Touching the World: A Blind Woman Two Wheels 25,000 Miles by Cathy Birchall and Bernard Smith

Cathy Birchall is the first blind person ever to circumnavigate the globe on a motorcycle, covering 26,385 miles, 31 countries and 5 continents with her companion Bernard on an 18 year old motorcycle. Adventure and courage all the way – From feeling the traffic passing so close it touches you as you ride through Indian cities, to mounting an elephant from the front (yes really!) and climbing Macchu Picchu, this wonderful book is just full of surprises. You feel you are almost there with Cathy and Bernard, as they experience so much and see so many different cultures. This is a travel book of extraordinary beauty and interest – and unique in the perspective it takes. Cathys story is inspirational and uplifting. Touching the World is written from Cathys point of view, that of a blind woman. It is not only an amazing travel story but challenges all our perceptions of our own boundaries as well as those of others. On their travels Bernard and Cathy almost become a single person as they overcome every obstacle with strength and courage – helped in generous measure by the unwavering kindness of strangers around the world. In doing so Cathy achieved not just her dream but something of a landmark for us all! What is it like to be blind? Touching The World gives you a real insight into the nature of blindness and the ability of the human spirit to transcend almost any difficulty. If this question can be answered then Cathy Birchalls story comes as close as is possible! Cathys courage has been truly inspirational for many blind and partially sighted people across the world Stephen Remington, Action for Blind People; An incredible and inspirational story. Ride, Cathy, ride! Ted Simon author of Jupiters Travels.
