James Gardner was one of the first people we ran an online interview with back in October last year. As you’re probably aware, James has been out and about traveling various parts of the world with James “Grot” Holman, making “Crossing Borders”, which can be viewed on Mpora right now!
Thanks to the magic of the internet, we caught up with Mr Gardner, who is currently on the other side of the world, and got him to divulge his traveling list of lasts…
