Sarah sets off to test her mettle with three months of solo travel in Africa, but her plan is derailed when she meets Heath, a traveler on a motorcycle. She hops on the back to explore Africa in a new way, and together the friends battle malaria, snakes, and homicidal bus drivers. But the true adventure begins when Sarah leaves the comfort of Heath's friendship to venture out on her own.
Sarah Alitis is disenchanted with her stationary existence in Colorado. Longing to hit the road and explore her own limits, she alienates her loved ones by choosing to travel solo in East Africa for three months. But her plans to go it alone are derailed in Nairobi when she meets Heath, a South African traveler on a motorcycle. Forming an instant friendship, the two set off together on the bike to journey through the mountains, forests, savannas and canyons of Africa. Along the way they encounter a wide range of food, wildlife, road conditions, and people - some dangerous, some hilarious, all interesting.
But two months into the trip, Sarah is still feeling lost and unfulfilled, so she makes the leap to leave Heath's easy company and test her mettle on her own. It doesn't take long for her solo misadventures to come to a head, and she gets what she was looking for: an opportunity to push her limits.

Great book, vivid and captivating, at times i found myself lost in Africa with the writer, only to be snapped back to reality but the sounds of home.
