Bonus Episode 1 | Coronavirus Complications with Becky Sampson




In this bonus episode, I catch-up with Becky Sampson. Four months after our initial conversation, coronavirus has changed plans for many. Becky tells me how it affected her round-the-world trip.


In today's episode we talk about:


  • Walking the Coast to Coast Track in Australia - in 9 days!

  • Taking epilepsy medication across international borders

  • The limits on anti-seizure medication for long journeys

  • The unwanted side-effects of Sodium Valporate

  • Seeing orangutans in Sumatra

  • Being surrounded by monkeys in Angkor Wat without tourists

  • Deciding whether to come back to the UK because of coronavirus

  • Struggling to be repatriated

  • Flying over the mountains in Central Asia

  • Planning hikes in the UK

  • Plus, what does 'adventure' mean to Becky?
