Readers will fall for a side of Italy rarely seen with the just-turned-forty Peter Moore rattling around the country on the back of an ageing Vespa scooter — like himself, a little rough around the edges, and a bit slow in the mornings perhaps, but basically still OK.

About the Author:

Peter Moore is an itinerant hobo who is lucky enough to be able to support his insatiable travel habit (he has visited 92 countries so far) through writing. He is the author of The Wrong Way Home, The Full Montezuma, Swahili for the Broken-Hearted (shortlisted for the WHSmith People's Choice Travel Book Award), Vroom with a View and the classic alternative travel guide, No Shitting in the Toilet. When he is not on the road, you'll find Peter in either London or Sydney watching 'Neighbours'. Sad, really.

Review:

"'Its punning title sets the tone for this off-beat travel book...touched by romance and haunted by the glamour of Sophia Loren, it's a larky, laddish tale of roadside picnics, bad behaviour and attempting to re-enact 'Roman Holiday''" * YOU magazine * "'Moore has the parched dry wit, the solid brass cojones of a true traveller and rare eye for the madness of the wider world'" * JOHN BIRMINGHAM * "'Moore is the genuine article, a traveller's traveller...inspirational stuff'" * FHM magazine * "'Haunted by the glamour of Sophia Loren, it's a larky, laddish tale'" -- MAIL ON SUNDAY "'Peter Moore...the Jim Carrey of travel writing, has tapped out another racy travelogue'" -- SUNDAY HERALD

Book Description Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was the late night Tai Bo fitness commercial warning him that life comes to an end after 40 that prompted Peter Moore to chase a boyhood dream. To go to Italy and seek out its celebrated dolce vita from the back of a Vespa. But it couldn t be just any old Vespa. Peter wanted a bike as old as he was and in the same sort of condition: a little rough round the edges, a bit slow in the mornings perhaps, but basically still OK. And it had to have saddle seats. And temperamental electrics. And a little too much chrome. The sort of scooter you d imagine a sharp-suited, Ray Ban-wearing young Marcello Mastroianni riding. Her name was Sophia. From picnicking in the Italian alps and rattling through cobbled hilltop to gate-crashing Frances Mayes s villa and re-enacting Roman Holiday , Vroom with a View is as much a romance as a travel adventure. For not only does Peter win the woman of his dreams, he falls for a side of Italy others rarely see. Along with Sophia, of course. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780553816372
