This is Mark's story about travelling from the USA to Turkey, with a few hundred dollars of donations made to his PayPal account, and his quest for surviving the month long journey mainly on the kindness of others.

Having never visited Turkey, I'm unsure as to whether Mark's experiences with the local people where the norm, or unique to him being an American, and sometimes visiting parts of the country that foreigners rarely make an effort to go. I'd like to think it was the norm as Mark's point will have truly been proven - there are more good and kind people in the world than bad.

His story and the people he met on his travels are inspirational however the cynical side of me does need to question something another critic raised to Mark near the end of his book which is would a Turkish traveller be met with such a welcome reception, if s/he had the same quest and decided to visit the USA? Or the UK for that matter? I would love to think this stranger would be treated as kindly as Mark but I have my doubts. Due to recent events in both countries, the USA and the UK can be very suspicious of any foreigners, which is really sad but unfortunately a fact.

I do believe of course they would meet several individuals who would express a desire to help and make them welcome however I think their overall experience would be very mixed, with possibly some people being downright hostile to their plight.

Mark does prove however, that in his case, people's generosity and kindness know no bounds and and on this basis, he believes that anything is possible should we set our heart and mind to achieving our goal.

To steal a quote from the book "to change one's life: start immediately. Do it flamboyantly. No exceptions".

I have often dreamed of travel, so when I discovered couchsurfing I was very interested. A way to travel the world cheaply, and better still, to meet people and make friends rather than wander around alone looking at architecture.

In this book Mark Dickinson shows how easy it can be to follow your dreams, and shows that a little benevolence and trust can go a very long way.

The book was a pleasure from start to finish. Truly inspiring.

It is a heart-warming story of a teacher who tries to inspire his students by showing them it is possible to travel overseas only trusting good in people!

It is a precious book for myself as I, my wife, my friends are in it specially :)

Everything aside, it is really nice to sea what an American guy feels about my country and my people!

And yes, it is about Couchsurfing as well :)

So buy it! :D
