From childhood Dervla Murphy harboured a desire to visit Rumania. Two weeks after the fall of Ceausescu her dream was realized, and this is the story of her journey, by bicycle and on foot. Fate struck at the start. Crossing the border by train, she was robbed of her rucksack and all her possessions, and a week later she was lucky to survive a serious car accident. Undaunted, she continued to explore the country, staying in urban blocs, small towns and traditional villages, on the plains and in the mountains. Wherever she went she found people both exhilarated and bewildered, as they emerged from the gloom of an oppressive communist regime. On a second visit the following year, she discovered a significant change in the national mood. She also experienced overwhelming hospitality, making friends from all walks of life. The book was shortlisted for the Thomas Cook Travel Book award.

About the Author:

Dervla Murphy is one of the very best loved of travel writers. She was born in County Waterford and since 1964 has been regularly publishing accounts of her journeys - by bicycle and on foot - in the remoter areas of four continents. She has also written about the problems of Northern Ireland, the hazards of nuclear power, and race relations in Britain. The Times Literary Supplement called her 'an admirable woman - she has a romantic soul and a keen eye'.
