Bear Grylls has become known around the world as one of the most recognized faces of survival and outdoor adventure. His journey to this acclaim started in the UK on the Isle of Wight, where his late father taught him to climb and sail.

“You can't become a decent horseman until you fall off and get up again, a good number of times.
There's life in a nutshell.”
Bear Grylls, Mud, Sweat and Tears

Bear Grylls

“The difference between ordinary and extra-ordinary is so often just simply that little word - extra. And for me, I had always grown up with the belief that if someone succeeds it is because they are brilliant or talented or just better than me… and the more of these words I heard the smaller I always felt!
