Wow! What an episode.

Liam takes us to his first job interview which is more mysterious than a blind date, on a his impromptu solo bike trip through China and Mongolia and the way he burned the candle at both ends to be with his girlfriend (now wife) by flying back and forth from Tasmania to London. His willingness to say yes in the moment is truely incredible.Let's dig in.
