A Q&A with Explorer Bonita Norris
Explorer Bonita Norris was in conversation with Condé Nast Traveller’s contributing Editor; Michelle Jana Chan at Annabel’s this May, sharing behind-the-scenes stories of her extreme expeditions and her rapid ascent to the top. In 2008, her life changed after sitting in on a lecture by Everest mountaineers Kenton Cool and Dr Rob Casserley. Despite having no previous experience, Norris left the lecture thinking 'I'm going to climb Everest'. Two years later, she did. Bonita has also trekked to the North Pole, scaled the fourth highest peak, Mount Lhotse and been the first British woman to tackle K2. Norris is now working on a book, Savage Mountain, about her journey from novice to the top of the world.
