Kurzbeschreibung

* A well-loved, classic tale of adventure
* Read this and you'll find yourself recommending it to friends again and again

This is the story of Barbara and Larry Savage's sometimes dangerous, often zany, but ultimately rewarding 23,000 miles global bicycle odyssey, which took them through 25 countries in two years. Miles From Nowhere is an adventure not to be missed!

Along the way, these near-neophyte cyclists encountered warm-hearted strangers eager to share food and shelter, bicycle-hating drivers who shoved them off the road, various wild animals (including a roof ape and an attack camel), sacred cows, rock-throwing Egyptians, overprotective Thai policeman, motherly New Zealanders, meteorological disasters, bodily indignities, and great personal joys. The stress of traveling together constantly for two years tested and ultimately strengthened the young couple's relationship.

As their trip ends you'll find yourself yearning for Barbara and Larry to mount back up and keep pedaling. It's a story that makes you feel like you've grown right along with the author.

Synopsis

The author describes her experiences as she and her husband traveled on bicycles 23,000 miles through twenty-five countries.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Total inspiration! 14. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
If you ever dreamed about doing something really adventurous at least once in your life, you must read this book! There's no sugarcoating here - Barbara writes about the worst as well as the best of times, and it left me feeling that I will have never really lived until I do something like this myself. I wonder what they were thinking as they first rode out of Los Angeles, having never attempted anything remotely similar to this, and without even having really trained for it! I loved the part where they excitedly tried to strike up a conversation with the american tourists from the tour bus. Hysterical! And what a contrast of experiences between Barbara and Larry, and the typical "ugly americans" on the typical vacation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen felt like i was there 22. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Undertaking a trip like this requires a great amount of temerity. What I especially like about this book is her attention to details that could easily have omitted or trivialized. If you've done any sort of tour like this, you can appreciate her annoyance at Chris "The Sponge" interrupting a romantic anniversary date or having a heated argument with her spouse during an especially excruciating ride across the midwest (howling headwinds all the way).
She writes about her experiences of arriving in Egypt or cowering in a road side "potty," sheltered from the rain, well enough to make you feel like you've been there. Even if you aren't able to take a trip like this, you can still experience it from the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent reading for bikers and adventurers 15. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I gather this book has become a classic for touring bicyclists. The book was very exciting to read, and I felt as if I was there with Barbara and Larry experiencing their highs and lows. These were real people living a real adventure. In this day of Hollywood personalities, TV lala-land, phony celebrities, flaky sporting events -- Barbara and Larry showed what common, unknown, down-to-earth REAL people can accomplish with average physical strengths, but a determination that celebrates the human spirit. I only wish there were a few more pictures in the book of their travels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wake-up call from your daily routine... 20. Oktober 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Having failed to read of Barbara's tragic death until finished with the book, I felt as though I'd lost a friend at the story's end. The spirit with which Barbara and Larry embraced life on their journey makes me look at my world much more thankfully for its simple pleasures. Enduring physical and mental hardships as well as relishing the pleasures of creation and human kindness, Barbara Savage sparked in me a yearning to break free of my daily routine and reach out to others however I can. Perhaps one day our family will create a cycling adventure of our own!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Travelogues rarely get as good as this..... 23. August 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
Admittedly the writers were not pros at literature composition but so what? What I wanted to read was a down to earth honest story and I got it. Barbara was very good at putting you right there with herself and Larry. I have bought several copies of this book and have given them to everyone that ponders a long trip. Always keep a copy because reading it once is NEVER enough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'm one of the "characters" in the book . . . 9. Mai 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
It was tough for me to read Barb's book. She was a good friend of mine and I learned a lot from Larry and Barb. But, reading her book was like reading out of my own journal. The experience of riding around the world is overwhelming; Barb let's you know some of what to expect.
By the way, Larry is doing just fine, living life to the fullest. (Is there any other way?)
