Jupiter's Travels von Ted Simon
Jupiter's Travels von Ted Simon
It still boggles the mind to think of the magnitude of what he accomplished, especially considering how far the technology of both bikes and accessories has come since Ted set out on his epic two-wheeled journey around the world. Nowadays you see folks riding big expensive dual-sport twins and triples from the likes of BMW and Triumph, sporting their exteme Kevlar/Gortex riding suits. But IMHO they dont seem to have the time or imagination to ride further than the nearest Mel's Drive-in.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dont leave home without it, 20. Januar 1999

Mine Boy (Aws African Writers) von Peter Abrahams
Without coming across as overly bitter or spiteful, Abrahams gives us an unrivaled peek into the oppressive conditions the black man faces living under a white minority regime. The hopes and aspirations of an entire race seem to rest with our hero- Mine Boy. Little did the old guard of the old White South African establishment realize the role this seemingly harmless little book would play in bringing down their carefully constructed appartheid society.
