I hope you enjoy the journey across this amazing part of the world. Three years, three continents, two wheels.
There’s a magical, captivating, buzz about being on the road under Asian skies.As I motorcycled across the continents, I was constantly challenged by things I’d never dreamt could happen. Things I thought I knew well were changed by the adventures…
… Jaipur town is a centre of trade for the surrounding area, and as such it was incredibly busy. The traders seemed to either sell things that they had produced out on the farms, or things that those out on the farms would need. The colours were stunning: rich greens from the vegetables contrasted with bright oranges, reds, yellows and turquoises of women’s saris, and the pink and orange walls of the city and palaces provided the perfect backdrop. All this was going on under a bright blue sky and was spiced up by selections of vivid-coloured curry powders, the sparkles from the many jewellers’ shops and the gleaming white shirts that the men all seemed to favour. The streets hustled and bustled with those out shopping in the markets, the Ambassador taxis, the bicycle rickshaws, the chai sellers, the roaming stalls of stainless steel pots and pans sellers, and camels that moved imperiously through the crowds….
… this fascinating adventure story by a man well and truly bitten by the world motorcycle travel bug… What sets this book apart is the detail in the narrative… It’s the positive human relationships that make this story…. This book will undoubtedly inspire some to follow in his tracks and is essential reading for anyone contemplating such a journey…
I just wanted to say what an excellent book this was. Enhanced by the fact that I was lucky enough to be reading it whilst in Thailand I think. Unfortunately I won’t be in Africa to read the other book I’ve just ordered from you. Anyway, thank you, its opened my eyes and given me the push I needed, as I’m hopefully heading off back to Asia in months time and then with any luck Australia and NZ.
