The World Overland
by Dr. Pat Garrod

Two doctors, one motorcycle,
and a remarkable four year journey around the world

Imagine jacking it all in, packing your life into a 41-litre pannier and riding into the sunset. BEARBACK is the story of two GPs who did just that, downing stethoscopes to take off on their motorcycle, The Bear, to see the world. A circumnavigation of epic proportion and entirely unsupported, it was to become one of the longest journeys ever undertaken by a couple on one motorcycle, a journey destined to change their lives forever.

"A remarkable journey. Searching, honest, uplifting."
Sir. Ranulph Fiennes

‘An inspired travelogue, dispelling the myth that remarkable journeys are out of your grasp’

‘Belts along at a cracking pace. Stylish and good quality.'

'I didn't want this enthralling book to end. If you only read one travelogue this year, make it this one.’
Real Travel ‘Book of the Month’

'We've all dreamed about it – quitting the job, packing up the house, and hitting the road for the adventure of a lifetime. Few do it, and even fewer do it as well as Pat Garrod.'
Travel Africa

"A damned good story, and very well told. This wonderful work fits the category of 'page turner' in every way.”
