A chance conversation on the Trans Siberian Express en route to Outer Mongolia causes Lydia Laube to veer off course and take a long way home. She heads south thousands of kilometres to the eerie mountains of South China, in search of a broachable pass into Vietnam. Lydia never takes no for an answer. Against all protests she finds ways to venture through rarely travelled parts of China, overcoming language barriers and standing her ground in crowded buses, boats and trains. She makes a meal of a snake and submits to the ministrations of the Dental Department of your worst nightmare. Leaving China by pedal-power, Lydia Laube enters Vietnam by motorbike and discovers a beautiful and resilient country. Sit tight as you ride with our brave lone traveller. Her adventures will amaze and impress you.
