In June 2017 he took his Paddle Board the length of the second longest river in England - the Thames. 1 Country, 1 capital city, 240Km, 5 days.

Until the end of 2015, Andy was the founder & director of a successful event production company but, with a desire to find and discover more from the world he chose the road less travelled by selling his company, packing his bags and heading out into the unknown.
From kayaking through Wales, cycling on the continent, or exploring South East Asia on a dilapidated scooter, Andy is no stranger to filling his spare time with the new and adventurous. When not sleeping in a hammock or out rambling through the countryside he can often be found watching his beloved Gloucester Rugby or trying to convince his body that it really was built for running.
In the spring of 2016 Andy became the first person to stand up paddle board the length of the Danube River. From its source in Donaueschingen, Germany through 10 countries & 4 capital cites untill it arrives at the Black Sea in Romania just shy of 3000km later.
