British Adventurer Sarah Outen talks of the first half of her London2London:Via the World journey in which she is attempting to loop the planet using human power - traveling from London to London by rowing boat, bike and kayak. The latest phase in 2013 saw her row for 150 days from Japan to Alaska in her second attempt to row across the North Pacific. The first in 2012 had ended in rescue after a run in with a tropical storm. Sarah restarts her expedition in April 2014 with a 1400 mile kayak along the Aleutian Islands to the nearest road on mainland Alaska. From typhoons to engagements and remote wildernesses and chance encounters, Sarah shares the stories from her expedition so far as well as her motivations for making the journey and carrying on, even when the odds are stacked against her.
