After Losing 3 Loved ones, Guy Goes on a Journey of Self Discovery with his Pet Ferret, Bandit

"Turn left at the junction, then continue north for 1231 miles. The van bounced and rumbled over the ice-covered wintery roads of northern Sweden. The journey was long, and this far north the daylight hours were long too. My load was light, my only possessions in the world were food, water and a few clothes. Most of the scars on the inside of my arm had healed totally although the mental injury did persist. My trusty adventurous ferret, Bandit, was my only companion at this lonely latitude. Why on earth had I given up my apartment, job, possessions, and civilization to drive to the arctic circle with a ferret, I did wonder? Running away? Spiritual Journey? perhaps I was still mad!? One thing was for certain, I hadn't come this far to JUST come this far." 

That's the text on the cover of the book written by 25-year-old Charles Hammerton from Falmouth in Cornwall who lost his mother, adopted mom, and his best friend in one year. Out of this deep despair, Charles decided to change his life. So he quit his job, sold his possessions and went on an adventure around Europe in a camper van with his rescue pet ferret, Bandit. Together, they drove through 11 countries over 8 months. 

Charles is now an award-winning inspirational speaker who shares his unique story and his passion for choosing inspired actions over settling for average results. Here are some adorable photos from his colorful journey with Bandit.

Scientists Are Speechless At This Arctic Fox Walking 76 Days From Norway to Canada

The female fox trekked the two and a half month journey from Norway's Svalbard islands to northern Canada in the longest recorded fastest movement rate for a fox ever. Researchers at Norway's Polar Institute fitted the young female with a GPS tracking device and freed her into the wild in late March last year on the east coast of Spitsbergen, the Svalbard archipelago's main island. The fox was under a year old when she set off west in search of food, reaching Greenland just 21 days later - a journey of 1,512 km - before trudging forward on the second leg of her trek.
She was tracked to Canada's Ellesmere Island, nearly 2,000 km further, just 76 days after leaving Svalbard. What amazed the researchers was not so much the length of the journey as the speed with which the fox had covered it - averaging just over 46 km (28.5 miles) a day and sometimes reaching 155 km.
