The Hunt For Puerto del Faglioli

The hunt for Puerto Del Faglioli book coverA Motorcycle Adventure In Search Of The Improbable

It’s 2008. The world enters economic meltdown. A global flu pandemic looms. An historical US presidential election is taking place and, somewhere in the Americas, a lone Irishman is coaxing his temperamental Italian motorcycle through another electrical breakdown…

Interspersed with anecdote, social observation and liberal doses of humour, this book follows writer and seasoned overland traveller Paddy Tyson, through his battle with bureaucracy, bike breaking road surfaces, illness, accident, gun toting police and a pasty Celtic complexion remarkably unsuited to the Central American sun.

Published as a collection for the first time, this witty and informative account is essential reading for travellers and would-be adventurers.

“A travel writer after my own heart.” Ted Simon, author of Jupiter’s Travels

“A fantastic account of life on the road and an antidote to celebrity overland adventures – I laughed out loud many times and felt like I was riding pillion. Can’t wait for the next adventure.” Gwen Roberts, Motorcycle Mojo Magazine

“Funny, informative and thought provoking. A great travel guide and a great read” Nich Brown, The Road

“A great book if you want to finish each read with a smile. Thoroughly recommended.”
Sam Manicom, author

“Humorous yet totally absorbing” Motorcycle Monthly

“This refreshingly anecdotal book reads like a mate down the pub who’s travelled and can tell a good story” Adventure Bike Rider

“We are seeking legal advice” Puerto del Faglioli Tourist Board
