About the Author
Chris Pountney is a self-described 'adventurer and author'. He describes himself this way because it sounds much better than admitting he's an unemployed homeless man who really likes riding his bicycle around. Originally from the UK, he hasn't been there very much recently. In fact, he's spent the last seven years cycling all over the world in more than seventy countries, and one day, when he was bored, he decided to write about it. He's currently out on the road somewhere, cycling across Europe and Asia again. To track him down and for more information, please visit: www.differentpartsofeverywhere.com

In short, he has done a brilliant job. There is a great mix of the detail that makes situations come alive with clever linking sections to condense time, a good structure that plays with when we are told information - rather than being as chronological as the journal was forced to be by being 'written on the road' - and most importantly, the book has captured the humour and quirks of Chris' approach to travel, life and a search for love. So very much recommended for people who enjoy books about travel and/or bike touring. It will make you want to get out there (mostly... there are a few quite stressful bits that I don't want happening on any of my trips!).
Despite those moments, this book may inspire you to do some bicycle touring yourself... even if you've already found the most beautiful girl in the world.
