The mere thought of traversing any part of the African continent in a Land Rover with only two other companions is a daunting proposition... that is until the Indiana Jones element within Penny Lees kicked in one day and announced that she was to embark on the adventure of a lifetime.

Notwithstanding the various irritations whilst travelling through rural France, the Pyrenees and southern Europe, these paled into insignificance when faced with the climatic and cultural hurdles encountered in Africa.

Everything has its price they say... price is dependent on how much money you have... especially when out of food in the middle of the Sahara. From the author's diary entries, this enthralling epic, plotting Penny Lees' journey, offers the reader a clear picture of the problems that can be encountered. Nevertheless, complimenting this are the colourful and variegated landscapes along with equally colourful and different ethnic people.

Penny Lees

Penny Lees has always loved travelling and at the age of eighteen spent a year working in France. After two years in London she set off on the epic African journey this book is based upon. Following some time in Oxford, the author moved to take up a job in Wellington, New Zealand. When Penny decided to return home, she spent a month travelling back through S.E. Asia, India and Nepal. The author has since lived and worked in London. She gained a degree in English at Birkbeck College and continues to write and travel, the latter in a less rigorous fashion!
