Additional Information

This is the true story of two twenty-year old Australians who travelled for fourteen months on recumbent bicycles from Russia, across Siberia and Mongolia, to Beijing. It is as much a story of perseverance, passion, and belief as it is about the people and remarkable landscapes of Siberia and Mongolia. Tim and Chris are not just fearless adventurers but philosophers on wheels, willing and able to open themselves up to everything from the voice of the Steppes to the Russian villagers and the nomads of the Gobi desert. From this they draw an often funny, moving and inspirational tale of living out a dream. Mixed into this journey is the story of their tumultuous relationship as two opposing wills battle it out in the midst of heat, snow and hunger.

Another book that I found hard to put down. I thought the story having two authors would be disjointed but this was certainly not the case. Both authors proved to be very capable writers and have similar styles. The score of 4 stars and not 5 were because of a failure to explain details that I felt were important and left me wondering how several situations ended or how a particular problem was overcome. Overall though an excellent story that should appeal to travel/adventure buffs.
I enjoyed this story as I have been to some of the places but not by bicycle and and i didn't have the hardship that were described in the story. .Those who like true stories and also like reading about other countries it's an interesting read
Testing the limits of friendship and distance, Tim & Chris journey across the unknown and in the process discover new friends and travel across some of the most inhospitable regions. Loved it.
