Thursday Thought – Gulliver, Nelson and Hercules

Note: Each Thursday I will post a little something to inspire us to finish the week strong. These Thursday Thoughts will be a quote, piece of music, artwork, or inspirational video.  Congratulations, you made it over the hump and let’s finish the week together.

Sarah Outen is a British Adventurer who is on a quest to use only human power to complete a loop of our planet.  She is travelling over 20,000 miles by bicycle, rowboat and kayak.    So far she has travelled from London to Japan.  As she pushed out into the Pacific Ocean heading toward Canada, storms pushed her back.  She will renew her journey in 2013. 

She is a great inspiration and someone to follow.  Check out her website, London2London

I love how she named each of her vehicles.  I think each is now a friend and even a part of her family.  We have Gulliver (ocean rowboat), Nelson (river kayak) and Hercules (cool bicycle).    

She has several short videos available chronicling her journey.  Here is a good video that shows the various emotions involved while rowing alone across the ocean.
