Eastern horizons : hitchhiking the Silk Road
Eastern horizons : hitchhiking the Silk Road
Wood, Levison, 1982-2018
Books, Manuscripts
Levison Wood was only 22 when he decided to hitch-hike from England to India through Russia, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but he wasn't the conventional follower of the hippy trail. A fascination with the deeds of the early explorers, a history degree in the bag, an army career already planned and a shoestring budget of £750 - including for the flight home - he was determined to find out more about the countries of the Caucusus and beyond - and meet the people who lived and worked there. This is a true traveller's tale in the tradition of the best of the genre, populated by a cast of eccentric characters; from mujahedeen fighters to the Russian mafia.
