The Adventurer & Her Husband

Polly Keith Scotland's new book chronicles globe-trotting backpacking adventures and helps readers plan their own!

Every trip is a building block to the next trip...And after every trip, we lay out everything. What did we not use on that trip?...And that includes food. So we're getting better about packing lightweight... Polly Keith Scotland

Polly Keith Scotland's new book The Adventurer & Her Husband takes readers along for the hike in places including Nepal, Cambodia, Canada, the Rocky Mountains, Utah and even Mont Blanc. She stopped by the KBXE studio to talk about the book, how her adventuresome life began, and how she hopes her book inspires readers.

I really hope people unplug, get away from the stress of life. It might take you a day or two or three to unwind, but once you are out in nature...you just get transformed when you are out there by yourself or with your soul mate and sharing those moments, the quiet moments. - Polly Keith Scotland
