The intrepid, amazing, totally awesome adventurer Sarah Outen is currently in Japan, waiting for the delivery of her next mode of transport – Gulliver, the rowing boat for one! Next Spring, Gulliver and Sarah will cross the North Pacific on the next leg of her ‘London2London via the world’ trip.
And where has Gulliver been waiting while Sarah has cycled and kayaked her way eastwards from London to Japan? He has been quietly and safely coccooned at Greetham Valley! And on Monday 5th we waved farewell and bon voyage to him as he set off on the long trip east to be re-united with Sarah. He was ably assisted on his way by two sterling chaps from Stamford Endowed Schools – Sarah of course is an old girl of Stamford High. And a TV news team for East Midlands Today filmed his departure and interviewed Sarah’s mum Helen, who seems amazingly stoic and level headed about her daughter’s exploits.
