I've cycled round the world twice now. I'm not young, I'm not sporty, I never train and I still can't tell a sprocket from a chainring or mend a puncture.

It's rare for a travel writer to sound judgmental about places they go or people they meet, but the author manages to do it in an underhanded kind of way. Quite a few inconsistencies and weird conclusions in the book i. Overall the author seems a bit The writing is pretty boring, although occasional description and information given about the places author travels through do make up for it.
Overall the author seems a bit high on herself and her ability to cycle at 60 years of age which is impressive, but becomes less so as she continues to beat you over the head with it. I had big hopes for the book, but couldn't wait to finish reading it. Aug 19, John rated it liked it Shelves: Unlike her other travel books, Mustoe decided to present a very long trip in highlights by "theme": Well written, but might be a turnoff for someone expecting a linear, place-by-place narrative.

She is an inspiration. Wish she were still out there biking around and writing about it.

Lone Traveller: One Woman, Two Wheels and the World
She is a very practical and determined person who also has an amazing understanding of human nature, which, in my opinion, is how she survived so many different cultures with so many different attitudes toward women, especially traveling alone. It is a story of too many close encounters with disaster, running low on supplies, water and food, packing too few clothes and becoming d Don't try this at home: It is a story of too many close encounters with disaster, running low on supplies, water and food, packing too few clothes and becoming dangerously close to frostbite.
In her situation, on lonely roads around the world, far from medical help, telephones, and sometimes even primitive accommodation, she often got into situations which could have caused death to a less determined person. I am tough and I like adventure, but this to me was not adventure.
It was just agony. But what kept her going was her overwhelming love for social interaction, being able to relate to and love and be loved by so many people of so many different cultures. It seems paradoxical that she would travel solo on remote roads but have such a need for social interaction.

But when she traveled alone, strangers became her friends. When she traveled with others, foreigners usually did not approach her. I think much of her success was because she attempted to learn many languages so that she could communicate. Plus there is a worldwide respect for "old" women, especially grandmothers, and most men tended to want to protect her as they would their own mothers. An amazing person, but no matter how well a person prepares for a trip like this, it can only work if you have a remarkable understanding of human nature and a remarkable amount of patience.
This is not a trip for me. My only complaint about the book is that she assumes her readers are as educated as she is and does not include enough maps for the reader to realize where she is traveling.
Of course, I could google it but I wasn't interested in typing in words that I cannot pronounce. Another thing, this book is not chronological. Her first book is.
See a Problem?
This book is written more as a result of questions from readers about how she dealt with specific problems. Each chapter is topical rather than chronological. I think it is a valuable resource for someone who wants an adventure like this. It was published in so it is fairly current. May 02, Oanh rated it really liked it Shelves: It was gratifying to find out that Australians travelling in the outback are very good to other travellers. I'm so parochial, sometimes.
Great anecdotes to spur travel desires. Sep 05, Michelle rated it liked it Shelves:
