25-year-old Fiona circumnavigated New Zealand’s North Island in a sea kayak with fellow adventurer, James Corfe. During the talk, Fiona takes you through the trials and tribulations of her 2,800km journey. The pair found themselves paddling with dolphins, eyed up by Orcas and roared at by a sea lion.
