She began traveling alone to China, India, Nepal, Mongolia and India. Shortly after the race, she and her teammates were informed they must leave immediately as the coronavirus pandemic spreads and countries around the world are closing their borders.

Eva zu Beck, 29, arrived in early March on a commercial flight to the Arabian Sea on a commercial flight from Cairo but struggled to find a way to leave after the island was closed in order to protect the population from COVID-19. With unauthorized flights to land on the island, the only commercial options were to sail to Oman, which closed its borders, or to the mainland, which Eva considered risky due to the health crisis and civil war.

It is a unique and refreshing perspective. I believe in a sustainable, community-driven, sincere path and want to continue to tell stories of communities who live a simple life, one with nature, in harmony with reality of the world that directly surrounds them. In three years of traveling as I made my way through several worlds. My future journey, the way I look at the world and the journey that really initiated everything I do with my content and with the destinations I have visited now was the second country that I visited, namely Pakistan. Uh, the Pakistani adventure turned into a year's stay in Pakistan, ended up spending a year there, uh, travelling the country, filming a video, um, come on some kind of cultural travel, food, in Pakistan I think it was good because I had to explore the part of the world from where my family comes from. Before that I worked at the European Parliament in Brussels, I traveled like crazy and studied French and German at the University of Oxford. For me, these have always been the most important travels when I have had enough time to learn another culture and its people. For me, this is a kind of journey that helps me change the world in a little more detail, challenges me in a positive way, and helps me grow as a human being. And I've always wanted to give women the opportunity to go out and travel alone.
