Afternoon Tea with Jon Muir, Sydney November 12
Saturday, 12 November 2011 from 17:00 to 21:00 (EST)
Sydney, New South Wales
The Adventurists Afternoon Tea with Legend of Adventure Jon Muir. Sydney, November 12 2011.
Not content with taking tea in Madrid, Philadelphia, London and Edinburgh already this year, The Adventurists next teatime foray ventures even further afield, to Sydney, Australia. And since it’s not only our first Australian mission, but a bloody long way to go, there really is only one Australian adventurer who we wanted to take tea with. And that fine gentleman is Jon Muir.
Jon is the very epitome of a legend. Just one of his gravity, nature and death-defying feats would mark him out as a Great. Add them all up and he is nothing short of superhuman. He’s the most famous adventurer in Australian history, Australia’s most brilliant climber, and one of the most versatile adventurers on the face of the earth today.
Jon’s illustrious adventuring career is littered with ‘firsts’. He made the first Sherpa-less ascent of Everest from the South, pioneered a new route to the South Pole and was the first person ever to walk solo and unsupported across Australia. The latter odyssey, which he dubbed The Great Mission, was an epic 128 day, 1600 mile journey, every day of which Jon describes as being harder than summiting Everest. During the journey Jon survived on bush tucker and lost 30% of his body-weight.
Quite apart from these incredible firsts, Jon has also walked unsupported to the North Pole, kayaked 5000km through shark and crocodile infested waters, walked solo to Australia’s Geographic Centre, self-filmed numerous documentaries and penned a book, Alone across Australia, about his Very Long Walk.
Return flight to Sydney anyone?
