A wonderful read. It's my bedtime read to start my dreams off right. However, as a 'university' I was hoping for more specific information on how to prepare for border crossings and more detail on how and what resources are available in each country he passed through. Endnotes and references at the end of each chapter and at the back would be a worthwhile revision.

This is a great book if you are into traveling to places where the normal tourist don't go. If you are into doing that on a motorcycle even better. Rene has a great style of writing so much so the envelopes you and makes you feel you are right along side with him.
I enjoyed that provided the reader with an honest account of what happened, even when he had set backs. This is a great read.

Five stars for a different approach, this is not a how to manual, its not the usual obsessive account of "look at me, I'm so proud of what I've done". It tells a good story in a beautiful format picture book, lots of personal insight into how it affected his relationships. Most like about it is.. why we travel. Travel is to understand different peoples, not change them. It is also not a contest to reach a certain amount of kilometers.

Well-written ode to a journey enjoyed. Rene lets us share his journey while we also get to know a little about him, as well. Tells of some of the varying characters one meets along the road, and the adventures experienced. A good read, with some helpful insights to those who are planning to follow in his motorcycle tracks.
