it was ok
bookshelves: travel, fact, own-a-copy

A very easy read about to pals travelling around the world on their motorbikes. The pair are likeable for the most part but the detail is lacking big time. I watched the TV show that accompanied the book and that was so much better. They continually talk about the hold-ups & things that go on when they're not on their bikes as being what makes the journey yet things like getting a wallet stolen get are only mentioned briefly, sometimes long after they have happened. As the book goes on it their is less and less mention of anything other than what the condition of the road infront of them is like. Stick with the TV show, it was so much better.
