What did you like most about Into Africa?

I listened to this book whilst on my own motorcycle adventure, riding across Canada on dirt roads. I was constantly nodding in agreement with the experiences Sam was writing about.

What does Sam Manicom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Reading a book can be rather abstract, you never know whether the author is stretching the truth. By reading the book himself, feel a real connection to his experiences on the road.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Sam talks about having an guardian angel watching over him and how even some of the worst events resulted in unexpected experiences. This resonated very strong with my own experiences on the road.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this as essential material for anyone considering an adventure... or any armchair adventurers that wants to get a real feel of life on the road.
