Since the age of 18 Laura has been travelling the world. After working in Mexico, she decided to find an alternative route home to the UK and helped crew a 38ft trimaran from Florida to England. With her team mate Cho, who became famous in 2010 after he helped Ed Stafford become the first man to walk the length of the Amazon, she is now cycling from Manta in Ecuador to Buenos Aires in Argentina. They hope to achieve this by September, when Laura is set to marry fellow adventurer Ed Stafford.
