A much better ghost writer (credited this time) made this trek across three continents by any means of transportation (except big commercial airplanes) enjoyable. Charley is being Charley and he is much more aware of the privileged life he leads and makes an effort in learning and interacting in a mostly non failing way with the people he meets on the way to Sydney.

The team that comes along is less interesting in a way than Ewan (who is not there but gets mentioned a few times) but I kinda liked that. Russ still remains an enigma but I don't read these to get to know the team but to see what Charley gets up to and how he gets to the journey.

In this he drives, rides, gets to point A to point B in inventive and sometimes dangerous rides. Bikes are a much better bet than boats.

Enjoyable but not as thrilling as Race to Dakar.
