In 2007 Rowley decided to backpack around the World for over a year. The mission: to inject some change and new experiences into his dull and predictable life. This is a light-hearted and humorous travel diary of his time in the USA, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panamá, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, New Zealand, Australia and The Philippines.
Plenty of action, near deaths, adventure and misadventure, backpacking tips and prices. But most importantly some wonderful places and characters from around the World...
Some past reviews:
- Very good read,couldn't put the book down.
Very good book with a lot of action in it,wish i was on that journey but has inspired me to travel the world 1 day (Norman Worley)
- Better than Bryson?!
This has to be the best narrative of travel writing I have read since Bill Bryson. There are laugh out loud moments, as well as sheer shocking ones. A great, easy read. I recommend it highly, especially if you've travelled in the same regions, as it will be a great reminder of some fantastic travel memories. (DGG)
- Good book
Really enjoyable book only let down by the atrocious punctuation and a few factual errors. plurals do not have an apostrophe and the mayans are a long gone civilisation! That said, well written travelogue, would buy more of Mr Macklin's ebooks (Shelley2802)
- Fascinating read
Fascinating read. It will make you want to grab your backpack and embark on your own adventure. Would recommend to anyone.
