"Real adventures start when things go wrong and the road ahead is unwritten." -Tom Williams



Do you dream of being a castaway? Tom Williams is the founder of Desert Island Survival, where he takes people to remote tropical islands, teaches them survival skills, and leaves them for several days to be castaways.



When a friend of the show - Anna Mascaro - Former guest and founder of Terracotta Travel - told me about what Tom was up to - I knew I had to have him on the show.



The first part of his trips are survival lite - what you might experience watching one of the survival TV shows, but the second half of the trips are true - stranded on a desert island with no food or shelter situations. Which can lead to some incredible experiences and profound changes



For many people that go on his trips, their lives are never the same, with their newfound confidence, connection with themselves and nature, and the reset that comes from taking care of yourself in nature.



What you'll learn in this episode:



* How to win a race to the North Pole* The key skills for surviving on a desert island* The biggest accidents that can happen on desert islands* How Tom finds the perfect goldilocks Islands to take guests* How nature heals us* What happens on a desert island survival trip
