A NEW UPDATED VERSION. INCLUDES 8 PAGES OF COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHS AND A NEW AFTERWORD REFLECTING BACK ON THE JOURNEY.

Alastair Humphreys’™ round the world journey of 46,000 miles was an old-fashioned adventure: long, lonely, low-budget and spontaneous.

Cycling across five continents and sailing over the oceans, his ride took four years to complete, on a tiny budget of hoarded student loans. Moods of Future Joys is the story of the first remarkable stage of the expedition. Just two weeks into the ride the September 11th attacks changed everything. All Humphreys’™ plans went out the window and, instead of riding towards Australia, he suddenly found himself pedaling through the Middle East and Africa and on towards Cape Town’¦

Moods of Future Joys recounts an epic journey that succeeded through Humphreys’™ trust in the kindness of strangers, at a time where the interactions of our global community are more confused and troubled than ever.

With a foreword by the explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
