“A man with a plan” #were it all began

  Well in a few weeks time I'm going to be taking on my biggest session of my life!"I must be absolutely mad" but eh life is for living and this is my only chance I've got to follow my dream before mrs austin or children come along!!! I have been really busy in the last few weeks with preparing everything for the trip and trust me when me when I say this it's not cheap!! But very rewarding at the same time.I have literally thought of everything from tooth paste to a boat!! Don't get me wrong there has been times when I've had cold feet like most people,were only human at the end of the day! And if I didn't have them feelings I would seriously think there is something wrong with me! I mean let's put it straight I'm practically homeless for the next 12months! But the closer I am getting to the 8th of March the more I'm buzzing for the adventure ahead, I just can't help thinking of the potential fish I could have,I love fishing for big Unknown carp on huge pieces of water, there is something about catching a unknown big fish as it's still virgin and probably never been seen before! Im getting asked this question a lot recently why are you doing this? Well since a child really,I remember sitting down on the sofa and watching John Wilson fishing adventures and who remembers the little clip before the program started of the man walking around the world,with just a set of rods,well I can honestly say it started there for me I remember always saying to my mom and my dad I'm going to do that one day! But as you can imagine day to day life gets in the way and before I knew it I was 24! And My biggest fear in life is regret,It's always been a dream of traveling around the world but never did I think for one minute I would be following it threw. I'm still pinching my self everyday and think how lucky I am, with the support I've had from people on the social media! friends and family, I'm really humbled by it all. ive been really spending a lot of time planning and doing my investigation into lakes,rivers,canals and I've found some amazing places which I just can't wait to get my teeth into, Im mainly fishing public waters(free) but there is a few commercial waters what have always intrested me as well, my plans are to travel to France,Spain,Belgium,Holland,italy,Switzerland,Slovenia and Croatia so I've got some serious ground to cover! Me being me I have chosen some of the harshest and biggest waters available but on the flip side i have found little pockets of heaven were there is a chance of a big fish! But who knows? well I'll be blogging regular while im on my travels and there will be loads of coverage on we're I am in the world! until next time Ben Austin     image
