Journal Entry 1 by foxed from Bedford, Bedfordshire United Kingdom on Friday, June 26, 2009

8 out of 10

Inspiring round-the-world bike ride from a spirited former headmistress, at 54 one of the Mary Cooper generation (my magnificent geography lecturer).

Mustoe sees with the eyes of a classicist, and relishes the opportunities for human connection which you lose with more impersonal forms of transport. Its a shame that the politics of 1987 prevented her crossing more of the Middle East
