A rolicking adventure tale
on 3 March 2014
A kick up the backside for everyone who dreams of jacking in their jobs and going on the hunt for adventure, Beads in the Highlight perfectly captures the highs and lows of life on the road. With vivid descriptions of landscape, people and local traditions, you're taken on a journey from the cold climes of Canada all the way to windswept South America, on a journey that leaves you feeling inspired and in awe of people's kindness. Living out of a rucksack is tough, but as we find out in this book, living out of a motorcycle is even tougher, and yet the protagonists deal with setback after setback with enviable poise and good humour. A perfect example of the resilience of the human spirit, the book reaffirms that it's always possible to achieve your goals, whatever obstacles you might have to overcome in the process. A fine read and one which makes you want to stop dreaming and start doing.
