Publisher's Summary

Who tries to ride deep into Iraq just to see if the news reports are accurate, ends up joining a street demonstration against someone else's government, or sticks their arm between the jaws of a wild mountain wolf-dog?

After the success of his first book, In Search of Greener Grass, Graham Field hits the road again with his bargain-basement KLR650, recording his experiences in his inimitable and revealingly honest diary style. The Caucasus region is often overlooked by travelers, but Graham may inadvertently be about to change all that.

A single pivotal event can transform any journey, and accepting rather than fighting that moment can have glorious consequences for the traveler. In this instant the result ensures a fantastic exploration of eastern Europe and beyond, the discovery of a hidden gem in Georgia, and meanderings that leave us all much richer.

Ultimately, Eureka is an almost accidental realization that we cannot control our mood on the road, but merely embracing it can be the most enlightening travel experience of all.

Living the dream thorough you

I enjoyed t this second book as much as Graham's first, why? The no nonsense narration and honesty. Oh and best line went something like "needle dropping off the speedo like the over dosing arm of a smackhead" Or something like that anyway 🤣🤣. I laughed out loud. Great effort once again Graham cheers 🍻

Another great listen...

As with Graham’s first book, this one does not disappoint. Ride along on an adventure as exotic to most of us as an Eskimo at a beach party, yet as familiar as the sense of uncertainty we can all relate to when faced with saving face or setting our own agenda.

Enjoyable for adventure motorcycle riders.

I really enjoyed the story since I am an avid long distance adventure rider. However, being American, I had to determine through context what some of the slang words used in the book actually meant. His description of the scenery, road conditions, people he encountered, etc... gave me a good visual of what he witnessed. I didn’t care for the fowl language used unnecessarily.

slow start but worth sticking around for the rest

Loved it. Kept watching chapter count wishing the book would grow more so I could listen longer. Kept waiting for a left turn and the journey continuing. The sprinkling of puns was quite a treat.

Graham satisfy again

Graham's first audio book was a complete joy and I felt his laughter, his humor, pain and frustration. After finishing that audio book I thought "Now here's a bloke I could see having a laugh with". He's a long hair like me, likes metal and drinks tea. tops in my book. I just finished his second audio book "Ureka" and my thought was reaffirmed. Thanks Graham for taking me on that journey with you, it was a good laugh. One side note. Despite its vague reliability, the KLR is the most wretched motorcycle ever created. I could never own anything that ugly.

Honest and enjoyable account

Having listened to and read many overland adventure stories I love Graham’s honest and self critical accounts. He doesn’t rose tint any situations to make himself sound more competent or a capable. If those of us that overland care to admit it or not, this is how most of us see ourselves. Looking forward to reading the next instalment of Graham’s life adventure! Keep up the good work

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Graham narrates well, he entertains and you can hear the emotions as he tells the stories of his travels. Happiness, frustration and relief. He sparks memories of my own much smaller travels and the enjoyment of travelling different places and meeting different folks reminding me that every journey starts with a single step then you throw a leg over the saddle and ride. Thanks Graham. CHEERS !!

Great book, loved the first but this is better

Having had all of Graham’s books for awhile now and never got round to reading them as I’m a bit of a lazy git when it comes to reading, but absolutely loving these audio books. Makes a real difference that the author is using his spoken words to deliver the text. Loved the comparison of Clacton-on-Sea airfield and arriving in Bulgaria (former Clacton-on-Sea resident) I felt similar when crossing into Romania last year. Funny that you couldn’t find Buzludzha, I found it but never got to the top as couldn’t see a way up!! Looking forward to listening to Different Nature’s
