Overview

My decision to ride my bicycle from my home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States to Israel may appear to be foolhardy—perhaps even insane—to some people. But to me, it was a logical decision based on the following four facts: First, travel is my deepest passion. I simply love to travel to far-flung places, meeting people along the way, listening to their life stories, problems and joys. Second, I love riding a bicycle because nothing gives me more pleasure. I enjoy being outdoors, pedaling down a low-traffic road under a sunny, blue sky—lost in my thoughts and thankful for my good health. Third, I wanted to visit some American friends and relatives whom I had not seen in over one year. Fourth, an Israeli friend invited me to visit him in his country; I had never been to the Holy Land about which I had read so much.
In this book I share with you many true stories about this long bicycle journey: how I prepared for the trip, some of the mechanical problems that I experienced; how I coped with inclement weather; who I met along my route and how they affected, changed and inspired me; a description of some fascinating places I visited; some personal dangers I encountered and how I dealt with them; what I thought and felt during moments of joy and sorrow, and what I learned about life and myself.
Thank you for taking time to read the book. I hope you enjoy it!
