great book, 30 July 2011
Just put this down and its prompted me to write my first ever book review (despite actually having two of my own books on Amazon). I would love to meet John, he has a great philosophy on life and its rare to find real adventurers, or indeed placed to go and find adventure. Heather, his wife and companion on this trip, also sounds like a real trooper. My only criticism is that the publisher should have put in some photos (they had a camera as it was mentioned a number of times). It is not ruined by lack of imagery as John is a good writer and paints a vivid picture of his surroundings with his words.
I would totally recommend reading this. I actually took it on a motorbike tour but only got round to reading it a month after i got back. If you can read it in the tropics i imagine it would have even more impact.
John, if you're reading this, you've inspired me to make more of my holidays - thanks!
