Ishbel Holmes

Adventurer – Author – Speaker

Animal Rescuer

I’ve cycled solo across 20 countries, trekked 100 miles of Patagonia unsupported … pedalled 5000 metres high … wild camped in minus 20 degrees celsius …. pedalled the Pyrenees, Alps and Andes, cycled and wild camped through the Pantanal Jungle …. I’ve followed Che Guevara’s final footsteps across Bolivia …. cycled the largest salt plain in the world …. crossed a country with no money … raced internationally as a velodrome sprinter and road raced around UK for many years. That’s the easy stuff.

I began adult life as a runaway from foster care, spent years homeless, my mental health was so complex from years of trauma I had diagnoses of bipolar, depression, PTSD and anxiety.

I achieve, love and live using mindfulness.

I am passionate about bridging the gap between incredible achievements and incredible hardships, showing through example how to turn incredible disadvantages into incredible advantages.

My mission is to empower and show that even with mental health quirks, you can create and live a life you love.

I am an author, writer and speaker; inspiring motivation and empowerment through stories of adventure.

I am blogging about mental health …
