Kate Harris grew up in rural Ontario thinking she would become an explorer just like her hero, Marco Polo. To her dismay, she realized virtually every place on Earth had been discovered, so she set her sights on Mars. While working towards this goal, the overachieving scientist abruptly left grad school and set out on a 10-month, 10-country tour, trekking 10,000 kilometers across the fabled Silk Road. Harris talks to Nam Kiwanka about her experience.
