I've always dreamed of going to Paris, sipping coffee in an outdoor cafe. Now lets add riding an awesome bike with a large basket, stopping at an outdoor market grabbing a big bunch of flowers and off I go..
Thank you for writing this beautiful story.
I was drawn to the author throughout for her clear intelligence and honesty about many aspects of her life and travels. I feel, however, she spent too much time trying to satisfy her boorish travel companion and too much time telling us how he needed to be considered...whereas I would have kicked his butt!
Good book, buy it!
I think what I enjoyed most of all was the authenticity of the book - she more or less "tells all" and "tells it as it was" which I assume must have been painful for the writer but on the other hand it is the reader who ultimately benefits as not a single word rings false.
As it happens the book I read before this one was "The Orient Express" by Graham Greene. In that book Christohper Hitchens wrote in the introduction
"Those who travel or or depart, says the poet Horace, only change their skies and not their condition. The meanness of everyday existence is found at the bottom of every suitcase, and has in fact been packed along with everything else. Nonetheless, it is sometimes when they are far from home and routine that people will stir to make an unwonted exertion of the spirit or of the will".
This book has a lot of what Hitchens, Greene and Horace were talking about.
On an entirely different (and less personal) level this book works as a travelogue of a bike trip through France as perhaps few get to see her - because the writer has in essence gotten a VIP pass by virtue of her status as a travel writer. There is also much about cycling including in Part 2 some encounters with various Tour de France participants and athletes.
In other words plenty to keep the reader transfixed as we pedal along with the author through La Belle France.
