Poring over a map of the world at home one quiet Saturday afternoon, Ewan McGregor actor and self-confessed bike nut noticed that it was possible to ride all the way round the world. So he picked up the phone and called Charley Boorman, his best friend, fellow actor and bike enthusiast. Charley, he said. I think you ought to come over for dinner. Riding 20,000 miles across increasingly tough terrain, Ewan and Charley chased their shadows through Europe, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, across the Pacific to Alaska, then down through Canada and America. Long Way Round is the result of their adventures a fascinating, frank and highly entertaining travel book about two friends riding round the world together and, against all the odds, realising their dream.
