Long Way Round Chasing Shadows Across The World, Ewan McGregor & Charley Boorman
3 Ewan McGregor & Charley Boorman Long Way Round Chasing Shadows Across The World
Time Warner 230220 Great Britain 2004 First Edition 0316729698 / 9780316729697 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket It started as a daydream. Poring over a map of the world at home one quiet Saturday afternoon, Ewan McGregor -- acclaimed actor and self-confessed bike nut -- noticed that it was possible to ride all the way round the world, with just one short hop across the Bering Strait from Russia to Alaska. It was a revelation he couldn't get out of his head. So he picked up the phone and called his fellow actor-slash-biker friend Charley Boorman and told him it was time to hit the road.... Long Way Round Beginning in London, Ewan and Charley chased their shadows through Europe, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Russia; across the Pacific to Alaska; then down through Canada all the way to New York. "Long Way Round" is the result of their four-month, 20,000-mile joyride. Featuring original diary entries, travel maps, mileage charts, and dozens of photographs, this is a freewheeling, fully charged, and uproariously entertaining book about two world-famous individuals who chose the road not taken...and made the journey worthwhile 310 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Travel::Adventure; Travel & Places; ISBN: 0316729698. ISBN/EAN: 9780316729697. Inventory No: 230220.

The Wind In My Heels: Travels from the Saddle, Josie Dew
4 Josie Dew The Wind In My Heels: Travels from the Saddle
Warner Books 233452 Great Britain 1993 0751502499 / 9780751502497 Softcover Good Condition As a young girl, Josie Dew developed an overpowering urge to travel. She also fell out of a fast-moving vehicle and, rather inconveniently, developed a lifelong aversion to cars. Along came her first bicycle, and she has never looked back. Four continents, thirty-six countries and eighty thousand miles worth of astounding adventures, eccentric characters, varied cultures and ever-enduring optimism are the result of her travels. From Saharan locust invasions to tree-climbing goats, and a customs official who wouldn't let her leave India because 'You are making me a very fine wife', her encounters are described with honesty, wit and perception. Strange incidents and bizarre circumstances punctuate her journeys: in Nepal she met a team of Frenchmen running from Paris to China, and a cyclist on his way from one Olympic Games to the next. In Udaipur she was greeted by everyone with the refrain 'Hello Mr. Jamie Bond Octopussy filmed here', whilst her view of post-Ceausescu Romania, a nation suffering and starving, affected her both physically and mentally. 368 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel::Adventure; Travel & Places; ISBN: 0751502499. ISBN/EAN: 9780751502497.

The Man Who Cycled The Americas, Mark Beaumont
5 Mark Beaumont The Man Who Cycled The Americas
Corgi Books 233450 Great Britain 2012 055216397X / 9780552163972 Softcover Near Fine Condition In 2008, Mark Beaumont smashed the world record for cycling around the world, by an astonishing 81 days. His race against the clock took him through the toughest terrain and the most demanding of conditions. In 2009, Mark set out on his second ultra-endurance challenge. And this one would involve some very big mountains. The Man Who Cycled the Americas tells the story of a 15,000 mile expedition that once again broke the barriers of human achievement. To pedal the longest mountain range on the planet, solo and unsupported, presented its own unique difficulties. But no man had ever previously summited the continents' two highest peaks, Mt McKinley in Alaska and Aconcagua in Argentina, in the same climbing season, let alone cycling between them. Oh, and Mark had never even been up Ben Nevis before. Full of his trademark charm, warmth and fascination with seeing the world at the pace of a bicycle, Mark Beaumont's second book is a testament to his love of adventure, his joy of taking on tough mental and physical feats, and offers a thrilling trip through the diverse cultures of the Americas. 461 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel::Adventure; Travel & Places; ISBN/EAN: 9780552163972. Inventory No: 233450. Paperback

Picador 230879 Great Britain 1994 0330331612 / 9780330331616 Hardcover Good Condition Beginning in Timaru, reputedly the most activity-challenged place in New Zealand, Lawson travels through Australia and Canada, where he learns to be especially wary of any place named after Queen Victoria or her close relatives. After dropping in on Normal, Illinois and Dead Horse, Alaska - place names in the quiet world are sometimes disarmingly honest - he travels through soothing Switzerland, Milton Keynes, and Belgium, before his journey's end in EuroDisney, Expo '92, and Center Parcs: territories of Somewhere, the new tourist continent where, in a reversal of the usual rules of travel, countries come to you. 291 pages.

The Cyclist Who Went Out In The Cold - Adventures Along The Iron Curtain Trail, Tim Moore
11 Tim Moore The Cyclist Who Went Out In The Cold - Adventures Along The Iron Curtain Trail
Penguin Books 233822 London 2016 0224100203 / 9780224100205 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket 'Bill Bryson on two wheels' Independent Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter's brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his 'so-small bicycle' are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older. 340 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel::Adventure; Travel & Places; ISBN/EAN: 9780224100205. Inventory No: 233822.

Into The Blue - Boldly Going where Captain Cook Has Gone Before, Tony Horwitz
12 Tony Horwitz Into The Blue - Boldly Going where Captain Cook Has Gone Before
Allen & Unwin 232056 Australia 2002 1865088994 / 9781865088990 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Into The Blue offers clear-eyed, vivid, and highly entertaining reassurance that there are still outlandish worlds to be discovered.' Caroline Alexander, author of The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition Captain James Cook's three epic journeys in the eighteenth century were the last great voyages of discovery. His ships sailed some 150 000 miles, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from Tasmania to Oregon, from Easter Island to Siberia. Before Cook set off for the Pacific in 1768, one third of the globe remained blank. By the time of his violent death in Hawaii in 1779, there was little left to discover and the map of the world was substantially complete. Tony Horwitz vividly recounts Cook's voyages and the exotic scenes he encountered: tropical orgies, taboo rituals, human sacrifice, hip-throbbing Tahitian dancers, New Zealand cannibals, Hawaiian surfers, and Australian Aborigines sealed off from the rest of the world for thousands of of years. 480 pages.
