Great touring book

Has anyone read Cycling Home From Siberia - about an English guy who cycled through places like Papua New Guinea, Tibet and Afghanistan to get back to his home in London

Great review for it from the Guardian - they called it a two-wheeled classic

I see there is actually a Kindle version so I may get it. No comments about the Kindle . I have had two back surgeries and being able to carry a few books anywhere I want without all that extra weight has been great for me.

Yes. I have read it. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Easy to read, interesting, informative and at times quite mind-boggling- particularly the cycling and camping in the Siberian winter!
