Further ‘SUP the World’ Adventures – With John McFadzean

John McFadzean returns for another chat about his adventures, including his recent self-supported-sortie across Scotland and his 2019 visit through Lebanon to paddle in Syria, where he chalked up another two countries on his impressive list.

John's quest is to SUP in every country in the World, an impressive objective and before 2020 arrived he had achieved 45.

Transnistria isn't a place figuring highly in the must SUP bucket list, but in this episode John talks about his trip to the country which isn't a country!

If you haven't already listened to John's first appearance on the show, then check out Season Two, Episode 21.

John's website SUP The World is well worth a visit, with enough stories and experiences to fill a season of podcasts.

John was recently longlisted for the Brandt New Travel Writer Award and you can read his entry here
