Realised after putting this book down as my choice that seeing as these threads are in Adult Fiction, I may have made a slight error (as it is a travel book). But I have decided to stick with it anyway smile.

It is by Dervla Murphy, an Irish writer. She has travelled around many parts of the world, often by bike (the first book by her I read, Full Tilt, tells of her journey from Dunkirk to Delhi on a bike) but this journey was mainly on foot.

In it, she, and her daughter Rachel, who was six at the time travelled to Baltistan, or Little Tibet. I find her writing descriptive and also leaves me wanting to know more about the places she explores (often places I would never be likely to visit).

I will be interested to see what everyone else thinks smile.
