HASH(0xa856b5ac) out of 5 stars Nice easy reading book... May 15 2014
By Giovanni Di Tizio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Narrated in a very lay back style it makes for a pleasant read. Republicans and people with strong right wing political views will not agree with the author's left wing views but don't let this spoil the fun, is a book about travelling after all - not politics!

4 stars for not having any photos of the trip or the bike, I had to dig in the Internet until I found the authors's flicker to be able to see some photos of the trip.

HASH(0xa856b7f8) out of 5 stars Brilliant story, very well told May 15 2011
By Daryl Wilding-McBride - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book. Paddy tells his story with lots of interest and humour. I have read other motorcycling adventure books, and some authors take their quest way too seriously. Paddy combines cultural insight with a self-effacing humour that kept me reading. Can't wait for the next one.

HASH(0xa856b7bc) out of 5 stars The Irishman Who Bitched Through An Entire Trip And Wrote A Book May 23 2013
By KLR Bugeater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not sure why this Irishman went on this trip if he was goig to bitch endlessly about each country he was in. I've never read a more condesending book. What was the purpose of his trip?

"The Hunt..." Is a wonderfully engaging tale of an adventure across and down a continent. The author's humorous commentary along the helps to provide onsite to the thoughts of visitors to a foreign land. We see ourselves as one way - but how do others see us?
This story could easily be enjoyed by those who do not ride motorcycles not have any aspirations of ultra long distance travels.
Now... If only I could get on my motorcycle and try to find my own Puerto Del Faglioli.
HASH(0xa856bb10) out of 5 stars The search must continue! Oct. 15 2013

Good read! This, like Graham Field's "In Search of Greener Grass" is the reality of genuine seat of your pants navigation of the world by motorcycle. The author gets 4 stars to keep him thinking about how to outdo or undo himself with his next book. He even admits to leaving his helmet behind...now that is a real motorcyclist!
