Paul Rowlands takes us into his world as a truck driver, initially around rural Suffolk and the rest of the UK, before embarking on the infamous Middle East run. Here, he recalls his hair-raising experiences, some of them humorous, some alarming, and the many friends he made. The long-distance lorry driver experiences life in the raw, with many hardships and occasional comforts. Run-ins with the locals, dramatic encounters with foreign drivers and mechanical problems seem to be the norm, but they are tempered by the sheer beauty of mountain passes, lakeside stops and the generous hospitality of many he meets. The camaraderie in the trucking fraternity has seen Paul through many a crisis, and he shares the belief that help is always at hand when a fellow driver is facing a problem. Take a ride through foreign lands in the cab of a long-haul lorry for a new perspective on overland travel.Biographie de l'auteur :
