Named a #3 travel influencer for 2023, Lisa Niver talks travel on broadcast television at KTLA TV Los Angeles, her YouTube channel. In her new book, Brave-ish: One Breakup, Six Continents, and Feeling Fearless After Fifty (September 19th), Lisa chronicles her incredibly “brave” journey starting from scratch in her parent’s house to becoming an award-winning travel expert with a hundred and two countries and six continents under her belt.
A challenge book with the heart and personal grief of Wild by Cheryl Strayed and Braver Than You Think by Maggie Downs, Lisa took on the adventure of “50 Before 50”:
• She ate sushi for the first time, despite having already traveled Asia.
• She sat on the bottom of the ocean in Mexico and learned how to identify different species and aggressive behavior in sharks. • She raced BMWs in the rain in California and zoomed 120mph in a Lamborghini on a track in Vegas.
• On the border crossing between Tanzania and Kenya, she fixed a toilet for people who had never done a bucket flush before.
• Despite never being more terrified, she took the plunge to sky dive as her 50th challenge.
