Recently, I attended an inspirational talk by Grant Rawlinson (aka Axe) who originated from New Zealand and is currently based in Singapore. He is a professional speaker, adventurer and explorer. He used to be a professional 7 – side rugby player during his younger days (did that for around 25 years) but it ended after an injury. Despite that, he found new challenges — extreme adventures and he has already completed 50 expeditions across 5 continents, including reaching the summit of Mount Everest in 2012. I was really awed by how captivated he is by the concept of human powered exploration. and most definitely, these would not have been made possible without the full support of his wife, Stephanie, and their twin daughters, Kate and Rachel.
