Q&A with Adventurer Leon McCarron
Adventurer Leon McCarron told Members the tales of his widespread and diverse travels, the most recent being a 1000 mile walk through the heart of the Middle East. The journey took him through some of the most debated, maligned and misunderstood parts of the region - the West Bank, Jordan and the Sinai peninsula. Along the way, Leon collected the thoughts and stories of those he met, as well as travelling on foot through stunning landscapes; rolling green hills, terraced Mediterranean-esque olive groves, epic deep wadis and vast, rugged deserts.
The talk discussed the various layers of culture, history, faith and politics at work in the bubbling cauldron of one of the most complex and compelling places on earth – the Holy Land. Leon stressed his belief in the importance of adventure in life, and how it has come to be a defining part of his own personal journey.
