Leon McCarron | Adventures on Foot

Leon is a writer, broadcaster and adventurer from Northern Ireland. Much of his recent work has been seeking out stories of humanity and nuance in parts of the world that are often demonized or misunderstood by Western media. In the last few years, Leon has been exploring the ways in which moving slowly and thoroughly affects the stories that we hear and tell. His idea is that by approaching storytelling at three miles an hour, let’s say, reporters can find new narratives and meaning, and are perhaps afforded more time to experience and disseminate a deeper human connection. To this end, Leon has walked a 1000-mile loop of the Holy Land, crossed China from north to south, and travelled on foot in Kosovo, Armenia and on the Yemeni island of Socotra. He has also cycled 14,000 miles across three continents, walked through the Empty Quarter desert, and ridden across Patagonia on horseback. Leon has written two books, the latest of which was shortlisted for the Edward Stanford Travel Awards.
