Longtime friends and bike enthusiasts McGregor and Boorman wowed international audiences with their first major motorcycle journey that spanned several continents, captured in the highly successful book and television show LONG WAY ROUND. Now they are back, with the fascinating account of their second, equally ambitious journey in LONG WAY DOWN. From the northernmost tip of Scotland, across Europe and down through Africa ending in Cape Town, this is the breathtaking account of the authors' three month journey across two continents, over difficult terrain and in unpredictable conditions. Their route covers Britian, Italy, Switzerland, Tunisia, the Sudan, Rwanda, Botswana, and Namibia, among other countries; and they stop in cities and villages along the way to experience the European and African cultures firsthand. Featuring original diary entries, travel maps, mileage charts, and dozens of color photographs, this is a fully-charged and wildly entertaining book from two world-famous actors who share a love of the open road.
