Summary
Plenty of retirees take a holiday. When Brian Rix retired after 36 years as a policeman in Victoria rather than hitching up the caravan, he put his wife, journalist Shirley Hardy-Rix, on the back of his motorcycle and headed off for a ride.For the next 16 months Brian and Shirley rode more than 83,000 kilometres through 32 countries on five continents with side trips to Antarctica and Galapagos Islands.They rode from the bottom of South America to the very top of North America. They rode over the Andes, sometimes more than 5,000 metres high. They rode through deserts, the tropics and up to Alaska. They had a catastrophic breakdown in the heart of bear country and suffered altitude sickness.The motorcycle didn't make it to Antarctica but they did—taking them from Antarctica Circle to the Arctic Circle...and then a bit more.Beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout, Circle to Circle is an engaging account of the travels of an adventurous couple. It will entertain you in your armchair, or it may even inspire you to get up and go!Praise for Brian & Shirley's previous book, Two for the Road:"Makes you want to get up and go." —Australian Women's Weekly"Few books are as inspirational as that just written by Melbourne journalist Shirley Hardy-Rix and her policeman husband Brian Rix." —Herald Sun"For bikers and those with itchy feet." —Sunday Age"The inspiring story of two middle-aged adventurers." —Manly Daily"A great read for anyone with a yearning for the open road and exotic climes." —West Australian"A must-read for adventurous hearts." —Canberra Times"For anyone who's ever dreamed of escaping and experiencing the romance of the open road." —Inverell Times"This book might tip undecided travellers over the edge—no bad thing." —Two Wheels
