Jun 28, 2022

My guest Alice Morrison is an adventurer. She's the Indiana Jones for girls. She's done so many things that would test anyone's endurance. The Marathon des Sables, the Tour d’Afrique, she was the first woman to walk the full length of the Draa River in Morocco where she lives. She's trekked through the Sahara and completed the Everest Trail Race. She's written several books, and the most recent is Walking With Nomads. If you’ve ever wanted to go on a big adventure, this interview is for you!
