Being a regular traveler, I loved all the stories of Ian's adventures - but the book has several irritating flaws that a good editor could have easily corrected:

1. repetitive language descriptions
2. repetitive weepy self pity
3. generally the writing itself wasn't good quality

If you can ignore the flaws, the book is a good romp around the world.

typical travelogue, some interesting things, some boring. I'm just glad I didn't have to pay for this one. It looked interesting but didn't live up to my expectations

This person is courageous. To actually leave everything behind, pack up and go. At the sane time, to be truthful, I envy him. I'm sure it took planning and skill. Most of all it took all these generous and thoughtful people to be there. At first I thought this adventure was going to be tedious. Turns out its different, fascinating and wonderful. A few elements are missing in this book: where you visit how are the people living their lives, what is the food like, the hotels or hostels are they secure is the staff friendly, are the people you meet honest. Overall I enjoyed this author and am looking forward to reading him again.

It was wonderful to read all the adventures and laughed through quite a few of them. Well written and will recommend it to anyone who is having a dull moment.

This is a follow up to an earlier book by the author who tells of more adventures around the world. They range from seeing a volcano in Hawaii to helping out in a soup kitchen in Los Angeles.

"Kind of entertaining" is more like it. was free for a day so I scooped it up- good for that price.

The book is okay and the author seems like an interesting enough guy but the writing isn't very passionate or descriptive. Doesn't paint a picture, as a lover of travel writing I like to feel I was there sharing the adventure which I didn't feel while reading this one. Not terrible but lacking.

A quick read but it bothered me that a lot was spelled wrong so many times. Some cool adventures...I had been around the world and found some of these very interesting.
