2: 'Go,' said 'and wander'
Narrator John Rowe
Early in 1821 John Dundas
Cochrane set off from Dieppe to walk, with diversions en route, the several thousand miles to the north-east tip of Siberia. As a pedestrian traveller his feats were prodigious. He walked on average nearly 20 miles a day and completed the first lap of his journey from Dieppe to St Petersburg, a distance of 1,600 miles, in 83 days. He once managed 96 miles in 32 hours. After many adventures he finally reached the peninsula of Kamchatka, married a local girl of 14 and brought her back with him to England: 'the first native of Kamchatka', Cochrane tells us, 'that ever visited happy Britain'.
