From the Author
If you're looking for a literary masterpiece, this is not it.
If you're looking for a travel book, this is not it.
And if you're looking for a flawless lead character, then this book is definitely not it.
This is a real life adventure, written by a young man who is at the very beginning of his quest for freedom. It's a story on two levels - that which can be seen and that which cannot; that which is written and that which is going on behind the words. It's a story of questions more than answers and many questions are newly formed and not fully developed.
It's a human story, so expect mistakes.
It's also an African story, so expect adventure, drama, action, betrayal,corruption, tragedy, chaos, comedy and a whole lot more.
Please note that this book and the style in which it is written is not everyone's cup of tea. Please download a free sample to check it out before you buy it.
Enjoy the ride!
From the Back Cover
My mid-life crisis came early; I was only 23 when I began pondering the purpose of my life. Desperately unhappy with where I was, and the future that I could see for myself, I made a crazy decision to sacrifice everything and follow my heart.
It took three years for my heart to speak, but when it did, the call was clear. I dropped out of university, said goodbye to friends and family, stuffed my life into a 25-litre backpack, and set off into the unknown.
What followed was a five year African adventure that carried me to places, and through experiences, that I could never have imagined in my wildest dreams.
Did I hear my heart correctly?
Could my heart be trusted?
What if I was wrong?
These are questions that only time would reveal, all I could do was just keep walking.
This is my story.
It could be yours.
