Empowered Women: One Woman. Two Oars. And a Thousand Miles of River: The Solo Adventures of Stephani
The idea of traveling alone is daunting for many of us.
But for Stephanie Neyhart, her passionate love affair with exploring the great outdoors has been a constant throughout her whole life, stemming from her childhood growing up in rural Canada.
Since she first left home at 17, Stephanie has travelled throughout the Arctic, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, and North America. Surviving war zones and teaching students along the way, today she encourages women to explore the world and remember that the journey is just as important as the destination.
