I guess sailing, trekking across desserts, and climbing up on to the roof of the world, the Pamir Mountains, will require some kind of fitness level. So with a year and a half t0 go it’s time to put the junk down and get rid of what’s in the trunk. So starting today I am undertaking a transformation. My key areas are: 1. Sleep 8 hours a day 2. Eat Clean – no processed foods, organic, whole. Eat Fish and Lean Meats 3. Stretch (the truth wherever I can…ooops – inside voice) 4. Weight training 3-4 x week/cardio alternate days – sex could work here! 5. Lose 40 lbs. Ugh. Hence the donuts – even the mini ones – are gonna have to go (for now). I’ll let you know how I make out. 🙂 Put the donuts down?? Say what?!

Reply mapolo October 2, 2014 Hi Francis! How exciting to make contact with you! We are big fans…have watched the PBS and own your gorgeous book. We are still planning things out and we are not planning to do the epic trip you and Dennis did – and instead hit the highlights. And yes we are rethinking that 6 months and will likely be breaking it over a few years …. Fluent in Slovenian (hahaha) and Basics in Spanish …working on Italian and then Turkish (advice from your book!) I have a million questions I would like to ask you…and I’m hoping we can stay in touch.
