Kurzbeschreibung

Tim and Cindie Travis shocked their friends and family as they unveiled their well though out plan. They had saved their money, quit their jobs, and sold most of their possessions; all in preparation for a global bicycle touring adventure. With only what they could strap on their bicycles and a meager budget, they set out to see the world. On the first leg of their journey the Travises rode through some of the most dangerous places in Mexico and Central America.

This title presents an inspiring and daring true adventure. Dare to live a dream! Tim and Cindie Travis accomplish the unthinkable, in an unprecedented worldwide cycling adventure. Their clever story explores the depths of humanity, as they expose themselves to life's perils on roads less travelled. This story is written as it happens, on the road. Digital technology and dot com know-how are in harmony with minimalist living. The result is salt-of-the-earth drama related on the fly through an internet journal, culminating in a series of captivating true stories. There is a winning combination of integrity and know-how, with a relaxing informal prose, become informative non-fiction that reads like a novel.This first book progresses from the shedding of a traditional lifestyle to discoveries made on their bicycle journey from Arizona, USA to Panama City, Panama. On bicycle, the Travis' are exposed to the ground level of society, an experience few outsiders will ever know.

Along the way, the Travis' witness a religious pilgrimage in Chalma, Mexico, visited ancient Aztec and Mayan ruins, were attacked by an airplane spraying pesticides in Guatemala and saw alligators, scarlet Macaws and three-toed sloths in the jungles and cloud forests of Costa Rica.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amerikaner auf großer Radtour 7. März 2009
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch ist für Kulturinteressierte sehr zu empfehlen und zwar aus mehreren Gründen: 1. Culture clash! Amerikaner erfahren, wie die Welt "unter ihnen" wirklich ausschaut. Sie werden konfrontiert mit Armut und fast uneingeschränkter Hilfsbereitschaft und Freundlichkeit und dass man auch andere Sprachen, Gesten und Weltanschauungen lernen muss. Manchmal ist Travis herrlich naiv!
2. Es ist eine Reisebeschreibung, die sehr ausführlich auf die einzelnen Landstriche und die kulturellen Verschiedenheiten eingeht, was man bei manchen Weltumradelungsbüchern in dieser Detailgenauigkeit vermisst.
3. Das erste Kapitel, die genaue Planung und Vorbereitung auf die Reise ist auch sehr lieb geschrieben. Man merkt: Hobbyradler gehen auf große Tour (Sie nehmen auch Campingsessel mit!!!).
Es ist auch herrlich erfrischend, wenn Travis auf seine Fehler, die er immer wieder macht, ganz ausführlich eingeht. Man kann wunderbar mitleiden!
Eine sehr realistische Beschreibung und wunderbar naiv!

1.0 von 5 Sternen It's just not that interesting..... 3. Juni 2010
Von Nigel Pickard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
You would think given the subject matter this would be a fascinating travel tale; let's just say it's miles from "Miles From Nowhere". The writing style is brusque, but perhaps most distressingly, lacks soul and the author's expression of emotion.

While I freely acknowledge I'm no author myself and have tremendous respect for those who do actually write a book, this is a commercial venture so I do want to review it as honestly as possible. I did manage to get through it, but I was left feeling very dissatisfied and as though no connection was made with the author as a person. I wanted to know the answers to questions -how did they feel? What were the doubts? How did they get on with each other? How was their interaction with the people around them? All these questions were never raised, never mind being answered. What did come from the book was a never ending series of generic descriptions of "We got up. We cycled through [insert country or region]. We ate [insert food]. We made camp at [insert camping area]."

I'm extremely surprised and puzzled by how many glowing reviews this book received as I gave this book to my neighbor and a friend -both of whom enjoy travel books immensely and without letting them know what I thought about it - and they echoed almost identical criticisms. If you can peek inside the book to see how it's written, do so. It may save you some money.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Read! 23. März 2007
Von James Conboy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As a 59 year old cyclist whose bike tours are limited to the States I found this book to be very good. It took me places I will never go myself with a narrative style that made me feel as though I was with Tim and Cindie Travis. I greatly admire these two, the places they pass through in Mexico, and Central America often put them at risk but the rewards those places provided in terms of the scenery and people they met makes it all worthwhile for them and for their readers.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Great bicycle touring books 28. Oktober 2007
Von Steve R Marks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have to agree with other writers who have complained about the quality of the writing. I enjoyed reading it because the subject interests me. If you want to read some excellent books about bicycle touring in other countries try the following: "Spokesongs" by Willie Weir, "The Masked Rider" by Neil Peart, "Metal Cowboy" by Joe Kurmaskie, Odysseus' Last Stand" by Dave Sumboulis, or the classic "Miles from Nowhere" by Barbara Savage. Having commented on the less than stellar writing of this book however I would recommend going to their website where there is a wealth of information about the equipment they have used.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read worth experiencing 29. Mai 2005
Von Charles DiBella - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Tim Travis's book is an exceptional read. You'll be able to travel along with Tim and his wife Cindy down fabulous roads seldom explored and learn the ins and outs of how to get around in a world sometimes friendly, sometimes hostile. You receive tips not found in bestseller tour guides, and you'll find out where to go and where not. You'll learn to save money on everything from hotel rooms to local food on the steet, and you'll get the feel of what it's like to travel in the rough, on a narrow budget, along with high tech tools, combining the internet, laptop, and digital photography. Tim and Cindy have a detailed website you won't want to miss, chock full of even more tips, tricks, links, and photographs. They continue to make regular entries to journals, keeping you posted on where they are, and answering questions from a huge international audience. This is an 8 year trip around the world, and this book is the first of a long and exciting series. If you're planning to tour professionally anywhere, alone or with a friend, need the motivation to start, or just want to dream about high adventure, this is the book for you. You'll not only have the time of your life, but you'll make yourself two great new friends with Tim and Cindie. Packed with photographs, this book is a best buy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A travelogue of two people who dared to live their dream 8. Januar 2005
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Road That Has No End is an amazing travelogue of two people who dared to live their dream, setting aside their ordinary lives to embark on a worldwide cycling adventure. Learning to live frugally on the road while maintaining an internet journal, they observed a religious pilgrimmage in Mexico, ancient Aztec and Mayan ruins, the cloud forests of Costa Rica, survived the attack of a pesticide-spraying airplane in Guatemala and much more. Over 150 black-and-white photographs illustrate this enchanting journey past cultural differences, environmental hardship. Both travelers had to learn how to bribe border guards and avoid thieves, yet the majority of their experience with various cultures exposed misconceptions concerning daily life and motivations south of America's borders. A journey that was neither as dangerous as some fearmongers would claim nor as safe as the overly idealistic would lead one to believe, The Road That Has No End is a unique personal testimony especially recommended for armchair travelers or anyone considering an extended international bicycle tour of their own.
