Ants B-K will be at the Winter Warmer
Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent is a travel writer and journalist who specializes in solo journeys through remote regions. In 2006 she co-piloted a pink tuk tuk 12,561 miles from Thailand to England, raising £50,000 for the mental health charity Mind and simultaneously setting the Guinness World Record for the longest ever journey by auto-rickshaw.
She penned 'Tuk Tuk to the Road' about her journey, but since then she's ridden a small, ancient C90 down the remains of the legendary Ho Chi Minh Trail, circumnavigated the Black Sea and spent three months exploring India's remote Northeast state of Arunachal Pradesh. She's written three books, writes for Overland Magazine, The Guardian, The Telegraph, BBC 4's From Our Own Correspondent and more, and gives numerous talks.
Her latest book, Land of the Dawn-lit Mountains: A Journey Across Arunachal Pradesh - India's Forgotten Frontier (Simon & Schuster, 2017) was Shortlisted for the 2018 Stanford's Adventure Travel Book of the Year. She’s the recipient of the Royal Geographical Society's 2019 Neville Shulman Challenge Award and her next journey, before she arrives at The Winter Warmer, will see her exploring the Naga tribal territories of Northeast India and Myanmar.
