Reading Traversa takes you on a great journey into the realms of adventure, into which we often wish or dream of heading but leave to others. Fran Sandham is the best guide to follow, taking the reader on a difficult and challenging trek.
Key distinguishing points of Traversa are the fact that Fran Sandham took the decision to go it truly alone, with no corporate (or other) sponsorship, and chose to ensure that his route did not follow that of any previous explorer.
Humour adds to the description from the first page and Fran Sandham has effectively interwoven elements of historical fact and local culture.
For seasoned and armchair travellers alike, Traversa is a highly entertaining read.
