Meet the Author

Peter Moore is Australia's best-loved travel author. His first book, No Shitting in the Toilet, quickly became a backpacker classic. His second, The Wrong Way Home, is regarded as 'must-read' for those considering taking the overland route from London to Sydney. And Vroom with a View, which captures the unbridled joy of jumping on a Vespa and riding around Italy.


His other books include The Full Montezuma (travelling around Central America with the Girl Next Door), Swahili for the Broken-Hearted (Cape Town to Cairo by any means possible), Same Same But Different (the Mekong Delta on a '64 Vespa) and Vroom by the Sea (the sunny parts of Italy on a bright orange Vespa).


Peter is currently working on a book about Britain called Blimey: One man's attempt to become a Brit on the side.
