Anna McNuff describes herself as a British born adventurer, speaker, writer and mischief maker. Last year she was voted by the Lord Mayor as one of the City of London’s 50 most inspirational people. The daughter of two Olympians, she used to represent Great Britain at rowing. After ‘retiring’ in her mid twenties, she began darting around the world on the hunt for new and exciting endurance challenges. She talks here to Uneasy no settle about her ‘pants of perspective’ - a pair of special leggings which she dons on a dark day to get back to reality. She tells how she ran and became inspired by 93 year old Betty ‘The Hutch’ Hutchinson in the US and how she despises ‘dream dumpers’ – those people who like to destroy dreams with negativity.

After backpacking extensively, playing drums for the band Genesis and working on building sites, Chris had his epiphany moment whilst working on a sheep farm in Surrey. Farming was his dream destiny and he spent some time running a sheep farm in Sussex. On meeting the founder of Rough Guides at a party, his path took a new turn and he began a stint as a travel guidebook writer. Almost in full circle, he eventually moved to a remote farm in the Alpujarras, south of Granada in Spain with his wife Ana where he still lives today. He used his experiences of working the land, shearing sheep and living remotely to write a book called ‘Driving Over Lemons’ which has been a huge success, and many other titles followed on.read full interview
