Celebrating the incredible diversity and achievements of centuries of women who broke free of convention to straddle the world by foot, bicycle, ship and even camel! Armed with easels and writing paper, archaeological trowels and collectors’ ‘reticules’ they followed their dreams through deserts and over mountains. Sometimes celebrated but too often forgotten we will explore the lives and inspirations of women including Jeanne Baret, Lady Hester Stanhope, Isabella Bird, Mary Kingsley, Gertrude Bell and Freya Stark. Husbands and other male travelling companions optional!
