Alastair Humphreys' round the world journey of 46,000 miles was an old-fashioned adventure: long, lonely, low-budget and spontaneous. Cycling across five continents and sailing over the oceans, his ride took four years to complete, on a tiny budget of hoarded student loans. Thunder and Sunshine is the final part of the remarkable expedition. Having pedalled through the Middle East and Africa and to Cape Town. He still had to cross to South America and ride upto Canada across Siberia and back through Europe to finish his journey. In many ways, this was only the beginning. Thunder and Sunshine recounts an epic journey that succeeded through Humphreys' trust in the kindness of strangers, at a time where the interactions of our global community are more confused and troubled than ever.
