Made me laugh, think, and want to travel
This was one of the most descriptive stories I have heard from an author. I loved his use of self-deprecating humour and the analogies to life, I think we all need nowadays.
If you like true travel stories, this is a great book. The author doesn't claim to be perfect, as a writer, or a human.. But he is trying his best, and that's what we can learn from.
