A thoroughly enjoyable read - entertaining and educational!
on 7 July 2000
My current passion is reading travel related books as I will invariably never have the time or money to do anything like it myself! Having exhausted the various adventures of Bill Bryson I moved around a variety of authors and happened upon this particular book. The rave reviews that fellow Amazon users had bestowed upon this particular piece encouraged me to buy the book and make my own mind up. Having done so I found the book full of interesting information, comical capers and fascinating facts. Peter Moore tells the story in his own inimitable way and enjoys a special rapport with his audience that he seemingly knows will be enjoying the tales he tells so delightfully. From someone who travels so well he is cleverly able to impart the real feel of his adventures to those of those who don't have the same opportunities. So an excellent read and well recommended to anyone who likes travel, adventure and a bit of fun. Oh, and prepare to finish the book very quickly!
