A paralysed man has set out on an epic journey to travel 30,000 miles around the world, in a wheelchair.
Andy Campbell, who is 37 years old, became paralysed after he broke his back in a climbing incident eight years ago – but won't let his disability get in the way of his passion for adventure travel and the outdoors.
After winning the ‘Go Beyond’ bursary from Land Rover and the Royal Geographical Society – an award aimed at those who want to take a journey beyond their limits and boundaries – he has decided to partake in a 'pushing the limits' expedition across four continents in two years.
Mr Campbell plans to climb, kayak and paraglide his way across every natural environment imaginable, from sea to desert and everything in between.
He aims to demonstrate that the exploration of a diversity of landscapes is within everyone’s reach, whatever their ability.
