Join Chris as he embarks on the adventure of his life. Touching twenty countries and travelling close to 30 000 km over 8 months, all the way from the southern tip of Africa to the shamrock fields of Ireland. The journey was a publicity stunt creating media opportunities for paediatric healthcare service providers. And, of course, Chris relished the opportunity to taste his very first Guinness at the source. But was the trip all the way to Dublin worth it?

Battling ill health and broken friendships this rollercoaster ride eventually cost Chris his eyesight. He relays the story of his adventures on the road, medical trauma and recovery with passion and good humour. After his devastating prognosis as a blind man, Chris thought that sight loss would cause his adventures to end but it has rather ignited his curiosity. Chris’ inspirational scooter ride and journey to recovery and how he has overcome the obstacles he has faced has not slowed down his adventurous spirit!
