Motorcyclist Steph Jeavons and I talk about travelling through all 7 continents, the challenges of India, the benefits of travelling by motorcycle on your own and what happens when you run out of money. We also talk about how she got to Antarctica.
Heather Ellis and I talk about her book ‘Ubuntu’ which chronicles her solo overland journey through Africa on her Yamaha TT600 in the 1990’s. Starting with a light-bulb moment her story has twists and turns like the roads she rides.
We chat to Jason Hamasu from Oregon Trail Off-Road about their 44 day challenging overland expedition retracing the historic Oregon Trail through 6 states. Their route followed the original wagon trail set out by pioneers in the early 1800’s as closely as possible.
Motorcyclist Ed Gill and 4x4 overlander and filmmaker Jon Beardmore discuss both their adventures that took similar routes through Central Asia. We talk about “winging it”, lessons learnt, logistics, staying safe, politics and life on the road.
