Ms Swale Pope has travelled more than 20,000 miles facing extreme danger, bitter Siberian winters, wolves, axe men and desolate loneliness over nearly five years. to become the only longest self supported solo world traveller.

Her international best selling book Just A Little Run Round The World, is Rosie’s understated, yet gripping account of the resilience of the human spirit to triumph over every adversity.

Rosie says she enjoys being inspired to tell stories of her adventures and hopes her messages are full of the life enriching lessons we all need to hear in these challenging times.
