The sad thing when reading these epic adventures is just how many people who will be inspired by these stories will never consider repeating Chris's adventures. Our role as good European neighbours would definitely benefit from a few more people escaping the full English mindset and checking out what the rest of the world has to offer, within easy reach by ferry. Of course people still do get involved and I hope to join their number at some stage in the future.
Chris's book is yet another great reminder that we have more in common than that which divides us. Kudos to all Saharan adventurers.
Historically informative and an insight into a lost era of travel in North Africa. The author is engagingly self-critical and writes with humour and a light touch, recounting several trips into and across the Sahara by various means of transport and differing levels of success.
Potential readers should be aware that despite his output the author is not a motorcycle fan but a traveler who chose the motorcycle because of his job as a despatch rider and for its cheapness to go long distance. If you're a ADV owner looking for tales of dune bashing and gear tips you'll be disappointed.
Hopefully we'll get another collection soon.
