Very interesting book

This is a very well written and insightful story. It only suffers from a silly and somewhat misleading title. A more appropriate title would be "African Brew: A search for the ultimate cuppa by motorbike". It is a series of very interesting encounters along the back roads of Africa. The author is kind and patient, and not prone to hyperbole. It isn't a motorcycle-centric book like " Long Way Down", but it is vastly more insightful into the people and cultures along the way.

Really enjoyed this book. Very entertaining(anything that has bikes, tea and travel has me hooked). Opens your eyes to what life is like on another continent. Unlike similar books (Long Way Down came to mind)you get a real sense of Alan's emotions throughout his journey particularly as he was biking alone not with his best mate and a camera crew!
