Yes, the shameless self-promotion continues tomorrow (Friday 5th March) at 8.30pm Sydney time (7.30pm Queensland time) on BBC Earth. Australians who thought they had managed to escape my unbearable levels of self-satisfaction will be disappointed to hear that if they miss the show on Friday, they can stream it on catch up on Foxtel or Fetch TV.
In this show, British adventurer Ben Fogle catches up with me five years after the original program to see how my sea gypsy life has changed.
I have seen the British edit and thought it was an improvement on the first episode as it is more genuine. In the first show, the fundamental message (that anyone can do what I do) was somewhat glossed over and that has been rectified in this episode. There is a tour around Calypso II and some nice (if a bit rainy) footage of Fiji too. Let me know what you think in the comments.
I was hoping to have the new book out to go with the broadcast, but that is going to take a few more weeks yet, I am afraid. I will post again when it is done.
Stay safe everyone and carry on!
