Leon McCarron is an Irish adventurer and filmmaker and specializes in long distance, human-powered expeditions. From his very first journey covering 14,000 miles in 18 months cycling by bike from New York City, to walking on foot through the Gobi desert in Mongolia in -30C temperatures, the only constant in Leon’s life is that home is constantly changing. Always on the move in pursuit of stories, he describes himself as an idealist and an optimist and thinks travel is an integral part of bringing about social change. We caught up with him along the way during his latest journey through the Middle East – the highlight of which has been watching the stars glow all around him in the Sinai Desert whilst his camel quietly snores next to him!read full interview
