Touching the World, a blind woman, two wheels and 25,000 miles

I finished last night, with no small emotion, the story of anordinary guy and his partner who made an extra-ordinary journey across the world on a motorcycle. The guy was Bernard Smith, his partner Cathy Burchill; Cathy was blind.>

Beautifully written, impressively honest - I seemed to share their every moment; pain, fear, frustration, humour and sheer joy of the journey and their life. Riding through mountains, deserts, jungles; tussles with border guards, brothel keepers and bureaucracy all brought vividly to life.

Touching The World


This is a seminal book on motorcycle travel; an unforgettable book that charts the complete and irreversible changes in people and their lives.

I urge you to read it. Your life will never be the same again.
