One couple’s two-wheeled adventure around the Middle Kingdom
Come to the Bookworm this Friday, April 20th to hear Buck and Amy talk about their Guinness World Record breaking trip and share some excerpts from the book and coffee table book they wrote about their experiences.
In 2013, Buck Perley and Amy Mathieson decided to quit their jobs in Beijing and set out on the adventure of a lifetime, a 34,000km, 146 day motorcycle trip through 33 of China’s provinces. The couple would experience so much of what this incredible country has to offer, not just iconic sights such as the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, the largest stone Buddha in the world at Leshan, or Mount Everest Base Camp in Tibet, but also challenges like flooding on the grass plains of Inner Mongolia or chance encounters at a funeral feast in Ningxia.
