Alex Mason is a multi-discipline adventurer, writer, speaker and designer. In 2015, she decided she’d had enough of sitting at a desk and her 9-5 routine. So, she took a 9 month sabbatical from her job and set off to hike the Pacific Crest Trail in America. It was an adventure that would change the course of her life.

In the last 5 years, Alex has summited Mera Peak in the Himalayas, walking the Pacific Crest Trail again, but in the opposite direction, hiked the length of New Zealand along Te Araroa trail, cycled across Australia on a bike called Priscilla, explored Indonesia, rowed the English Channel, walked the Appalachian Trail, and then, at the beginning of 2020, rowed the Atlantic.

In this episode, Alex shares her story and some of the tales from her many adventures. We also talk about how societal norms can be a barrier to living your own best life and why failure is not only a good thing, but is something we should actively embrace.
