Ep. 562: 20,000 Miles Around the World on Foot - Angela Marie Maxwell
When Angela was ready for a new chapter in life, she wanted to go big. The PCT, AT, or other thru-hiking trails weren’t enough. She “wanted the world”. With nothing but a wheeled cart and her imagination, she set off on what is truly the adventure of a lifetime, a 5-year walk around the world.
She recently crossed 20,000 miles and is back in the US, on her way home to Bend, Oregon. Also, her 72-year young mother is currently keeping her company via bicycle.
Angela is also walking with a purpose to raise $20,000 to build a safe shelter for girls saved from gender violence and sex-trafficking in India.
