TPZ184: Cycling, Packrafting, & Hiking with Alice Bowers

She had an ordinary life as a geography teacher before setting out to live a life of adventure.  She is passionate about traveling and human powered exploration and spent 13 months cycling the length of Australia and New Zealand and then from Indonesia to Nepal.  The journey opened her eyes to the kindness of strangers, but also to the harmful effects humans have on the environment.  She also spent a month paddling the rivers of rural Bangladesh and recently returned home from walking the length of Iceland.  You can learn more at her website  Alice Bowers, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.

For 24 days Charlie Tokeley trekked and packrafted a remote stretch of Chilean Patagonia, documenting previously unexplored glaciers and traversing unnamed rivers. During this time he saw not a single person or sign of human activity. He describes it as breathtakingly stunning at times and inexplicably hard the rest – a rainbow in a rainstorm.
