I read this book last year when it first came out and have intended to review it ever since. As a fellow adventure motorcyclist, I found much of Birkmann's tale resonated with me very strongly. The courage she exhibited to tear apart her existing life and leap into the unknown is inspiring, as is the self-awareness and openness to self-discovery on display in this book.
That leap into the unknown is the foundation of this book, really. The author deftly uses the act of solo motorcycle travel as a metaphor for the inner journey she (somewhat unwittingly) embarked on by leaving Denmark for Argentina in the first place, and then by following her passion where it led her - both literally on her BMW and figuratively on her path of transformation in the process.
If you're interested in motorcycles, travel, personal growth in the face of challenges internal and external, this book is well worth a look.
