Meet Sarah Outen, traveler/adventurer, on her expedition around the world — a human-powered journey.

Sarah is about halfway on her “London-to-London: Via the world” expedition — where Sarah use only human power (including bicycle & rowboat) to complete a continuous loop around the world. Read more about this expedition on her official site: Sarah Outen.

I met Sarah through my sister, and did a photo-shoot with her. I was supposed to take her photos with Gulliver (the boat) on the water. Unfortunately, it was very windy that day. It wasn’t safe to put the boat on the water.

We still manage to shoot and have some fun, despite the wind and constant water splash here and there.

In this small cabin, Sarah will sleep for about six months when she’s crossing the Pacific Ocean.


Alone, but still have radio for communication

Sarah was scheduled to launch from Choshi Marina to Vancouver today (29 April 2012). However, due to weather condition, it will be postponed

The crossing will take about 5-6 months. It will not be an easy trip, but I surely hope it will be a safe one.

She is very strong… I’m sure she’ll make it.

    • I felt happy, proud, and inspired… it’s a mixed feeling :-).
      She is a strong and fun person. I’m sure she’ll be alright.
