EXPLORERS POD  | Erden Eruc | Human solo powered around the world 

 

If you ever had a dream and thought it might not be possible – Think again! We had a great time with Erden Eruc on the show last week. He is truly a testament that dreams can come true, that anything is possible and above all, life is a gift, live it. Erden recently completed the first solo circumnavigation of the Earth by human power which started in 2007 and took 5 years and 11 days. He is one of the leading ocean rowers in the world today, holding 15 Guinness World Records related to ocean rowing and the circumnavigation of the Earth. He is the recipient of the 2013 Citation of Merit from the prestigious Explorers Club and one of the 2013 Adventurers of the Year – “Nine individuals changing the face of global adventure” selected by Outside Magazine. He is listed in the 2009, 2012, 2014, 2017 and 2018 Guinness books of World Records.
