Tired of the cubicle job at BBC, in 2003 at 29 years old Lois quit her job and set out on a solo adventure riding her 225 Yamaha Serow from Alaska to Ushuaia. You can read about her adventures travelling to the southern most town in the world, at the tip of Argentina in her book, Lois on the Loose.
She had barely returned back home in the UK before she was planning her next adventure to Africa where she took in the Sahara, the Congo and Angola. Four months and ten thousand miles later, she documented this adventure in her book Red Tape & White Knuckles.
She is now working on her third book about her travels in Iran in 2013/2014. Lois is also a freelance journalist, broadcaster and speaker, giving presentations about her adventures to many different types of organizations.
She's the co-founder of the Adventure Travel Film Festival with husband, Austin Vince, with whom she crossed the USA in a vintage Russian Sidecar outfit.
