Miles from Nowhere: A Round-the-World Bicycle Adventure
By Barbara Savage. Foreword by Tara Austen Weaver. The story of Barbara and Larry Savage’s sometimes dangerous, often zany, but ultimately rewarding 23,000-mile bicycle odyssey, which took them through 25 countries in two years. Along the way, these near-neophyte cyclists on their 10-speeds encountered warm-hearted strangers eager to share food and shelter, bicycle-hating drivers who ran them off the road, various wild animals (including an attack camel), rock-throwing Egyptians, overprotective Thai policeman, motherly New Zealanders, meteorological disasters, bodily indignities, and great personal joys.

I was excited to get this book, and have enjoyed reading it, it's basically a diary of what a couple went through, from the first decision to sell everything, quit their jobs and head out. I appreciated that they mentioned folks along the way that they met, isn't that what it's about? And family that encouraged and even joined for a bit. Perfect book to read before bed, the dreams are wonderful.
