I had never heard of Elspeth Beard until a couple days ago. Now that I have, I know I have another travel hero to look up to.
Elspeth Beard circumnavigated the world on her motorcycle when she was 24 – the first british woman to ever do so. Accidents, adventures, danger: her story is one that you HAVE to read.
The crazy thing? Nobody has written a book or done a movie about her amazing adventure.
I suggest giving her adventure a read here.
