There's a lot more to finishing a big race, walk, ride, or climb than bragging rights. It's the kind of feat that fuels your confidence in every area of your life.
Today is the start to our next big adventure, walking the 509 km (300 miles) of the Lycian Way in Turkey. We were lucky to connect with the woman who first linked all these ancient paths in Turkey together into one long journey, and she's here today to talk about why she did it and what you can get out of a big physical endeavor.
Our guest is Kate Clow, the originator of the Lycian Way, Turkey's first long-distance walking route as well as the St Paul Trail, in the Taurus mountains. She is British & Turkish and has been exploring Turkey's mountains for 20 years. She is currently the head of the Culture Routes Society, a Turkish charity dedicated to making new routes, preserving old roads and assisting villagers along the routes to benefit from sustainable tourism. Kate Clow's book, The Lycian Way: Turkey's First Long Distance Walking Route, is available on Amazon and directly via CultureRoutesInTurkey.com. It is the definitive guide to hiking this epic route along the coast of Turkey. Kate, we both truly appreciate your time and dedication to introducing us to this new adventure.
