Sarah Webb is an Australian journalist who got fed up with writing about other people’s adventures and decided to set off on one of her own.
Here's how the adventurer from Down Under describes herself:
I’m a writer, a busy body and chronic sufferer of little man syndrome, foot in mouth disease and verbal gastro and I have an unfortunate tendency to embarrass myself in public.
Sarah is not one of those bicycle travelers who embraced camping and the great outdoors from an early age. Three years ago, she'd never ridden a bike more than five kilometers, and just four years back she'd never so much as spent a single night in a tent.
It was the sprouting of her first grey hairs that awakened her spirit of exploration. She's since realized that the essential traits of a successful cycle tourist are being:
a little bit crazy, a little bit naive and really itchy in the feet department.
