Around The World in 1000 Days
Fredrika Ek

Why bike around the world and why not? It took my scarcely 20 seconds to pencil in that line on a Google world map, printed in greyscale. The line. From Sundsvall to Sundsvall - by way of the world. In my mind, it was not any more complicated than that.

Deserts and mountains. National borders and the boundaries of pain. Over doorsteps and straight into peoples homes and lives. It was all about curiosity. And a burning desire to find out what awaited me on the other side. My name is Fredrika. I am a very ordinary girl with occasionally unusual ideas.

This is the book about one of them. I set out, and 1042 days and a planet later, I came home again with a story to tell.
