This might be some people's cup of tea, but I barely made it into the British Isles with this guy. Between his dopey wide-eyed "land of magical fairies" notions of Ireland, his cloying anthropomorphism of his backpack, and the lack of common sense I ran out of patience with this guy's adventures. There are better tales of travel out there.
My husband and I both enjoyed this book immensely! The fascinating country-by-country memoir of the man who walked around the world, in four years. Fascinating reading, well written and meaningful beyond the mere account of the journey.
This book offers a great adventure story for those craving it. The author does a great job of detailing his crazy encounters as he walks around the world. If you enjoyed Bill Bryson's Appalachian walk book, you will love this one!
