The many months of NO posts on our website have not meant we are idle, In fact, I have been busy (thousands of hours’ worth) writing a book of our trip. At long last, it is complete, and has been published as an e-book though Amazon.com, which can be read on most e-readers, including Kindle devices, Galaxy and IPad tablets, and most smart phones. If you don’t have an amazon account, you can easily create one, and preview the book online and then purchase it.
Because it is a travel book, I have included a few hundred photos, with captions. The Kindle which displays in black and white still comes out pretty well, and of course the devices which display in colour come out very well. One could never have that number of photos in a printed version, and still keep the cost down, but in time, we may look into the printed option with a reduced number of photos.
I have used quite a bit of the content from the blog, that Jules wrote, and chose most of the photos that Shan had selected for the blog, so, a big thank you goes to them for all the work that they did while we were travelling. Amazingly, we still get many hits on the blog, from ALL over the world, so, in many ways, although our trip is history (not quite ancient yet), it has an appeal to a wide range of people, not just motorcyclists. We have always wanted to inspire people to dream their dreams, get out of their comfort zone, and realize that ordinary people can do amazing things.
In keeping with our commitment to support the Children’s Hospital Trust, I will be donating 10% of the proceeds to them. The book is available in most countries. I would really appreciate you spreading the word about the book to others, so they can enjoy it, and that the children of Africa can benefit.
As a point of interest, I have published the same book content but under two different titles-the one a rather obvious motorcycle book, and the other, holding a bit of mystique. Whichever one you upload, the content is exactly the same.
