Product Description

About the Author

Jason Smart was born in 1971 in Middlesbrough, Northern England. After moving to Yorkshire to study for his degree, he became a primary school teacher, eventually moving to the Middle East to take up a position in an international school in Qatar. A major traveller, Jason has been to over 100 countries, spanning six continents, including some less-travelled nations such as Paraguay, Bangladesh, Rwanda and the Comoros. His first travel book, The Red Quest, described his mission to visit every country of the former Soviet Union, plus the six Warsaw Pact nations. His second book, Flashpacking through Africa, details his travels through 17 African nations, and his third book, The Balkan Odyssey, describes his adventures at travelling through all the countries of the former Yugoslavia, plus Albania. His fourth book, Temples, Tuk-tuks and Fried Fish Lips is about to be published and chronicles Jason's travels through the Far East. Jason Smart's first published article was contained within a book entitled, From The Grand Canyon to the Great Wall, published by Slenk Dee LCC in 2012. He has also had articles printed in travel magazines and web-based travel sites. In June 2013, his first paperback was published by Destinworld Publishing. Entitled, Take Your Wings and Fly, it details his progression through the UK Private Pilot's Licence.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys travel writing books and likes to read about people and places often of the beaten track. There is no putting up of tents and breaking down of bikes as the author and his wife stay in hotels albeit some leaving a lot to be desired. The local transport they used did bring all kind of problems at times and some of the encounters often described by the author were simply hilarious.The book is very easy to read and takes you to so many fascinating places, a very hard book to put down.

Warts and all , Jason tells it as it is.. I look forward to reading Jasons books, they dont disappoint .. I felt I was on the bus with him and his wife as they traveled from place to place. Some area they visited were a bit better than others.. Some maybe they shouldnt have gone to at all.. I read a lot of travel books.. this one I will read again in the future.

A thoroughly enjoyable brief trip through South America,possibly too brief and bereft of information.But,it is not a travel guide so why complain?Well.it made you want to go there so you wanted more information.Nevertheless,would recommend to anyone with a yearn to "do" South America.

The author and his partner travel to a very few destinations within 3 weeks. A bad read for backpackers as they speed through destinations with lots of money, and hardly see anything more than the absolute essential highlights. There are some interesting parts and descriptions, but be aware that the author gets his facts incorrect at times (Machu Picchu train station does not exist, Henry Morgan was Welsh/British, not English etc etc). An ok quick read if you're bored and don't want much depth.

A whirlwind three week adventure taking in some amazing locations .The journeys were obviously covered with time and safety concerns as an issue .Unfortunately ,this understandable lack of risks taken , regarding modes of transport and areas ventured into , results in a somewhat sterile collection of experiences .Having chosen such an exciting list of destinations there is no feel in the narrative of either of them getting to meet any "real" South Americans beyond the safety net of the usual tourist trips.

I am amazed Jason has a career as a travel writer. He seems totally risk averse, his wife even more so. They go to places, deliberately avoid anything that might have to do with culture and make a snap judgment about whether it's a nice place or not a nice place. Travel is wasted on these two, they would be happier at Centre Parcs.

Jason writes what a large proportion of the travelling public want to say, but are frightened as "their holiday" would appear a waste of time.
