Publisher's Summary

Tasmania to London. One end of the globe to the other. Eight hundred hitchhiking rides. Eighteen thousand miles. Four seasons. Three continents. Nineteen countries. How many rides does it take to hitch from Tasmania to London? Rogue wanderer Jamie Maslin decides to find out, propelling him into a high-stakes adventure of a lifetime that sees him tackle searing desert, freezing mountains, tropical jungle, and barren steppes on little more than a thumb and a prayer.
The Long Hitch Home is a dynamic mix of heart-thumping adventure and well-researched social, cultural, and historical commentary on the score of countries Maslin encountered during his arduous and at times life-threatening journey home. Whether writing about exotic backstreets of cities few of us will get to see or unique wonders far off the beaten track, Jamie Maslin gives a thrilling and often hilarious account of what it is like to hit the road and live with intensity and rapture.

Great Story Despite Kyrzygstan

I loved the book even with the political undertones throughout. From the shores of Tasmania all the way back to London it was a fantastic story. I will pick up anything Jamie Maslin writes. Ben Owen did a decent job reading except he did butcher some place names along the way. He did manage to say Kyrgyz people but then almost always say Kyrzygstan... nope Kyrgyzstan. He said that a lot. Sorry the geo nerd in me could not let it go. He also said Kazakhstan wrong adding an I between Kazakh and stan. Yes in grand scheme minor but it would be like someone saying Bitrain or Untied States.
