• Right Beyond the Horizon tells the gripping tale of Christopher's latest voyage between 2012 and 2016: a motorcycle adventure from Germany to Australia • This time, he's taken a right beyond the horizon...What if the journey of a lifetime becomes a lifelong journey? When people say "life's a journey," some take this aphorism more literally than others. Christopher Many embarked on an overland trip in 1997, believing he'd spend no more than a year or two on the road. Well, that didn't quite work out as planned; 19 years have passed, and he is still somewhere out there, doing what he loves most: circumnavigating the globe with vehicles of questionable reliability in a quest to understand, through first-hand experience, what makes humanity "tick". Right Beyond the Horizon tells the gripping tale of Christopher's latest voyage between 2012 and 2016: a motorcycle adventure from Germany to Australia, together with his partner Laura Pattara.

Come along for an exhilarating ride around the global block with this unusual vagabond and witness all the joys and hardships such a lifestyle entails every day will be full of surprises and utterly unpredictable! However, you should also be warned: some roads detour into the shadows where the scales of global justice are imbalanced and humanity's failings are all too evident. There's also a major risk that, after the last page, you'll feel inspired to pack your rucksack, free yourself from modern society's constraints and head off into the sunset indefinitely. You wouldn t be the first...
Christopher Many, born in New York City in 1970 to an American father and German mother, has always had a knack of breaking conventional norms and following his own dreams. More than anything else, he wanted to find out what lies "beyond the horizon". After completing an apprenticeship as a boat builder in Bavaria, Christopher lived mo...
