Adventurer Alastair Humphreys has cycled around the world, walked across deserts and rowed the Atlantic. His last expedition was a simple walk across Spain, but it brought him face-to-face with his deepest fear.


Threaded Clouds by Blue Dot Sessions, Spanish Moss by Ennio the Little Brother, Shinedown and  Somnolence by Kai Engel, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (Winter Mvt 3) played by John Harrison with the Wichita State University Chamber Players, Violins and tea by Loch Lomond and Twinkle Twinkle by David Mumford.
