Product description

Sixteen months of diverse adventures and experiences in Spain and Portugal, Africa, Ukraine, USA and Canada.The book begins when Linda has a chance meeting with a fellow musician, Georgia. She is an attractive blonde Canadian who is overcoming her midlife crisis by setting out on a physical and spiritual exploration of Europe and Africa. They begin their shared adventure by leaving for Morocco on Lindas 18 year old BMW motorcycle complete with Georgias Celtic harp and Lindas tin whistle.After many varied experiences, including a hike amongst the Berbers in the high Atlas mountains they part company in the south and Georgia continues her journey solo to face the dangers of the Mauritanian desert.Linda returns briefly to her new home in a smugglers village in Andalucia but is soon on the road again. After a brief visit to her family in England to help with the unexpected death of her mother, she completes a lone motorcycle trip of over 7,000 miles to the Ukraine. During this journey she dodges bandits in Rumania and whistles her way through politically sensitive areas of Moldova and the Crimea.Finally after a frightening experience in her own home, she takes a Greyhound bus in midwinter across the USA to Canada to meet Georgia again 16 months after their parting in Morocco.During their time apart Georgia and Linda kept in touch by post and excepts from Georgias letters are included. These provide not only detailed accounts of life in West Africa but also a continuity and tension to Lindas tale.
