    EPISODE 2: CYCLING THE WORLD

    EPISODE 2: CYCLING THE WORLD

    In 2017 artist Hannah Scott got on her bicycle and went off to cycle the world.  She discusses life on the road, the challenges she’s faced, meeting her fiancé, escaping Nepal as the Covid19 pandemic hit, and the family ties behind her famous surname. 
    This week I’m thrilled to be joined by Hannah for the second episode of my Extreme Holidays Podcast.
    Hannah is an award-winning interdisciplinary British artist.  Her work reflects on humanity’s relationship with the natural world and endeavours to raise awareness of ecological issues. She’s also undertaken some of the world’s most inspiring journeys including the Trans Mongolian Express through Russia and China, trekked extensively in the Himalaya, and over 3 months completed the Mongol Rally from London to Mongolia in a second hand ambulance. www.hannahscott.com 
    You can follow her artist exploits and travel journeys on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hannahscott_art/

    EPISODE 1: DEADLY DISEASE IN PARADISE

    EPISODE 1: DEADLY DISEASE IN PARADISE

    The prolific Danish writer and poet, Peter H. Fogtdal, shares some of his extreme travel stories including contracting a deadly disease at a health spa in Thailand and nearly being kicked out of an ashram in South India! 
    I’m delighted to be joined by Peter for the first episode of my Extreme Holidays Podcast.
    Peter is an award-winning writer and poet who lives in Portland, Oregon, USA.  He is the author of fourteen books and describes himself as a ‘human being, racoon lover and a spiritual guru in his own mind’.  Formerly a lecturer at Portland University, one of his favourite past times is watching squirrels from his porch. He also loves to travel. https://www.facebook.com/PeterHFogtdalOfficial
    Peter’s novel The Tsar's Dwarf (out in five languages) and his poetry collection My Crimes of Gelato, are both available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Peter-H.-Fogtdal/e/B001K8V47O?ref_=dbs_p_ebk_r00_abau_000000
