Attack of the Green Eyed Monster

Just finished reading Lois on the Loose, about Lois Pryce and her trip down the Americas. She’s a great writer in the Ted Simon mould, writing about the people and places that make up her journey as much as the miles – and doesn’t mind telling stories against herself.

Love this opening:-

“Rolling off a boat on a motorcycle into a foreign land is one of the most exciting experiences I know. No matter where it is in the world: freewheeling down the ramp, the metallic clank that marks your arrival, and your first glimpse of a strange land. Everything looks different, sounds different, even smells different – you feel different.”

Makes me want to get the tie-down straps out and head off to Dover….
