Come Together on horseback: a blind date trip through remote Central Asia.
Three years ago, Jonny Bealby met an aid worker, fell madly in love and jumped at her suggestion that they return from Pakistan to Britain on horseback together. However, when Jonny went to Pakistan at Christmas to plan the trip, he was greeted by: 'Jonny, I've never felt like this before, you're amazing, you've touched me as no one else has - but I've met a dishy diplomat...' Upset and disappointed, Jonny said he couldn't face the idea of the journey and was searching for somewhere to live in London for a while. But then he received a call from his agent: Jonny, we've got a fantastic tv deal for your trip.' 'But, Mark, the trip's off - I haven't got a girl.'
'That's not a problem, Jonny, you can find another,' replied his agent. Jonny asked friends and advertised. As soon as he saw Sarah he knew she was the one to join him on his epic journey through such exotic places as Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Unfortunately, Sarah had a boyfriend. Nevertheless, one week after meeting they set out for Pakistan together. Told through his eyes and hers, the book recounts what then happened.
“An absolute page-turner... I found myself firing through the 'traveling' passages so that I could get to the latest campfire dust-up.... Wonderful descriptions of the Mountains of Heaven and the ancient city of Samarkand.”
