Well Written Account of an Amazing Solo Journey On A Bike
on 25 June 2017
Alastair is a good writer which makes this book a real pleasure to read. I love his self-deprecating style and his descriptions of the many places he visited and people he met brought the book to life. As well as being about travel, this is about humanity and the universality of our lives. whether you live in England, Poland or Syria the same things will matter to you - your home, your family, friends etc etc. Alistair skilfully moves between the subject of travel and culture and the book is all the better for it. He sounds like a bit of a scruff all of the way through and the photos are great. This isn't a book for bike nerds who want to know about how he stuffed his panniers, what he took to sleep on and whether he owned a Garmin - it's a book for everyone who enjoys a tale about a great journey. I have also purchased his book, Microadventures - also a good read.
