Описание: Follow Alastair Humphreys on his epic bike trip around the world, as he travels from South Africa to the UK, going through South and North America, Siberia in winter, Japan, and back through China, central Asia, and Europe Alastair Humphreys cycled around the world--a journey of 46,000 miles. This inspiring story traces the second leg of his travels--the length of South and North America, the breadth of Asia, and back across Europe, crossing the mountains and salt-flats of South America, canoeing the Five-Finger Rapids of the Yukon River, and braving a Siberian Winter with only the flimsiest tent to protect him from the elements. Alastair Humphreys left England in August of 2001 to cycle round the world. After more than 1500 days and 46,000 miles, spanning five continents and 60 countries, he arrived home, having spent his student loans (which funded the entire trip). His journey, as well as a quest for adventure, helped to raise the profile of the charity Hope and Homes for Children. When scores of people have visited the Poles and 30,000 is needed to get up Everest, Alastair's expedition was refreshingly original. Alone on the road for four years, in countries few people visit, Alastair survived on a total of just 7,000. This was an expedition of self-belief and optimism rather than satellite hook-ups and lucrative sponsorship.

Описание: Alastair Humphreys took four years to complete his journey around the world on his bicycle - a journey recounted in his books `Moods of Future Joys` and `Thunder and Sunshine`. During his journey he gave talks to audiences around the world and received thousands of e-mails to his website. Besides being asked about Hope and Homes for Children, the charity he promotes, people asked what motivated him to keep going through the low-points on his journey. Here are life affirming quotes and inspiring photographs which show these techniques can be applied to any life-goal.

Adventure is a loose word, a spirit of trying something new, trying something difficult. Going somewhere different, leaving your comfort zone. Above all, adventure is about enthusiasm, ambition, open-mindedness and curiosity.
Adventure is all around us, at all times. Even during hard financial times such as these. Times when getting out into the wild is more enjoyable, invigorating and important than ever. It is in this inspirational spirit that Alastair Humphreys introduces us to the exciting world of Grand Adventures the most amazing, life-changing, career-enhancing, personality-forging, fun adventure of your life. Grand Adventures looks at the scary, enormous obstacles that are stopping us and shows us that there are ways around them.
The practical preparations for a journey are far easier than summoning up the cojones to actually commit, to make the adventure happen, to do something difficult and daunting and daring with our lives. Following on from his popular Microadventures, Al here shines a spotlight on the things that are getting in the way, and crucially, how to get around them, including the financial commitment. He shows us that the most exciting adventures all begin with a single step. Whether you ve always dreamed of cycling to the Sahara, walking across Australia, or rafting the Amazon, the longest journeys really do all begin with a single step.
The book is crammed with hard-won wisdom from people who have actually been there and done it. These are people who have undertaken extraordinary journeys, who have travelled by boat and boot, car and kayak, bicycle and motorbike. People who had one trip of a lifetime and then returned to normal life, or who got bitten so badly by the bug that they devoted their life to the pursuit of adventure. Young people, old people. Men, women. Mates, couples, families. Extraordinary, inspiring people. People like you.
Saving your pennies, overcoming inertia, generating momentum, getting out the front door: if you want it enough, you can do it.
Tiny steps. Grand adventures. Are you in?"
