady stream of questions about our worldwide bicycle trip. One of the most asked is "Have you ever gotten sick from the food?" So far, the answer is no, and we're crossing our fingers that it stays that way.

The Lost Art of Relaxation: The Importance of Skilfully Doing Nothing

Adrian Kowal | Posted 28.02.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Adrian Kowal

The concept and word for 'boredom' was only coined in the mid-1700s. Was this because none of our ancestors before this time experienced an uneasiness when faced with a few hours of no activity? When did we begin to experience restlessness when taking a break from everyday life?

Those Spaniards who live within Andalucia, not included in the figures, visit other parts of their own region some 20 million times. Why? Because Andalucia is amazing! If it was a country it would be the 25th most popular, to visit, in the world.

What Can We Gain From Taking Risks?

After a whole load of deaths (though clearly not my own) and other unhappy endings in 2012, I came to realise that I could worry all I like - my anxiety will rarely prevent the bad times but will likely inhibit the good.

Real Men Go to the Maldives

This may sound like an idyllic, blissful paradise to some people. The beaches! The turquoise waters! The beaches and the turquoise waters together in one place! But to me, it was the source of quite some concern before our Honeymoon. You see, I am a man, and we men need excitement.

Part 2 - Risk

Adrian Hayes | Posted 08.11.2013 | UK Sport

Someone's attitude to risk is an inherently personal relationship. Take ten people together and their risk thresholds will be vastly different. Many people go through life confined securely within a small comfort zone, avoiding stepping out to venture into the unknown at all costs. Others fly through life on a roller coaster, reveling in risk taking in all manner of ways.

The best thing about bicycle touring is the contrast. You experience the discomfort of being outdoors in all kinds of weather, eat a variety of strange foods, both good and bad, and sleep in lots of unorthodox places. With the first leg of our bicycle tour, from Rome to Russia, behind us, Stephen and I have been reflecting on the best food, drink, and accommodation we've had.

Snorkelling conjures trips to the Caribbean, coral reefs and parrot fish, not frozen tundra in the Summer, titanic glaciers and migrating Canadian geese. Still, I was intrigued, and not just by the idea of paddling in freezing water.
