I became an adventurer gradually.
At university I started dreaming of big adventures. So I saved up and then, after graduating, set off to cycle round the world.
4 years later (and £7000 / $10,000) I arrived back home, wrote a couple of books, and began trying to earn a living from my adventurers.
Now I earn money from writing and speaking and save up until I have enough cash to go on the next adventure (which gives me more stories to write / speak about).
