The Moment Collectors: Twenty Travellers' Tales from Around the World



In a celebration of motorcycle overlanding, twenty authors share the surprises and all the natural drama of travel; the fun, the laughter, the high points and the lows, the challenges and the outcomes. Woven into these tales you'll discover a moment from each author where the reason they are out there living their dreams, suddenly and wonderfully comes to life. Travel with them to the big sky plains of Mongolia, African Deserts, the majesty of the Pamir Highway, the far reaches of Alaska, the breath-taking drama of Andean backroads and the rugged Trans-Labrador Highway. Delve into the intriguing world of the Sinai, meet surfers in Mexico and be hosted by Iron Angels in Russia. Meet Slavic the jaw-dropping Polish streaker, hike a turquoise glacier in Argentina, explore a desert forest, stay in a love motel, ride the top of the world with Golden Eagles, and much more. Along with 80+ illustrations (line drawings and black & white watercolour paintings), and 20 colour photographs, The Moment Collectors vividly brings to life the magic of long distance motorcycle travel. This anthology of international travel retains the clear identity of each contributor. From seven countries, be they published authors of books, magazine articles, blogs, or first-time writers, their styles, spelling, slang and the quirks of their nationalities are alive within the chapters. Several ride two up, some ride in pairs and there are solo riders too. Some are hugely experienced globe-riders, and others are relatively new to wandering and exploring on two wheels. This is how things are on the open road-the full mix. "Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."-Maya Angelou
