About Rob Liwall
Rob Lilwall is an ordinary person who, through taking an adventurous attitude to life, has achieved the extraordinary. In the last two decades, he has embarked on expeditions by bicycle and on foot, covering over 80,000 km of the world's land surface. These have included an unsupported walk across the Gobi Desert in winter; pedaling over the war-torn passes of Afghanistan, and being the first person ever to drag a bicycle across the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea. Through learning from the local people he has met at ground level in over 50 countries, Rob has gained a unique perspective on humanity in all its diversity. National Geographic have made two television series about his exploits and he is the author of two books, Cycling Home From Siberia and Walking Home From Mongolia.
