Adventures in Life

Charles Hammerton

Losing loved ones can leave your entire world shattered. And it’s easy to spiral into depression from there. 25-year-old Charles Hammerton from Falmouth in Cornwall lost his mother, adopted mom, and his best friend in the space of a year and was in a pit of despair.

Charlie decided that he had to take drastic measures and completely overhaul his life. He quit his job in the Royal Air Force, he sold his possessions (including his 3 cars) and went on an adventure around Europe with his rescue pet ferret, Bandit.

After selling nearly all of his belongings, the grieving Charlie got 15k pounds (19.5k dollars) which was enough to buy a camper van and head out on the road. Together with Bandit, Charlie visited 14 countries.

I just discovered your wonderful station! Wow love it....from Barbara Hepworth to the Buzzcocks! Very cool indeed. I grew up as a kid in Cornwall (St. Day and Grampound) in the 60's my family emigrated to California in 1967. My love for anything brewed in Cornwall is strong! I have spent the last 40 years as a Graphic Designer for TV and Print here in Los Angeles, I was also an online DJ for a local station here. So happy to have discovered Source!
