Don't know what's going on, I love Bettina Selby's books but can't read this on tablet or Kindle as it's in a strange image format which displays the page far too small.

A remarkable travel accounts from a courageous lady. 9 July 2014
By Victoria Tunba - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bettina Selby has got to be one of my favorite travel writers. You feel like you were right there traveling with her. She clearly gave the readers all sorts of information about all the countries she set out to tour, i.e., her writing reflected on the country's history, political and socio-economic situations and all the hardships and joy she experienced. I like her style of writing. It revealed to her readers what she experienced throughout her journey, her astute observation on each country--its people and their lives-- and how she adapted admirably to any situation she encountered. As a female traveling on her own, she expressed very clearly not only the hardship she encountered but also the joy and freedom she got due to the mode of transportation-- her bicycle. I'm not sure how many female travelers had traveled on a bicycle in the early eighties, to countries such as Pakistan and India, the exotic Nepal and hiking to the Himalayas. I admire her courage and strong will to complete this difficult journey. I truly love reading this book and I wish I had half of her courage and stamina to travel the way she did.
