Summary ð Cleopatra's Needle Two Wheels by the Water to Cairo ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ing her to think of her mode of transport as a set of waterwheels Sometimes though she got water than any cyclist would want when freak floods in Europe demolished the roads and bridges on which she was travelling. My 2008 bookcrossing reviewFinished this one today It was pretty interested perhaps not the most engagingly written travel book I ve ever come across but it was all right She was completely mad though one of these old tally ho English women Visiting Cleopatra s Needle in London she suddenly thinks yes what I need to do is cycle from London to the Nile along waterways as much as possible As you do Oh and her bike it had a name Condor Dearie me But oh I am jealous How nice to just tootle off travelling for several months I could uite happily have a life like that if it weren t for annoying things like having to have a job and earn money and all that cobblersGreece didn t come over as such a nice place to visit although the Turks came across as really nice people The images of the rubbish and plastic bag laden rivers in Egypt and the middle east were uite depressing And where were all the camels

Summary ð Cleopatra's Needle Two Wheels by the Water to Cairo ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF It was a blustery April morning on the Thames Embankment in London when Anne Mustoe set out on the most recent of her phenomenal lone cycle rides this time to the original site of Cleopatra's Needle at Heliopolis. The inspiration behind this journey is for Anne Mustoe to travel from the site of Cleopatra s Needle on the Thames in London to the place in Egypt where the original monument came from Heliopolis Once again she would travel alone on her bike and to add to the challenge would follow the course of rivers and seas where possible Her journey will take through four European countries and across the Alps before crossing the Adriatic and heading down towards where Europe meets Aisa Turkey The last part of her ride takes her through what is now a very troubled area of the world as she passes Syria Lebanon and into Egypt This is the first of Anne Mustoe s books that I have read She is a pragmatic no nonsense type of character who does not let most things phase her She suffers from a knee injury is robbed cycles up and over the Alps and runs out of whisky and gets very wet times than she cares to remember She cycles solo most of the time but is joined on occasions by friends As she rolls along the route we are told about the people she meets and learns about the history of places that she passes through The prose is uite matter of fact as Mustoe writes in a straightforward and competent way It is not the best cycling travel book I have read but makes for enjoyable light reading Will be reading some of her others as this was one of three I picked up at the same time 25 Stars
