A Journal of my cycle through Portugal Spain and France by Eugene O’Leary is a journal of a 67-year old Irishman’s 21-day journey through Portugal, Spain and France. Most daily entries include information on distance biked, weather, terrain, etc. Though I did learn a bit about the culture and sights worth seeing, this is not a travel guide. It isn’t even about Eugene; it is just a log of his travels—a log in need of editing.
Having a map of the journey would have helped this reader immensely. Without a map, the book was just a listing of towns and distances.
The book is a fundraiser for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin. Ireland. If you buy it as a donation to the hospital, you might want to scan through the book.
