My Year of Beds free pdf Freedom adventure independence, loneliness and alienation- To travel alone is to know all these things. To travel alone not just to learn to know the world, but to learn to know yourself, it is to be silent, and willing to allow the unknown to plant a seed of change in your mind. To travel alone is to develop a deep awareness of your own ignorance and insignificance and to become aware of the grand splendour of the planet that harbours us and the universe of which we are a small part. Join Annette , the first woman to drive solo around the planet , in a glorified delivery van called 'The Wish Mobile' In the second book of a two book series, Annette continues her drive around the planet, heading into China where...The driving gets more and more abominable, as does the road. Dogs, chained to posts outside muddy hovels, bark and howl at the Wish Mobile, the traffic piles into a dense, throbbing monster with greasy black breath and evil temper, while the red tuk-tuks slide through the busses and trucks like mosquitoes searching for a victim. The trucks and busses crunch gears and burn tires for position, the tuk-tuks dodge and dive, bicycle riders balance on the knife-edge of destruction, but nobody gives an inch. To the United States of America where she can once again understand everything, not always an advantage, and also discovers that what she has begun to view as normal driving does not go down well in America...Compared with the starting-gun concentration of China, the American drivers seem to be wallowing in boredom in their air-conditioned SUVs. To liven up their driving experience they multitask behind the wheel: drink coffee, talk on the phone, do their make-up, and read the paper, all this while driving down the highway. When I throw in my singular style of driving, which by now is a daredevil mix of every outrageous driving trick in the world, I soon have those sharing the road with me in apoplectic fits of rage. Now, from the comfort of your favorite chair, you can join other readers from around the globe who have said again and again...'you make me feel as if I am in the car with you' in seeing the world through the eyes of an artist with a flair for language. The mix of travel, personal observation, humour and the little vignettes with people is nicely judged and the philosophy lifts it to another plane.

About Annette Jahnel

Annette is a writer, photographer, inspirational speaker and world traveller. She would like to live in a world where borders and boundaries were only figments of the imagination, and language was a universal think-tank, a world where the mind advanced faster than the computer, and the only thing that governed us was our own self-control. Annette thinks that the only way forward is to evolve She believes human evolution can only take place in the human mind and that humans should pay more attention to thinking than shopping. Annette thinks a good think is a great way to pass the time and that when she leaves people happier and more inspired than when she found them, she believes she has done well.
