5.0 out of 5 stars Great Adventure
This was a great adventure written in a way that made it hard to put down, inspiring, informative, makes you laugh, you can almost feel and therefore share in there angst and almost despair in places, to feeling over all joy at obstacles overcome. Well done Will and Kate on your epic adventure, and thank you for sharing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have remained a blog.
This was undoubtedly a great adventure and experience for the couple involved. Unfortunately, it doesn't make great reading. Obviously culled from a blog; where it should have remained. There are some great motorcycle travelogue out there (read Dan Walsh, Nathan Millward, Ted Simon etc.), but the relative ease of publishing these days means blog grade fare is sold for...

Epic journey by notorcycles without tv/book deal in place first, without free bikes and without a legion of acolytes to capture those "spontaneous" touching moments.

Thanks guys really enjoyed your book

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read about a serious journey., 26 Mar 2014

I read this after reading two other adventure motorcycle travel books and it was far and away the best. Well written, interesting and full of practical insights and helpful advice.

I enjoyed it, especially the way this very down to earth couple just 'got on with it' and soldiered on, come what may.

It is pretty concise and focusses very much to the trip. Thankfully the author did not feel the need to pad it out with page after page of tedious over description or personal views on politics etc.

I would recommend it. Its an honest readable travelogue, even if you are not into motorcycles..

A very good and very real story about travelling long distance by road on M/C.
Food for thought.
Sometimes a bit repetitive, but so is any long journey!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly realistic and humanistic tale, 15 Feb 2014

This review is from: Wollongong to Woolwich (Kindle Edition)
A great book, written with love and care. It describes the journey from a very personal angle. If you want details of tyre pressures or shock adjustments, then look elsewhere (There are plenty of tech geek forums/sites - home to armchair experts - 'All the gear, but no idea')
This is the diametric opposite - a notebook from a man and wife battling their way across some of the most hostile terrain on earth, focusing in the human interactions which are at he true heart if a memorable journey. Together as a team, using each other's strengths to supplement the weakness of the other, it's a true team effort where the pair are pushed to breaking point in order to complete an adventure.
If you've ever wondered "could I do this?" Then this is the book for you!!!
The author is also a great speaker and lecturer - go see him if you get a chance !

This book tells the sorry of a couple's trip on motorcycles from Australia to England. It is an interesting, easy read and really highlights the different cultures and especially the affluence of the West, which we take for granted. A really enjoyable read
