In April of 2011, British adventurer Sarah Outen set out to circle the globe using only her own power. The plan was to row, bike and paddle her way around the planet. Sarah, who had already rowed solo across the Indian Ocean, had intended for the journey to take approximately 2.5 years to complete and she was well on track to achieve that goal, having paddled across the English Channel and ridden her bike across Europe and Asia. But last year she was hit by a hurricane while attempting to cross the North Pacific and the expedition has been stalled out since. In April of this year, she’ll head back to Japan and start the Pacific crossing once again.
Yesterday Sarah released this excellent video to remind us of her journey so far. She is far from done, but Chapter 1 sure looks like it was an amazing experience.
