The Adventure Page

The adventure starts here


Hello. You have arrived at the vinceunlimited Adventure page.

The vinceunlimited website is currently being re-coded and this phase of the project has not yet fully commenced.

The Adventure page is a new section in the vinceunlimited universe designed to collate all the relevant stuff off the site for a particular type of reader, in this case the adventurous sort.

It is set out as a reference source with the articles listed in reverse date order and can be navigated by scrolling back through the content or jumping about using the vSearch titles below.

In some ways I felt a bit of a fraud.

It was only exceptional circumstances that led me to be able to savour the delights of crossing the Atlantic the 'proper way'. Sure I could afford it if I really wanted to, provided a few other luxuries were forsaken. And I had previously figured that one day I may part with the thousands needed to make the trip. But I would probably be a lot older. Much like the other guests queued in the bleak warehouse that Cunard seemed fit to welcome their clients onto the most sought after ship in the cruise business.

The few tri-colour balloons did nothing to enhance the surroundings and the shabby makeshift desks which processed us out of America seemed cheap and tatty. It was the last I would see of cheap and tatty for the next six days.
