AN avid traveller from Lancing is attempting to seek out 40 ‘time twins’ from across the globe before he reaches his 40th birthday.
Richard Avis, 38, decided on meeting a diverse range of people who share his date of birth, rather than ‘slumping into a mid-life crisis’.
He said: “I reached a point in my life in my late 30s where I started to compare my life with other people. Was I successful? What does success look like? Was I young, middle-aged, or old?
“As I, and the rest of the team, enjoy travelling and are fascinated by global cultural diversity, this seemed a perfect opportunity to develop those interests.”
So far Richard and his team have met a Dutch National Body Building and Model Physique champion, an Irish novelist and the mayor of an Italian town ‑ Richard’s highlight so far.
