Availability: Ready to download

Even after crossing the Atlantic ocean on a rowing boat in 2006, Alex Bellini still felt the urge to challenge himself once again. So, on 21st February 2008, he climbed again into his boat to cross the Pacific ocean alone, on a journey from Peru to Australia. He needed to cross 10 time zones, 17,000 km and do more than 5 million row strokes. A physical, and especially ment Even after crossing the Atlantic ocean on a rowing boat in 2006, Alex Bellini still felt the urge to challenge himself once again. So, on 21st February 2008, he climbed again into his boat to cross the Pacific ocean alone, on a journey from Peru to Australia. He needed to cross 10 time zones, 17,000 km and do more than 5 million row strokes. A physical, and especially mental, challenge. An adventure that is almost legendary, in which Alex was able never to feel completely alone, thanks to the constant support of thousands of people that followed him via the web, the radio, and especially the feeling of complete unity with the surrounding ocean. An ocean than was not always friendly. After writing down his thoughts, day after day, he made us feel what all this time in the sea, alone, meant for him: “it was as though the world of lands above sea level suddenly had disappeared.” Indeed, when time becomes endless we are able to understand what really matters in the life on a man. Alex learned that the value of a man cannot be judged measuring his successes, but with the dreams that keep him alive. In his book he also tells the love story with his wife Francesca, that gave him the necessary courage to go on, from the land, far away from him. About the Author Alex Bellini was born in a small mountain village in the Northern part of Italy, in 1978. In 1999 he is selected to participate to the final tests for the Camel Trophy. In 2000 he runs his first marathon in New York, and in 2001 he participates in the Marathon des Sables, 260 km in the Moroccan desert. In 2002 he runs the Alaska Ultrasport, a running race of more than 600 km in Alaska, dragging a survival sledge. In 2003 he participates, once more, to the Alaska Ultrasport, running 1400 km in 27 days. After two attempts, in 2005 Alex becomes the first man to even row across the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic ocean alone on a rowing boat reaching Fortaleza, (Brazil) after 226 days and 11.000 km. On 21st February 2008, on the same rowing boat, Alex goes down in the navigation history and marks a new record for the longest successful rowing of the Pacific ocean with a rowing boat. In 2011, from June 18th to August 27th, Alex runs from Los Angeles to New York. 700 hours of running, 120 marathons in 70 days and more than 5200 km without a single day off the road.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Alex Bellini's story: 'Alone across the ocean: 300 days of rowing solo across the Pacific' is definitely worth a read. I've laughed and I've cried while reading this extraordinary story of this extraordinary man.

    A little flowery at some moments, but the book did an amazing job of sharing his experience, really making you feel what he felt. I read Roz Savage's Pacific book first, but it didn't cut it for me compared to this one; this showed more pain and the everyday trials undergone A little flowery at some moments, but the book did an amazing job of sharing his experience, really making you feel what he felt.
