Life – Not by Design.

Hello everyone,

Once again I found myself chatting with another person who has let life lead him where it will, and our paths have crossed many times, now I share a bit of his story with you.

Sebastian ‘Bas’ Pot, told me how his ‘life by accident’ attitude has seen him through an interesting journey from being part of the original “Eco Challenge” races in Morocco to becoming the safety officer for 22 seasons on the television show, “The Amazing Race”, which took him around the world too many times to count. Listen in right here;-)!

Now settled – sort of –  in a small hamlet in the foothills of the Pyrenees with his partner Mary and two children. He still finds himself occasionally working with television and helicopter crews on high plateaus in South America, setting up camp on the banks of wild rivers in Alaska – or anywhere in between. But far from resting when at home he and his wife accidentally started a small business renting Bell Tents to be part of the growing “Glamping” scene to share the beauty that captivated him, and many of us, to settle in this stunning region of France.

Enjoy, Share, Comment, Like.

Peace, Joe

Here are some photos Of Bas & Mary’s small part of this big wide world.
