Samenvatting

Unafraid of a challenge, Lois Pryce began the kind of adventure most of us could only ever dream of. She put on her sparkly crash helmet, armed herself with maps and a baffling array of visas, and got on her bike. Destination: Cape Town - and the small matter of tackling the Sahara, war-torn Angola and the Congo Basin along the way - this feisty independent woman's grand trek through the Dark Continent of Africa is the definitive motorcycling adventure. Colourful and hilarious, Red Tape and White Knuckles is an action-packed tale about following your dreams that will have you packing your bags and jetting off into the sunset on your own adventure before you know it.

Recensie(s)

Lois Pryce knows what it takes to be a fun, fearless female. She rode solo from London to Cape Town, with the barest of essentials Cosmopolitan A natural storyteller, she brings the African landscape to life in this funny, fast-paced travelogue Sainsbury's Magazine A gutsy tale of one woman and her bike, told with vigour and honesty...she manages to make the journey an enjoyable experience and a solid read. There are the usual chaotic scenes of jumble in border towns, and heart-warming tales of help en route. But there are also some genuinely chilling episodes and these make the book, and perhaps the journey, all too authentic Irish Times Lois Pryce defied convention when she decided to travel from London to Cape Town by motorcycle. Red Tape and White Knuckles reads like a non-fiction chick-lit adventure as the pasty skinned, heatstroke prone Pryce deals with cultural differences, Africa's troublesome roads and the company of various travellers she meets along the way Metro I really enjoyed this book...every chapter is filled with adventure and anecdotes about the people and situations she encounters along the way. It's a mix of hair-raising incidents, humorous episodes and serious insight into the history and cultural differences she experiences across the African continent. A travelogue with a difference, this would be a great read for the armchair adventurer, someone planning an African expedition or anyone who simply enjoys a good story! Candis
