Part Two of The Great Expedition has Begun!
19th June - 13th July - Northern Europe
As June unfolds to high summer, that intrepid explorer the Right Hand Man is on the road again. PART TWO of the GREAT EXPEDITION 2023 sees the mad fool and his motorcycle take to the majestic highways of northern Europe.
All in all, the Great Expedition will cover 16,000km across 24 countries. Expect old friends, emotional reunions, new faces, hair cuts, beard trims, moustache waxing, barbershop banter and the Right Hand Man showing off Captain Fawcett’s award winning Gentleman’s Grooming products to all and sundry! Good man! Above all, the idea is to connect with the European barbershop community and share good times on their home turf.
As the Right Hand Man says, in a moment of unusual clarity: ‘In my experience it’s vital to cement relationships in real life and make the effort to meet people on their own patch. I always prefer a handshake over a Zoom call! Just as the traditional barbershop experience is hands-on by nature, tangible moments of connection are the heart and soul of good, honest trade.’
In Part Two Captain Fawcett and his barber chums will be hosting magnificent barbershop events in some of the world’s great northerly cities. First to the Netherlands and Germany! Then forward to Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, the mighty Nordic nations whence courageous seafarers once set sail! Next, the Right Hand Man will carve a path through the ancient Baltic landscapes of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. And ride ever onwards to Poland and the heart of Europe! Lastly he’ll be heading back into Germany, to Luxembourg, Belgium and at last to the Hook of Holland, where we trust the wind will stand fair for Harwich and grant our wild wanderer a safe voyage home.
