EPISODE 13: NIGHTMARE IN NAMIBIA
How would you cope if you were involved in a horrific accident in the African bush, thousands of miles away from home?
In 2008, ex-City banker, Claudia Stachelhaus, upped sticks after being made redundant to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip across Namibia. On the second day of her adventure, the group tour bus she was travelling in overturned at high speed & Claudia was thrown out of the vehicle onto the dirt track & knocked unconscious. She woke to find herself screaming, having sustained a serious neck injury, but being out in the bush, help was hours away &, when an ambulance finally arrived, it ran out of petrol.
In this fascinating tale of survival, Claudia also reveals how her coping strategies & positive outlook on life set her on the road to recovery.
Claudia Stachelhaus was born in Germany & has lived in Australia & South Africa. For the last 15 years, she has been based in London. Since leaving her career in structured finance, Claudia has been hosting supper clubs, teaching cooking classes in the community & travelling as much as she can.

At the beginning of the pandemic, Claudia started “Toiletries for the Streets” handing out basic toiletry packs to up to 100 rough sleepers who had no access to facilities. Funds are always needed to keep the service up & running. For more information & how to donate: https://gofund.me/cf582e42
