I laughed so hard I got an ab workout! I loved hearing about his adventures abroad, although I'd rather be living some of them myself. If you can't travel then reading about it by a great writer is the next best thing.

I thought it was interesting that the author would drop everything just to travel the world with nothing really more then some extra clothes and some cash! Most of the events that happen to him while traveling are pretty funny, but some of them are kind of disturbing.

I thought this would be a great book - I love to read books on other's travels. However I was very disappointed - I could not even finish this book. The author's observations on other people are just plain mean and I have never been a fan of reading other people's erotic fantasies. This is a horrid book.
