“I’ve had people thrusting babies in my arms, telling me to take it and give it a better life. That makes me well up even thinking about it now. It’s not something you can get over.“

But perhaps that’s a bit of paternal instinct kicking in – as we’re talking, Reeve’s 11-month-old son can be heard in the background. “It was really hard to be away. It’s the most amazing job but I’ve got a little tot now who is more exciting to be with than wrestling a crocodile which I was doing last week. Bizarre!“ he laughs.

Despite this new-found perspective, Reeve still has more travel left in him, and he’s still “hungry“ for it. 

“I meet people who to travel outside their village is outside their comprehension, let alone getting in a place and travelling to the other side of the world,” he says.

“As a traveller, you want to rack up as many things as you can, whether it’s bungee jumping or trying some weird food everyone says not to take. Just bloody do it, because it’s a privilege that we can.”
