Free Country: A penniless adventure the length of Britain
A rather different book this month, but one that I could not put down and devoured in a few days. It’s a story of two young guys from Northampton who decide to travel the length of Great Britain to prove that there are more good people in the UK than bad.
This is a true story with a simple plan. George and Ben have just three weeks to cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats. There is one small problem though, they have no bikes, no clothes, no food or money. Setting off in a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts they attempt to rely on the generosity of the
British public for everything from food to accommodation, clothes to shoes and of course bikes and beer!
This book will restore your faith in humanity and leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling. It certainly inspired me to take an adventure of my own! – Julia
