I think that in the common place adventurers, women and men, both have a unicorn status. There are more people living the 9-5 than there are people who live the adventure life. That being said, I think for those who live the adventure life, we are often only visible within our own niche. RTW bike riders are known to bike riders, RTW sailors are known to sailors... Maybe we should reach out and try to connect across modes of transport/ passions of choice. I'm sure we all have so much in common!
Let me go first, I'm a bike rider who travelled solo from Australia to the Netherlands and i would love to connect with women from other adventurous walks of life who relate to the above.
Besides that, I think we are often modest in telling our stories. It's not written on our forehead what we do/have done. We share selectively, making sure we don't brag or offend other people, making sure they don't feel like we overpower. And there might be a lesson to learn, we can share our stories with more people to inspire while keeping our integrity. Showing we are ordinary human beings who did some more than ordinary things. Let's share that we sucked at it at first, that we dropped our bikes and had no idea how to tighten a chain, but that we did it anyways!
