When I read this book I thought 55 was ancient and that this was a remarkable woman to set out on such a journey at such a great age Now that I'm not that far off that age myself I realise how patronising my opinion was She is a remarkable woman though and this is a remarkable journey In its telling she intersperses history lessons and this together with her adventures makes for a cracking good read

Orous waiters alternated with great kindness Bike Ride 12000 eBook #9734 from strangers Bike Ride 12000 Miles Around PDF or along the way A Bike Ride is the first in the series of Anne Mustoe's successful and inspiring travelogues. If you want a book that provides a lot of history and insight into cultural differences today this book rates 5 starsHowever if you want details about the realities of travel apart from finding food and accommodation this book is lacking description The author is a bit refined a real book titled How to S t in the Woods is the kind of book that a traveler on a trip like this needs you are traveling by bike in a country whose language you do not know where facilities for locals and certainly for travelers are inadeuate lacking or nonexistent how do you find a toilet She drank copious amounts of caffeinated soft drinks because she was sure the water in them was safe Each drink meant a trip to the toilet but how did she find them In rural areas sometimes it was just a walk outside even worse than some backpacking trails that I have been on where people did not bury their waste The smells flies disease and the risk to her health In some areas it was an open pit with a plank on the roof of the hotel In some hotels she had her own hole in the floor like some restaurants in France that I have used In some cities crowded with millions of people who lived on the street where facilities were not available people simply use the streets What did she doWhat did she do about hand washing when so many things that she needed to touch door knobs her bike after others had handled it etc were filthy and sticky with dirt and germs I have been in places where the accepted protocol for people was to step off the trail in full view of everyone and others were expected to stop on the trail until the person was finishedI have been on Manhattan Island where you could buy an expensive cappuccino everywhere but there were no washrooms unless you wanted a full meal By the end of our visit there I could understand why there was a show on Broadway called Urine CityIn underdeveloped countries aid organizations are working on improving sanitation and decreasing disease spread by open toilets In most places except when she was in Americanized hotels in major cities she needed to leave her room and often the hotel for toilet facilities That is a risk that to me is not necessaryI know that weight is a problem but I would have packed some PeePoo bags for emergencies 'Peepoo' bag offers sanitary human waste disposal for pennies designed for underdeveloped countriesBecause of the difficulty in many countries of traveling alone as a woman where because of her size she could pass as a man I think she should have used a Stand Up to Pee kit which allows her to pee fully clothed and also removes the need for toilet paper female urination devices I have used these in toilets in Mexico which were too unsanitary to sit on The planks that she sat on were not sanitized and were wood which would hold moisture and host bacteriaI don't want an author too delicate to describe these necessitiesAnne Mustoe was on her own; she lived on subsistence food levels but did not adapt to the activity levels of people with minimal caloric and nutrient intake As a result she was susceptible to disease and illness Usually she could survive because every week or two she could find an urban hotel with adeuate meals and build up her body again But there is no point in exposing yourself to deadly germs unnecessarily Anne probably overcame these problems but she did not discuss them in any detail in her book She put her body through a lot of strain and I think it eventually paid the price Anne Mustoe died at the age of 76 of illness in a hospital in Syria on her third around the world trip Some people would say it was tragic But I think she died doing what she loved; she had 22 years of cycling adventures Even though she was away from home she was never alone She built relationships and friendships wherever she went and people wanted her to stay with them to visit with them and loved to buy her meals and try to protect her i don't think she died aloneWould she have died at 76 if she had been at home in London England Probably not from disease but maybe from old age She was an inspiring lady
