Tuvizo Wishes Irish Cyclist And Author Dervla Murphy - Happy 83rd Birthday Celebrations
(EMAILWIRE.COM, December 01, 2014 ) Sarasota, Florida -- Jo Parkes and Abi Tunstall, of Tuvizo, join many people from around the world and wish Dervla Murphy a very happy 83rd birthday on 28th of November. Dervla Murphy was born in Ireland in 1931, and had to leave school at the age of 14 to look after her invalid mother for the next sixteen years.
Dervla was given a second hand bike and a second hand atlas on her tenth birthday and so began her passion for travel. In the 1940s, with so little traffic on the roads, there was little thought for road The Tuvizo Reflective Running Vest provides high visibility in the day and excellent reflective qual safety, so helmets and Reflective vests and Reflective belts for cycling, were unheard of at the time.
While slowly riding her bike up a steep hill close to her home, Dervla had a thought, "I rather proudly looked at my legs, slowly pushing the pedals around and the thought came to me, If I went on doing this for long enough, I could get to India.' This was the trip Dervla began in 1963, following the death of her parents. Her first book, Full Tilt: Ireland to India With a Bicycle, tells of this trip with humour but also with a deep understanding of the different cultures and ways of life she experienced on her journey.
Dervla Murphy has written 25 books, all bar one, focus on her journeys to far flung places. Dervla believes that her trip to Peru with her daughter, Rachel, was the one where her eyes were opened to the immense poverty and hardship that billions of people around the world suffer from. Dervla's later books reflect the concern which she has for the world in general and countries in particular. When asked whether she was worried about the world's future, her answer was, "Well, let's face it, it's hard to be optimistic."
