Not your usual "Went there, did that" slant on travel....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Touching The World: A Blind Woman Two Wheels 25,000 Miles (Paperback)
I am an experienced long distance motorcyclist (google andy mongolia) and I've read, usually in preparation for a big trip, lots of motorcycle travel books.
IF you only ever want to read ONE motorcycle travel book, then this is that book. It makes you understand more about visual impairment, how other cultures "see" blindness and most of all how one man became a saint-in-my-eyes by taking his friend around the World and explaining what he was seeing to her.
It is also a fabulous account of motorcycle travel written by someone who knows how to describe the nuances of daily life that we "sighted" people take for granted and wouldn't bother talking about.
It also saves you from "Death & Dismemberment" by persuading you that perhaps India is best seen from the windows of a troop carrier!
I'm only sorry that I'm in the last few pages of the book, as I never want their journey to end!
