Publisher Description

"Self-awareness is where the real zen of motorcycle riding occurs."

Sherrie and Patrick were no strangers to overland motorcycle travel. They met in South Korea during Patrick's first trip around the world on his motorcycle. After joining him in Argentina to ride pillion Sherrie was hooked – both on Patrick and motorcycle travel. And so a dream was born – she too would get her motorcycle license and the next trip would have them each riding their own bike. She packed up and moved to Germany and they began to plan and plot. Only when it became apparent that saving for an around the world trip would take longer than either were willing to wait, they switched plans and decided to ride from Germany to Turkey and back via the Balkans.

This is the story of their 3 month trip which included Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey. Greece, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia. From the majesty of Mt. Nemrut to the amazing and open people they met along the way, Sherrie writes candidly about the ups, downs and pure bliss that is motorcycle travel. Food, mountain top crashes, and horny deer are all just part of this trip.

Her first trip riding solo, it is an intimate account of why someone with a week old motorcycle license would jump on their bike and ride away. (Hint: It helps if staying means your homeless.)

The Happiness Project meets The Motorcycle Diaries, the book is for anyone who dreams of packing it in and riding off into the sunset - or for anyone who just likes to read about it.them dreaming about the open road. And so they make a compromise, 3 months rather than a year. A summer of adventure riding from Germany to Turkey via Romania and Bulgaria, and back via Greece and the Balkans.

Note from the publisher: Unleash Your Motorcycle Adventure Series is written by an adult and is intended for adults and therefore on occasion (and sometimes even more often than that) adult language is used. If you have a strong aversion to the use of the F-bomb, particularly when the person slinging that “type of language” is the female of the duo, you may find your enjoyment of the book somewhat diminished on occasion. Unleash Your Adventure has made an effort to remove unnecessarily foul language from the book. There are points though where we feel the integrity of the scene and Sherrie’s general personality requires the occasional swear word. Otherwise, if you ever meet her in real life, say at a Horizon’s Unlimited meeting or in some random port, you (hopefully) will not be as horrified and can not say we did not warn you.
