I can't stress how amazing this book is. Written by Alistair Humphreys, it is a mind blowing account of the first leg of his around the world bicycle ride which he started in 2001. It took him for 4 years and 3 months to cycle 46,000 miles, spending only £7,000 of hoarded student loans. The observations and detail of what Al encountered along the wayare shared with the reader in a deeply honest way with no emotions held back. The sheer grit and determination to overcome the physical and mental battles he faces on his epic journey should be an inspiration to all. Simply a must read book!
Free spirited, full of wanderlust and a strong penchant for adventure. Ever the music aficionado and always striving to seek out and explore the best that the alternative side of life has to offer. I dedicate this blog to anything and everything that inspires me in life. People, places, photography, music, literature. I hope it will inspire you too. Enjoy!
