This is the first episode of “Bad” Behavior! We discuss why we decided to start the podcast, how we’ve been ‘bad’ this week and two incredible female travellers – Belinda Kirk and Cecilie Skog.
“I’m on a mission to make adventure more accessible, to bring about a societal change that brings us closer to the natural world, to challenge, to risk and to each other”
Belinda is an English adventurer, expedition leader, scuba diver, rower, camera woman, fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Guinness world record holder and activist.

“Climbing in thin air and crossing poles is very much a male dominated affair. To keep up with the boys I train a lot in order to be thoroughly prepared. This has paid off, both mentally and physically”
Cecilie is a Norwegian adventurer and the first woman to conquer the seven summits and both poles!
