I have blogged about Ben Fogle before, so regular readers won’t be surprised to hear that I was mightily amused at fellow TV Presenter Kate Humble, who described him as a “dumb blonde”. Having said that, I have been impressed at his tenacity and penchant for challenges, none less so than his Atlantic Rowing feat with the Olympic oarsman James Cracknell. The series of programmes this past week have alternately annoyed me with their constant repetive reminders of what has gone before – too much like padding – but I have also been moved by what they went through.
I was always a fair-weather-sailor, so big waves terrified me. And yes, a campervan is adventure enough for now thank you very much.
