Overland: From Australia to Switzerland
From the scorching deserts of Western Australia to the harsh vastness of Mongolia, Overland is the true story of a journey from Sydney to Switzerland without flying. It is a funny and honest account of rewarding successes and frustrating failures. It is also a vivid illustration of modern Asia and the people who live there: young Indonesian fishermen, backpackers and a slow train through southern Burma; eating grubs in Thailand and an armed confrontation in Laos; lullabies from middle-aged Chinese businessmen and a cold night on the Great Wall of China; encounters with wolves and reindeer herders in Mongolia; thieves, nomads, Russian scientists; and one ancient, stubborn motorcycle travelling through the world's wild places.
