Vagamonde: Chasing Euphoria and Getting Hit by Reality
Vagamonde: Chasing Euphoria and Getting Hit by Reality
by Benoit Charra
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.95

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are planning pedalling in to the unknown...or not - a page turning read., 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An entertaining, informative, explicitly honest account concerning the reality of an adventure that began by Benoit and Michèle burning all their everyday bridges in order to pedal off together into the unknown, spirits buoyed by their shared starry-eyed notion of the sense of adventure, freedom and idealism awaiting to be experienced across the world of their proposed travels.
It is intriguingly presented and their accounts of the culture shocks and difficulties met and overcome are peppered with a vernacular description that leaves no doubts in the mind of the reader whenever they are seriously disenchanted with what they encounter. They do not gloss over the down side of their various encounters, and this must be invaluable information to anyone attempting to cycle the world - even with the advantage of possessing younger legs. Little by little their vision and dreams are eroded, and given the descriptions of their various encounters and meetings with the native peoples of the countries cycled through along the way the reader marvels at their tenacity. The vagamondes encounter hostile terrain equably, they meet lovely people along their route and embrace differing cultures readily, and marvel at where they find themselves on a lonely planet. But eventually hostile drivers and stone throwing urchins; rip-off vendors of accommodation and supply stalls; personal tragedy and the dietary health issues of the day as they pedal up and down mountains and across forbidding continents and islands, take their eventual toll until exhausted they return home. It is a well written and captivating account of a journey and allows interesting insight into some of the aftermath too. Anyone who cycles should read this book, as should anyone who supports adventurers who brighten and inspire our own armchair safe lives!

This is an excellent item that serves safeguards the camera without interfering with the works. The recipient was delighted. It is easy to put on the camera and has a very smooth seductively silky surface feel to it - well made and ingenious.

5.0 out of 5 stars This item is invaluable to any family with four active children to manage month on month., 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We purchase this excellent product every year. It allows a column for each of four very active children's activities to be recorded side by side and to be instantly compared 'on the day' allowing parental oversight to be easier.
The convenience of this ready 'day to day' comparison of engagements for each current month is invaluable.

A. Wainwright Desk Diary 2014

Edition: Diary
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars I buy this desk diary annually and consider it to be excellent quality and value for money, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am again delighted with the Wainwright desk diary. I mis-ordered the item as a 2013 edition with Orbiting Books Ltd who were completely understanding, user friendly and gave me a full refund albeit they could not by then provide the replacement item. I appreciated their courtesy and service was Five Star.

The actual order came via EUS.a.r.L and they too were efficient and the item excellent and value for money quality.

Thank you to both providers for their excellent service.

1.0 out of 5 stars I am not criticizing the lens per se but this is the wrong item for my needs - I was misled by the illustration., 2 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Milenco Universal Mirror Lens Only
I was attempting to purchase an extended wing mirror for towing our caravan - one suitable to attach to VW Tiguan wing mirror and not a replacement lens.

I wish to return these items but as I am on holiday until next weekend, this is the earliest opportunity to do so.
