Meet Rosalind.

Meet Rosalind. 69 in two weeks one can only marvel and be inspired by the life she has led. We met last year in Mauritania and then randomly bumped into each other again a month later at a bus station in The Gambia. We spent the next two weeks or so travelling together and I can honestly say I have never travelled with anyone as energetic or adventurous. In the past 30 years she has climbed mountains, worked on luxurious yachts, gutted fish in Alaska, cycled various countries, trekked through Greenland, spent years working in Antarctica. Add to this breaking both legs in her 60′s and surviving two bouts of Breast Cancer. She is a real character, an inspiration for anyone looking to get the most of life. She currently calls Scotland home and spends her days attending to her 1 1/2 acres of land. However she will soon get her backpack ready again for her next adventure: North East India, Bangladesh and Bhutan.

Have you met someone (old or young) who has really inspired you to continue living your dream?

    Great picture. She looks stunning, fit and joyful. She surely is a great motivator for those complaining about meaningless stuff!
    PS: she’s still invited to come and help with my garden!!!
