“…a delightful book. When somebody has the courage to cut his ties with convention and the boring way of doings things, and writes about it with charm and wit, it’s likely to be worth reading. The book is a joy and a delight, and I’d recommend it to anyone. It’s the ultimate book of escape.”
John Simpson, BBC World Affairs Editor

‘The pace we are taken on this remarkable journey, the fresh, sharply observed descriptions of people, places and situations make this one of the best travel tales I have ever read.

Despite this, his tale shows us that he has fallen in love with a world that is a heart warmingly positive place around which to travel.’
