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.

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.

cracking book

I read this book as a paperback some years ago but have just listened to it as the audiobook version, with Graham's dulcit tones narrating the journey.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and the audiobook came alive again.
It's hard to write a sequel to a brilliant book like Greener Grass, and although completely different, this book is just as good, and certainly as funny and entertaining as his original. Highly recommended if you enjoy the real adventure, done on a shoestring, without the need for the Touratech catalogue, and a cynicism for the armchair adventurers.

Enjoying every mile

Having enjoyed in search of greener grass, I was looking forward to Eureka, and it did not disappoint. Graham does make you feel that you
are with him on every mile of his journey.
For anyone thinking of taking off on a journey of discovery, this book
will inspire you to get out there.

Another awesome adventure with Graham, this guy really makes the most of what he has, makes me look sad in comparison. So if you can’t do it then read about how he has.

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.
