Questions about this product?

Join the adventure as 33-year-old Rene Cormier politely removes himself from the working world that surrounds him and cashes in what few possessions he has to finance a three-year-long motorcycle journey around the world. Never one to let excessive planning get in the way of a good ride, Rene runs out of money half way through the tour and ultimately takes five years to cover his 41-country, 154,000-kilometre (95,000 mile) route. Written with equal measure of cultural insight and travel logistics, this light travelogue brings you alongside Rene as he pulls off the ride of a lifetime, doing it the old-fashioned way; no sponsors, no support vehicles, and no idea about what he is going to learn along the way.

This is one of the better adventure motorcycle travel books that I've read recently. It is fun to read along as Rene learns lessons from his journey. In a lot of other books and DVD's the people act like they already knew everything, but Rene isn't afraid to laugh at himself for learning things the hard way. I wish it had more photography, but if you read along, you'll understand why.

Marvelous book. I just give a try to read the book and very fortunate to discover a lot from it. From the very first page until end cover, Rene portrayed the benefit of being honest and brave through out his journey. Wish him to come to MALAYSIA & South East Asia in the future. From MALAYSIA with LOVE
