Description

Travelling the Length of the River Amazon - Jacki Hill-Murphy


Jacki Hill-Murphy MA, FRGS, is an explorer, writer and speaker who has travelled to some of the most inhospitable places on earth to re-create the journeys of daring women adventurers from the past. In tracking valiant women who left inhibition at home and journeyed into the unknown, Hill-Murphy pays tribute to their invincible spirits and achievements. Jacki says: “We are all adventuresses who need to travel to be who we are and we are better people for it.”

Jacki has recently returned from recreating the 1769 journey of the first women to travel the River Amazon. Her expedition took her from one of the sources of the Amazon, a stream in Ecuador, to the Atlantic in Brazil, a journey of 4,200 miles. Jacki and her team travelled in dug out canoes or hammock boats and had many dangerous and colourful adventures along the way.


There will be a bar in this fundraising event to raise money for Becky Condron's place on her Expedition to the Llanganates in search of the lost Inca trail
