5.0 out of 5 stars Awe inspiring...., 29 Sept. 2009
This review is from: The Rugged Road (Paperback)
This is simpy a jaw-dropping adventure tale which covers an amazing journey across Africa on a Panther motorcycle with sidecar and trailer in the 1930's. The two women display incredible courage and determination, and cope with the dangers and difficulties with grit and a good deal of humour. It makes other more contemporary accounts of mortorcycle travel seem like joy rides.
My only criticism is that on occasions the the books suffers from some garbled sentences, but given that it was put together from notes and other sources this does not detract from the sheer magnitude of Teresa and Blenks's journey. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this - and recceomend it highly to anyone interested in travel writing, motorcycle journeys, or indeed anyone wanting to be inspired! Excellent.
