Sarah Outen who we first meet through Expedition & Wilderness Medicine when we provided her with medical training for her Indian Ocean row has just crossed over the border from Kazakhstan into China as part of her epic round the world journey.
My journey is all about human power – to make a complete loop of our planet using only a rowing boat, a bike and a kayak. It is simple in theory, but in practice it will be monumentally challenging. The distance, the logistics, the unknowns, extreme climates – it will be huge in all respects. But it will also be an incredible experience with lots of stories, which my team and I plan to share with people all over the world.’
… find out more about Sarah and her grand adventure;
I am Sarah Outen, a young(ish) adventurer at 2.5 decades old, hooked on life and wild places, and inspiring others to follow their own dreams.
One day I will be a teacher,be it in a classroom or not, and for now I am enjoying the opportunities to share my experiences and encourage other people to find and redefine their own boundaries.
I love adventure – the feeling of not quite knowing if or how you will make your destination, of pushing the limits and testing yourself against yourself and the elements. My love of the wild led me to a degree in Biology at the University of Oxford and in 2009 took me out to sea on the biggest adventure of my life, rowing across the Indian Ocean. It is this that has inspired me to go on to more crazy, wonderful journeys. http://www.sarahouten.com/
