JACKI HILL MURPHY
Jacki has spent the past few years exploring and filming some of the most inhospitable and remote places on earth.
In 2007 Jacki left her job as an English and Drama teacher and set off down the Bobonaza in the Amazon Basin in a dug-out canoe.
This became the first adventure in her project to recreate the journeys of the early women explorers; spurred on by the fusion of amazing, unsung women from history and her love of travel.

"..delightful stories of travel obscurities and surprises that only a genuine explorer can communicate as she seems to remember every tiny detail from all her senses and has a way of describing people that is heart warming and memorable.”
