Show Notes

In this episode I chat to Adventurer, Author, TV Presenter, Public Speaker and Podcaster, Alice Morrison.

Many moons ago, Alice and I met at a 1920’s themed birthday party in the South of France. At the time we were both decked out in feather boas and flowing dresses, but oh how times have changed. 

Alice currently lives in The Atlas Mountains of Morocco, where you will at one point witness the sound of the wind clattering through her window shutters.

Alice starts her story in Edinburgh where she was born, her time living in Uganda as a child, studying Arabic and Turkish at university, her time teaching in Cairo, a move to London where she worked for the BBC 24 hour news channel, a subsequent move to the north of England and what led her to running marathons through the desert and trekking with camels.

We talk about writing her first book in her 50’s, the gratitude she feels towards her parents for guiding her in her choices, the value of going ahead and trying things, even if you think you may not be naturally skilled at them, and … her narrow miss with a giant boulder.

Welcome to my chat with the wildly inspiring and absolutely no nonsense, Alice Morrison.
