With their children grown and flown, Mike and Jo Hannan discover that it's never too late to live the dream and embark on an epic tour of Europe and beyond on a 1150cc BMW motorbike called 'Elephant'. With a limited budget, and all the essentials packed, they hit the road. Journeying through sunshine and rain, over good roads and bad, they explore France, Spain, North Africa, Russia and other former Soviet countries, Mongolia and Korea, taking in all kinds of sights and meeting all kinds of people. Along the way they also learn the difference between a tourist and a voyageur, and come to understand the deep universal significance of their journey. This book is a record of that journey, and your ticket to ride with the Hannans for the adventure, sharing the observations and reflections, tasting the fine local food and drink (and a few dishes that were not so fine!), and experiencing all the delightful surprises and unforeseen obstacles such as mechanical faults, visa problems, and very nasty weather!
