There are a lot of adventure seekers out there that take life by storm, and against all odds, come out barely surviving the most extreme of hardships. But one story, in particular, defies those odds to the highest degree.
Sarah Outen, of London, decided to trek the circumference of the world by using only her own human power. After Sarah graduated Oxford University, her father unexpectedly passed away in 2006, which led her to consider the possibility of living on the ocean for several months. It was then, that her adventure started to take form.
The 30 year old travelled the world and finished her 4 year 217 day mission on November 2015, by rowing under the Tower Bridge in London as she was greeted by her followers and her Fiance, Lucy. Sarah’s journey began in London in April 2011. From there she kayaked, rowed, and cycled over 25,000 miles to reach London again. She is the first person in history to row from Japan to Alaska in 150 days.
This unparalleled female athlete has been through grueling winter storms with temperatures reaching -40 in Alaska,
