Full Tilt Summary

Full Tilt: Dunkirk to Delhi by Bicycle by Dervla Murphy

Fulfilling a childhood dream, Dervla Murphy embarked in 1963 on an epic journey from Dunkirk to Delhi with her trusty bicycle, Roz. She began her trek during the worst winter in living memory, and even when the weather improved there were enough difficulties and dangers to satisfy the most intrepid of travellers. Her resourcefulness, however, matched up to her unexpected encounters, and she turned a blind eye to personal danger and discomfort. Yet, everywhere she ventured, she was met with kindness and hospitality, which is the focus of this travel diary.
