I would guess that "a little bit miffed" is an understatement. So proud of you, +UncaDoug. Keep up the great work!

Thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Sean Conway on this week's Adventure Podcast. Last year Sean swam the length of Britain, battling cold, 20 foot waves, and jellyfish. He's done all kinds of other crazy things too. A true adventurer!

Really enjoyed this conversation with Lloyd Figgins on the AdventurePodcast, especially the risk analysis of All Is Lost! http://ow.ly/t4eCU. Worth checking out, no matter what line of adventure you're into.

I really enjoyed interviewing Sean Conway, who last year swam the length of Britain, and has done all kinds of crazy things besides. He truly epitomises the spirit of adventure. Hope you enjoy this podcast and blog!

Stop drifting, start rowing!
Introduction
I am a British ocean rower, environmental campaigner, author and keynote speaker. After 11 years working in London as a management consultant, I embarked on a new life direction – in a rowboat.
Bragging rights
National Geographic's "Adventurer of the Year" in 2010. Four Guinness World Records for ocean rowing (first woman to row 3 oceans, first solo woman across the Pacific - and the sad ones: longest time at sea by a female rower, longest cumulative time at sea by a female rower). TED Speaker.

  • Oxford University
    Jurisprudence, 1986 - 1989

Johnson was great. I arrived with a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders, which he worked on with a whole-body approach, starting from the feet and working up. It felt wonderful, and by the end I felt several inches taller. He also gave me some pointers as to how my posture was causing the problems. I very much appreciated meeting a masseur who takes a holistic and therapeutic approach to his clients.
