Six months. Twelve countries. Four continents. Two broadcast journalists embarking on one journey of a lifetime.
After months of “maybe one day”, we’ve taken 6 months off work to travel the world and maybe inspire a few people who’ve put off their own grand plans.
Chris worked for the UK’s biggest commercial broadcaster ITV for 6.5 years before he took off in January, as a news reporter, newscaster and award winning online journalist.
James works for the BBC as a Political reporter on both TV and Radio – and with Brexit what a busy year he had in 2016! Over his 9 years at the corporation, he’s worked at Network and regional level covering major breaking stories, and won the New York Festival’s World’s Best Radio Programme Award in 2015.
But now together, and after years of hard graft in our careers, we’ve decided 2017 is time to cover our own story. We’re packing in a lot into the 26 weeks, and as you’d expect from two guys in TV, we plan to film and write as we go. So we hope you enjoy following us along the way, as we become our own correspondents around the world.
