Forward – Preview – a taste of what’s to come

What makes you press your start button? Kicking of something new is never easy for any of us. It’s not meant to be, otherwise everyone would be doing it. Pressing your start button often requires at least a basic plan, purpose, plus a leap of faith!

We all go through periods of struggling with our current situation. Maybe just the work monotony, or lust to try something or someplace new? It’s all to easy to create obstacles in our minds, I’ve been in that situation numerous times. It doesn’t need to be to hard though, so long as you at least make a decision to set of, what-ever it takes, to just press your start button.

Press Go shares my own experiences in a plain speaking, easy to access, simple style, just like most of my travels and business ventures; keep it simple and just get on with it. Publishing from around mid 2022, they’ll be a series of work along the same theme of exploring your own spontaneous momentum. The book includes 12 ventures of my own, an easy read of inspiration (that’s the plan!) plus summaries sharing everything I learned. Fast and easy to access the key info, with the aim of helping anyone who wants a little extra spontaneous inspiration.

Topics covered include: momentum, spontaneity, exploring, emigration, travel, mental well-being, writing, photography, charity, inspiration, calm, movement, vehicles/transport, self-employment, free-spirited, change, aspirations, venture, liberating, potential.

What’s the Route1million link?
It’s a reference to some of the milage I’ve drove and rode. It was never a goal, it just happened that way. Not at all meant in a boastful way, much of that mileage was during transport and courier work, as well as overlanding. It’s a part of the PressGo project which could continue to be expanding into some new digital exploring and finding ways to share experiences from those miles.

Project of work includes;
Press Go book, photography, NFT/digital exploration – Motos, Lephoto, motoring and travel items.

Press Go < venturers > new book

Inspired by my fathers ventures as he set out to explore free’r far away lands – at a time when escaping from your own Country was frowned upon, if even for an adventure, sound familiar!?

Istvan V1st was my father, who I never got to know so well.  His own adventure ended abruptly, riding his electric scooter to Safeway’s, irony hey.

Sharing all that I’ve learned – to help you flick your own start button to the go mode >


Discovering spontaneous combustions along lives crazy highway.  “That’s the Reason”
Crazy life of travels – spontaneous overland momentum

Forward >

Istvan randomly decided one day – he’d move his entire house contents 150 miles to a bungalow in London, a slight issue was ‘he didn’t actually own a bungalow in London, nor anywhere else.  This wasn’t going to stop him, after-all he’d already transported himself from Budapest to Britain, fleeing from the Russian uprisings without documents, no idea where he’d ultimately end up or what he’d do once he got to ‘where-ever’ he was heading.  He must have literally just decided one day ‘I’m not a tree – I can move’ – so of he set with just a bit less than he could carry.    

Press Go started out with inspiration from Istvan’s willingness to ‘go see for himself’.   Spontaneous, mystic influences from our past and its ability to bring out the curious adventurer in us, however it goes.  It’s my hope that it can be helpful, in some way, maybe jogging a memory, mood, emotion or inspiration.  Some things that might be useful with your own ideas and ventures, however you like to see it.  “That’s the reason”  as Istvan liked to put it, when-ever he had a simple crazy plan.  

What evolved from my own, ‘no real crazy master plan’, just turned out to be, a million miles worth of bumpy roads.
Plus some eclectic lefotos from over a million overland miles
