British adventurer Alastair Humphreys has ridden his bike around the world, walked across India, and rowed from Africa to South America. In 2011, however, Humphreys had some of the biggest adventures of his life – and he never even left the United Kingdom.
For a year, Humphreys went on microadventures – small, low-cost trips close to home. Why did he do this? “I started to think that it was possible to have an adventure anywhere,” he explains. For his first trip, he went hiking with a friend around the M25 – a 188-kilometer road that goes all the way around London. Other adventures included swimming in the River Thames, sleeping outside on a hill, and going on a mountain biking trip. Humphreys learned something important from his microadventures: We find adventure when we try something new.
Humphreys wanted other people to make this discovery, too, so he decided to share his idea. He challenged people to go on microadventures and send him four-minute videos of their trips. He asked them to do things like climb a hill, go away for a weekend, or choose a random place on a map and go there. People from all over the world accepted his challenge and posted their videos on Twitter.

A MOVIE-GOER’S GUIDE TO LONDON
London has been the setting for many popular movies – from James Bond to Harry Potter. So if you are visiting the UK’s capital, why not follow this walking tour and explore some interesting movie locations?
Start at the London Film Museum. Here, you can see a collection of items from many famous movies. The museum is near Covent Garden – a famous market. And while you’re there, you should check out some of the amazing street performers.
Next, walk down King Street, then along New Row to J Sheekey. This restaurant is a great place to see TV and movie stars. And it’s not too expensive; you can get a great meal for under £25.
Nearby is Leicester Square, known as London’s “Theatreland.” Many famous movie premieres are held in the square, and it is also home to the London Film Festival. One of the exits of the Leicester Square underground station appears in the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
To get away from the crowds, you should spend some time in Leicester Square Gardens. Here, you’ll see a statue of William Shakespeare. Shakespeare wrote his most famous plays while he was living in London. Many of his plays, such as Macbeth, were later made into movies.
From Leicester Square, walk down to Charing Cross Road and then to the National Gallery. Here, you can see famous paintings by artists like Vincent van Gogh and Leonardo da Vinci. This museum was also a location in the James Bond movie Skyfall.
Finally, go south on Charing Cross Road, past the underground station – which appears in Thor: The Dark World – and follow the Mall. At the end of the Mall, you’ll see Buckingham Palace, the home of the British royal family. The palace appears in several movies, such as The BFG and The King’s Speech

Some birds find their way home from thousands of kilometers away, but they aren’t the only animals that do that. Every year, there are amazing stories of lost animals traveling a long way to find their owners. One of the most famous of these was an American dog named Bobbie.
In 1923, the Brazier family visited some relatives. They took their dog Bobbie with them. While they were there, Bobbie ran away. The Braziers looked everywhere, but they couldn’t find him. Finally they made the sad decision to go home without Bobbie. Then, six months later, a thin, dirty dog arrived at their home in the town of Silverton. It was Bobbie! He was back home after traveling more than four thousand kilometers across the country.
A newspaper did a story about Bobbie’s adventure. Soon the story spread across the country and Bobbie became the most famous dog in America. Because of his amazing journey, people called him “Bobbie the Wonder Dog.” In 1924, Bobbie even appeared in a movie about his trip, called The Call of the West. Bobbie was so famous that people sent him letters from all over the world.
Bobbie died in 1927. In 1932, the town of Silverton decided to have a special “pet parade” to remember him. People put colorful clothes on their animals and took them through the town. The pet at the front of the parade was Bobbie’s son, Pal. The Pet Parade in Silverton still happens every year in May to remember loyal animals like Bobbie.
