Neela Gerken

Neela Gerken is a special needs teacher from Germany, who spent all together 1.5 years cycling, rock climbing and learning Mandarin in China. Her first solo trip was a year in Australia at age 16, and after a break of ten years to get a degree, get married, get divorced and get a long term career, she is back on the road for good. Her teaching supports her travel, and her travel enriches her approach to teaching. She plans to continue detailing her journeys on naiveorbrave.com.
