Sam Manicom’s second book in his series of world travels is a triumph of storytelling.
Continuing his journey from Africa to the Australian continent and then up through Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, Sam weaves a tale leaving you wanting more.
Fortunately, two more books make up this series.
Journey with Sam as he narrates his tales and takes you on an intimate ride.

Sam's writings and his narrative are both very enjoyable and easy to listen to. My only complaint is I'm running out of books in this series to listen to!
Would you listen to Under Asian Skies again? Why?
Yes. It is great to hear Sams adventures and close calls and how he gets through them.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Under Asian Skies?
Roding through India and problems with getting boat passage for his bike.
Have you listened to any of Sam Manicom’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Into Africa... Both are really good.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes and no. I use Audio books while travelling on public transport.
Any additional comments?
Sam is a brilliant story teller who makes you feel like you are travelling with him. The fact he narrates his own books makes it more personal.
While this is about a man riding his motorcycle the bike itself is only the vehicle. .. bit he metaphorically and literally and allows for the adventure.
This book is great for both people who love bikes as well as those who have never been near one.

What great book I had to buy the other 3 books just to continue the story. ☺️
Any additional comments?
Once again, Sam continues with his inspirational journey, told in his own words. Taking on a journey that so very few people in the world have taken on and sharing his stories from the road without the slightest hint of ego or elitism is truly a wonderful experience to listen to. Despite adversities, the human spirit prevails and Sam seems to find a way to see the positives in almost every situation, and savours the experience for every thing its worth. if you need a reason to believe the world is not the scary place it can be portrayed at times, just listen to Sam's story and it might just restore your faith in mankind a little.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to the next one. Maybe whilst I'm riding my bike on my journey.
