“The overbearing odor of diesel fuel that permeated the cabin of the aged Toyota Corolla we had just push-started made us reach for the window cranks, but there weren’t any. The driver was shouting something in Urdu over his mobile phone while the passenger next to him was hanging his head out of the window, shouting into the darkness at the traffic jungle that blocked our path. The muzzles of the AK-47s belonging to these two policemen riding in the front seat pointed gently in our direction. A bit worrying at first, but I was sure they had set them to the ‘safety’ position. Positive. The image of the gun barrels, the opera in Urdu going on in the front seat and the lingering scent of diesel conspired to lull me into a daze and I recounted the strange events of the past few days that led us to this bizarre police escort to a restaurant in the heart of Pakistan. ”
‘The Places In Between’ tells the story of a couple's motorcycle trip around the world that is at once dangerous and enlightening, fiery and romantic. But more than anything, it is a lesson in the world that brings the reader along for the ride through illustrative, up to the minute writing and a beautiful collection of photographs that capture the colorful people they meet along their route.

Brings me back...
Thanks for bringing me back to my own personal odyssey. Let’s do it again some time.
Greetings to the riders for sharing this journey; an experience most would only dream to accomplish. Thanks for allowing me to tag along.
Loved this book! The imagery was simply amazing. Riding the subway to work picturing myself on the back of that very BMW. An outstanding journey.
