This episode features Rebecca Lowe, a journalist from London who is cycling around Europe and the Middle East. Three continents, 20 countries, 7,000 miles.
We join Rebecca in Cairo, Egypt about two thirds of the way through her adventure. She left London on 29th July 2015 and has so far cycled through 16 countries in Europe and the Middle East. At the time of recording, she is about to embark on the last stretch of her journey with four more countries to come. The next one is Sudan and she will end her adventure in Iran.
Rebecca shares her experiences in an open, honest and often very funny way. She’s fascinating and has an amazing approach to her work as a journalist and to life in general. We chat about her first days of essentially learning how to ride her new bike (!), the fate of her ukelele, the amazing kindness of strangers, her visits to refugee camps, the work she is undertaking on refugees and women’s rights and of course the highs and lows so far.
