Dervla Murphy/bicycle/Afghanistan

4 years agoopen0

Dervla Murphy is an Irish woman who travelled to India by bike – in the 1960ies!!! She got to know coutries like Afghanistan (or Pakistan) before the civil war and crossed the Soviet countries during the cold war – on a bike called “Rozinante” which says everything about its comfort. I just read “Full Tilt” by Murphy, but it let me astonished by her dry sense of humour, slightly ironic and changed my idea of Afghanistan completely. Afterwards she travelled by bike parts of Africa and Russia – in her 80ies! Please, please make an interview with her!!!! And hurry, we should all know her!

Big hugs, Olivia
