She financed the trip through her own savings from working low-wage jobs since the age of 18. The world is too amazing. Meet Fredrika Ek, 24 from Sweden, who 2 years ago started The Bike Ramble, which is a bike trip. Fredrika: Not necessarily from being one of few girls making journeys like this, but it's a sad fact that being a woman in this world equals discrimination. What has been a highlight thus far? The one thing I dream of now is to give girls that weren't as lucky, the possibility to fulfil theirs.

This takes different shapes in different countries and cultures, but it is there. A map for each chapter would have been helpful to follow Fredrika's progress.

National borders and the boundaries of pain. Did you undertake any longer bicycle rides before setting off on this trip? Also, a map throughout the text would have been cool, instead of just listing the place names as she progressed. To celebrate the 50th birthday of the populous 911 family a new book has been released with stunning photos by the famous automotive photographer René Staud. In the early spring of 2015 Fredrika strapped everything she owned onto her bicycle, kissed family and friends goodbye and took her first wobbly pedal strokes into the unknown. From Sundsvall to Sundsvall - by way of the world. Fredrika: Nothing big enough to stop me from riding. I was lucky enough to be born into a society where I could head out to fulfil my dreams.

After 51 000 km and 45 different countries, she finished a truly great adventure, arriving home in Sweden. Whether you run 3 kilometers or 50, this book will change how you look at your running; the ultimate outdoor woman Emelie Forsberg captures the magic of a life spent among the mountaintops and shares her passion for running. Awesome photography and the narrative was fascinating. More than epic views this journey have given me the reality check of a life time, getting to personally see and experience how the planet we share is just as brutal and cruel as some corners of it are pretty. Louis-Philippe displayed that following dreams and achieving outstanding outcomes in adventures are possible as an amateur and without the help of massive budgets and technical support. Every single penny helps, and I am endlessly grateful to every single one of you deciding to pitch in. What inspired you to do so? If you feel like escaping from modern monotony and leaving everyday life behind, there is no better way to travel and see the world than on a bike.

Over doorsteps and straight into people's homes and lives. Any you wish to share? Luck to have been born into the privileged life that comes with holding a passport from a country like Sweden. My last year before setting off mainly consisted of running between 3 jobs to save up cash to travel with. I admire Fredrika's courage and what she has accomplished for herself and women around the world. I'm riding a Surly Long Haul Trucker. What I eat changes greatly depending on where I find myself. The vastness of the Aussie outback.

Riding some of the most dramatic landscapes to be found on New Zealand listening to Lord of the Rings was an experience in itself. In my mind, it was not any more complicated than that. Would have benefitted from more information from the countries later in the book. Packing everything onto a bicycle, you must travel light? After all it is my home. Like the time fredrika got hit by a car, the story ends with her crying on the road side.

Search for adventure, love for nature, an endless curiosity of the world and people around me and a sometimes unhealthy appetite to push my limits are a few of them. Who do you look up to? I couldn't ask for a better travel buddy. How did you prepare for this journey? Starting from my hometown Sundsvall, Sweden I spent a year crossing Europe and Asia to land's end in Singapore. Just having one pot and a small gas stove is the perfect excuse to escape loads of cooking! Everything 'should' have been great, with amazing sea, great food and smooth roads. And it must be fought. She started this journey in March of 2015.

Fredrika: I have too many favorites! For having completed one of the worlds last great adventures, the European Adventurer of the Year 2010 is awarded Ed Stafford. Driven by curiosity, and a burning desire to find out what awaited on the other side, she crossed deserts and mountains, national borders and the boundaries of pain, over doorsteps, and straight into people´s homes and lives. At home :- Spirit of the Outdoors would like to thank Fredrika Ek for their time. To walk from Siberia to Australia during a period of three years also demands great planning and amazing will power. That 10th day - the knowledge that every kilometer I pedal have an impact of the future of less fortunate women and girls around the world. I can't think of anything more important than to bring attention and support to ActionAid's global work on securing and defending the human rights of all the women and girls in this world that haven't been as lucky as me.

I am a very ordinary girl with occasionally unusual ideas. After 6 months in Australia and on New Zealand I flew out to Ushuaia, Argentina to take on my 4th continent which I'm still crossing. Take my word for it! This is a narrative that people the world over should read not just for women's rights but for civilazation as a whole. I have a million reasons for being out here. Make sure to give her a follow on social media Instagram- Website-. The world is a true piece of wonder, and it would be a damn shame not to take the plunge and head out to explore it.
