If, like me, you are looking for a personal account of life on the road filled with little insights and descriptions of what it takes to ride nearly half the way round the world on motorcycles then this book is a great disappointment. It takes nearly half the book, until they have to flee Spain, before it gets anywhere near to getting into its stride. The earlier sections, especially the journey through Russia, is more like a string of extracts from Wikipedia, Trip Advisor, travel guides and tourist information leaflets with durge and dirth in great and unnecessary depths about the history and architecture. I read the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy in half the time it took me to read this book. It really is a great cure for insomnia.

What an exciting book ! As a fellow female motorbike rider and travel enthusiast, I found this book especially motivating and fun to read. It is superbly written, providing a well rounded combintion of historical fact and descriptive wording emphasising genuine experiences of the places they travel and the people they meet on this mighty adventure ! Written with an obvious joy for being on the road it encompases all that you could ask for in a travel memoir; adventure and risk taking, not to mention their fair share of trials and tribulations along the way ! The writer does well to keep you on your toes (especially on those dirt roads!) and it certainly wets the appetite for motorbike travel, or any kind for that matter !

This is a gripping tale of adventure and courage through lands which most of us know only from childhood stories of the mysterious East. It is written simply and movingly and allows the dissolution of the inevitable barrier between author and reader. Her writing lets us feel it is ourself stepping off our motorbike before the gates of Samarkand. It is an inspiration for readers of any age, reminding us that such high adventure is still possible in today's society for any of us with the will to step forth into the unknown.

I enjoyed this book because it captured the flavour of travelling independantly and on the cheap as is mostly done only by young people. It had an element of "winging it", without having too much forward planning, and at each point they went with the flow, which seems to me the best way to experience new places. It is inspiring to see that age and sex need not hold you back. It also covered areas of the world not often written about - I particularly enjoyed the African portion of their travels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aussie Girl keeps moving with the big boys RTW 18 July 2013
By Trudy Slade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If your a female and inexperienced touring motorcyclist, wondering if you can ride around the world, with a bunch of Rowdy RiffRaff men then wonder no more. Keep moving is a great page turning read from one women's point of view learning the in's and out's of motorcycle touring and keeping up with her more experienced men motorcycle riders. This lady rider enjoys the historic buildings along her journey and gradually master's the physical stress and strain of motorcycling around the world. Her journey follows the unpaved and paved routes through Russia, Mongolia, the Stans, Africa and the more pleasant routes through Europe.

The journey is my destination. Clyde

5.0 out of 5 stars Such an enjoyable read 7 Aug. 2013
By Teresa Halling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What a great book, so cleverly written. I felt that I had entered into the world of a motor bike rider and got to understand why someone would choose such a mode of travel! The story line was gripping and had me itching to pick up the book as soon as possible again to find out what happened next. The descriptions of each place provided enough information to be informative (I learned so much!) and interesting but not too much that they became boring. The reflections on life and the people provided great food for thought. The stories of border crossings and brushes with authority were quite shocking. I found this a truly satisfying read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An adventure not to be missed! 30 Mar. 2014
By JHAN LEACH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well, I couldn't put this book down as it was such an enjoyable read. The graphic ride kept me enthralled until the end. The challenges and exciting experiences resulted in a journey that can be best described as amazing. Many of the places visited in Africa are now no go areas and reading about them was a delight. At times, I felt like I was with them on the journey, eating at exotic restaurants, visiting art gallery's, vivid descrptions of the landscapes they were travelling through and experiencing dangerous liasions.This read as a journey of a life-time that could not be experienced by the faint hearted. Congratulations!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Travel Story 1 Nov. 2013
By Brian Travel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've never particularly been drawn to motor cycles but I have a passion for good travel stories. I just loved this book especially as the author and her husband have a certain amount of nativity about them. Then add a dose of spontaneity and a thirst for adventure and throw in a certain amount of guts and determination. Yes, they just had to Keep Moving.

The African section of the trip was hair raising in parts and I just loved the bit where Monica grabbed their passports from the policeman and sprinted for their bikes to make a getaway leaving him standing open mouthed.

If you are considering a similar trip or just an arm chair traveller this book has a lot to offer.

This is travel at its best and a great read. Now I'm just waiting for Monica's next book.
