On the Bucket List Life Podcast today is Sarah Davis. Sarah will soon attempt to become the first female to “Paddle The Nile”. Sarah’s day job is in risk management, and it is fair to say there is a significant amount of risk involved in this ultimate challenge. This challenge will see Sarah paddle 7000kms and raise some much needed the CARE Foundation. To attempt to become the “FIRST” to do something in the world is on my own personal Bucket List, so I am fully intrigued as to what it takes. Sarah is already a legend in my view just by putting this challenge in action. I am sure you will enjoy this episode.
