30 – Shot in the Face While Camping and the Lost Desert Runner

This week we’ve got two very different travel stories to tell, but both end up with an epic fight for survival. These stories are nerve-racking and they may have you feeling grateful that you’re forced to stay inside during quarantine.

Jules kicks us off with a story about an Italian man with a love for running in extreme conditions. He signs up for an endurance race through the Sahara Desert in Morocco. When a sandstorm comes, he worries that he may have lost time and won’t win the race. But soon he realizes that his situation is much more dire than his running time; now he’s on a mission to simply get out of the desert alive.
