*NEW RELEASE* Sightless from Sicily to Southern France

A blind man’s journey by any means, from ocean and air to road and rail, experienced through the four remaining senses

A blind man’s journey by any means, from ocean and air to road and rail, experienced through the four remaining senses

When Chris, at the age of 40 years, very suddenly lost his sight, he thought that his world had come to an end. He questioned how he would make his dreams a reality and how he could beat sight loss. When he heard about the 19th century, blind explorer, James Holman, he became curious. After much contemplation, a whole lot of patience and bucket loads of sheer determination, he came up with a crazy plan. . He would traverse the same route as Holman’s first expedition did and make a comparison between modern day travel and a journey of the past.

Engross yourself in his crazy Multifaceted Mediterranean Mobility Meander, as he travels sightless all the way from Sicily to Southern France. See how he manages to enjoy his epic journey through the sense of Sound, Smell, Taste and Touch. Join him as he undertakes some of the very same challenges that Holman faced and follows in the footsteps of the first blind adventurer to circumnavigate the world.

From climbing the active volcano, Mount Etna, on Sicily to sea kayaking along the Amalfi coast. From eating a pizza at its birthplace in Napoli, to feasting with a local family on Sardinia. From hiking in the forests of Tuscany to cycling on a tandem bike around the wall of an ancient town. From swimming in the Mediterranean Sea to making the perfect crème brûlée with a French chef. Chris will keep you laughing as you join him on the adventure of a lifetime using his remaining four senses. You will be entertained as you see how he undertakes to prove his #BlindManCan theory. A story that culminates with a life changing twist.

How I Became The Blind Scooter Guy by Christopher Venter'

Join Chris as he embarks on the adventure of his life. Touching twenty countries and travelling close to 30 000 km over 8 months, all the way from the southern tip of Africa to the shamrock fields of Ireland. The journey was a publicity stunt creating media opportunities for paediatric healthcare service providers. And, of course, Chris relished the opportunity to taste his very first Guinness at the source. But was the trip all the way to Dublin worth it?

Battling ill health and broken friendships this rollercoaster ride eventually cost Chris his eyesight. He relays the story of his adventures on the road, medical trauma and recovery with passion and good humour. After his devastating prognosis as a blind man, Chris thought that sight loss would cause his adventures to end but it has rather ignited his curiosity. Chris’ inspirational scooter ride and journey to recovery and how he has overcome the obstacles he has faced has not slowed down his adventurous spirit! #BlindManCan
