5.0 out of 5 stars Down the Road in South America 26 Dec. 2010
By Al from Shelby - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I couldn't stop reading once I started. A great story and he does not try to sell you on particular touring products. Instead of telling the reader how to tour, he explains how to by talking of his experiences. This allows the reader to take away from the book what they want. No disappointment here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live Vicariously 16 April 2009
By Stephen Parks - Published on
I read the first book before it was on Amazon. Loved it. I just finished this book Down The Road In South America. . . Fantastic. I admire the courage it takes to live out your dreams no matter what other people think and be down to earth about it. If you dream of taking an adventure at some point in your life, read about this one. You'll want to get down the road yourself!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A memoir of adventure 7 Nov. 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
South America is an incredibly diverse place, filled with both ancient and modern culture. "Down the Road in South America: A Bicycle Tour through Poverty, Paradise, and the Places in Between" is a memoir of adventure, following, Tim and Cindie Travis as they ditched the convenience of North America to embark on a journey southwards. Their trip is filled with excitement and exposure to interesting characters and places, with nearly two hundred black and white photographs. "Down the Road in South America" is a must for anyone considering following their footsteps.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST read 16 April 2009
By John D. Hutchison - Published on
Not since Into Thin Air have I read a book that was so hard to put down. Very well written. Even if you can't appreciate bicycle touring you would still really enjoy the adventure aspect of this book. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Down the Road is one of those MUST reads 17 April 2013
By Kathy Saunders - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tim Travis is living his dream, something most of us only talk about. His story takes off from his first book without skipping a beat, and is written in such a way that you honestly feel as if you're right there with him. I could experience all of those adventures without leaving the comfort of my chair. Over his years of bicycle travel, he has honed the details into not only a fascinating true story, but also useful information for anyone else desiring to do the same thing. I have his third book burning a hole in my Kindle, raring to be read. Buy all 3!
