Summary

Shortlisted for the Edward Stanford Adventure Travel Book of the Year 2016.

In November 2015 Sarah Outen completed her five-year, 25,000 mile journey looping the planet by cycling across Europe, Asia and North America and canoeing and kayaking across the North Pacific and most of the North Atlantic.

An incredible adventurer and an inspiration, Sarah has met with devastating catastrophe (losing her rowing boat, Gulliver, after a tropical storm in the Pacific and then Happy Socks before a hurricane hit her on the Atlantic), motivated people she met to do amazing things and encountered unbelievable beauty in the natural world.

This is the story of her adventure and inner journey and a call to action, to redefine your own boundaries, to be courageous and to dare to do.

Sarah is a champion of a human being. this beautifully written book follows the highs and lows of a truly epic circumnavigation of the globe. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Good tale of super endurance

If like me you are inspired by others who do the near impossible you will love this.

I like that she narrates herself too. It feels more real.

Not very interesting

A detailed day to day description but not a lot of depth and meaningful content.
