"On many occasions in my life I've arrived at a point where I've thought: is this it? Whenever I reached a goal, it was with the unspoken expectation that when this has been achieved then my life will be great. It didn't happen." At the age of thirty-one Annette Birkmann quits her job as a lawyer in Denmark, sells her belongings and travels to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to fulfill a childhood dream: to ride a motorcycle. The Road to Getting Yourself Out of the Way is about the author's solo motorcycle journey through Latin America and her search for an effortless approach to living. It describes the lessons she learned living her dream and her realization that in every experience there was something familiar: herself.
