Five StarsBy Gary T. Kleemannidiosyncratic, entertaining and enlightening.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Worth the read.By Jeff CommissarisOften times funny, while incorporating both on-the-road memoir style travel adventures with the history of Greece. The author has a sense of humor and puts his wisdom into the writing. One of the better bicycle travel books I've read on a specific country.
Definitely worth the read and looking forward to reading the author's other books.4 of 4 people found the following review helpful. Highly agreeableBy Joel Jacobsen"Agreeable" is the word the author's son uses to describe the book in the foreword, and it does well. Enfield is amusing, insightful, sympathetic -- a pleasure to be around. He seems to be without the least hint of shyness or self-consciousness, and equally without the least hint of brashness, a combination that Americans find almost impossible to achieve. This is an account of two bicycle trips through Greece, taken in his mid or late 60s, and both are described in loving detail. He meets all sorts of people and condescends to none of them, and even tosses in some rather moving history. The book is mostly a travelogue with some elements of guide book intermixed. Two enchanting explorations of Greece by bicycle "The overall effect is charming . . . it will give you a bit of knowledge and a warm glow." Wanderlust magazine
