5.0 von 5 Sternen Amerikaner auf großer Radtour 7. März 2009
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter 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.

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!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Reads like a journal, not a travel memoir 15. März 2010
Von JM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I found this book to be easy to read but simplistic and lacking in much descriptive detail. It reads more like a cleaned up travel journal listing itineraries and non-integrated historical tidbits than a travel memoir. It's almost as if the author couldn't decide on the format and focus for the book. Is it a how-to (leave your job and travel), travel journal (we did this), or guidebook (Palenque is...).

The combination of naiveté (mentioned by another reviewer) and fear is something that a lot of travelers must feel but reading about it here made more more inclined to dislike the author rather than admire him. He never seemed to learn from his encounters. That said, he seemed to have more then the usual amount of run-ins with potential bandits.

While I would like to travel (by bike) to these places myself someday, this book doesn't really provide the inspiration for that particular dream.

Writing travel memoirs seems like a very difficult task to take on and it is admirable that the author published his journey - that in itself is an accomplishment - but it is unfortunate that it is no more than a glorified travel journal.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A super fast and easy read 2. Mai 2005
Von P. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is a great read for anyone concidering a tour in Latin America. The book goes a long way toward dispelling many myths about Latin America. Tim and Cindie went into Mexico on bicycles with little to no ability to speak Spanish and yet got along with the people there very well. The portion of their trip depicted in this book was a very positive cultural exchange. The book really gives the reader the feeling of "I can do this." In support of their book and travels the author maintains an interesting web site and is very accessable to readers that have questions. If you read the book you will find yourself daydreaming about "your" adventure and anxiously waiting for Tim and Cindie's next book.
