Lois Pryce has one big passion in life; motorcycling. This is the story of how she threw in the day job and followed her dream of escaping. But she didn’t escape a little bit. She rode her motorcycle from the northernmost corner of Alaska to the southernmost tip of South America. Alone. Armed only with the Spanish words for 'caution' and 'cheese', Lois was rather under-prepared for multiple bear sightings, bribing her way through borders, spending a night in a Mexican brothel and crashing her bike in the wilds of Patagonia. She most certainly got the adventure she craved. Her hilarious, brilliantly written travelogue will appeal to everyone who's ever dreamt of jacking-it-all-in and running away to see the world.
