Greatest Hits: 3 Years Alone on Foot With Sarah Marquis

Inspiring Female Adventurer Series

We’re pulling past episodes from the archives to highlight Women’s History Month! This episode was originally published in February 2016.

Sarah Marquis traveled 10,000 miles on foot from Siberia to Australia—alone. It was an epic walk that lasted three years, during which she survived the mafia, drug dealers, thieves on horseback, temperatures from subzero to scorching, dangerous wildlife, and many other life-threatening occurrences. 

Her tales of survival, nature connections, perseverance, various encounters, and overall incredible spirit are documented in her book Wild by Nature.

Sarah and I discuss the deep meaning behind her extreme walking adventures and the lessons she’s learned from these experiences. Get ready to be inspired as we explore themes of following your curiosity, trusting your intuition, and creating deeper connections with yourself and the world around you.

Would you go on a walking adventure? What lesson from Sarah stood out to you the most? I’d love to hear your thoughts and hope you’ll share them by sending me an audio message.
