A truly inspiring and informative narrative about one woman's journey to finding happiness and her own understanding of the world we live in. Her journey takes you from the impoverished villages of Guatemala and Cambodia to the outback of Australia and Canada. In her brief descriptions I find myself transported to her experiences, feeling every bump and turn along the way.
The book is written similar to an interview and can be read all the way through or leisurely examined for tidbits about everything from crossing borders and aquiring visas to the authors revelations about the beauty and brutality of life. The table of content is organized in a fashion that helps the reader to easily navigate the pages.
"I was so busy working overtime, paying bills, thinking about what to do next, and remember the past that I missed where I was, the present. I hadn't realized yet that we only have the moment, this time today; we don't know if we will have tomorrow."
A great read with some great themes to keep in mind, not just for world bicycle touring, but for the every day hard working man or woman as well!
The middle sections summarize the bicycle trip and explain in a question-and-answer format the highs and lows of people, places, and experiences of the long journey. This section isn't as compelling as the first and last parts, but still good reading. I love how she and Tim solved the problem of people asking them, "Do you have children?"
