Synopsis

"Over these next pages, you will be carried into and through the world of a backpacker. A world in which, I hope, one day you will discover for yourself. From Thailand to India, from Scotland to Morocco, this story will take you into worlds unknown and places you may never have dreamed existed. A million faces have crossed my path and a million more spectacular happenings have been witnessed. Through this journey I have seen the greatest sense of contentment bound by the chains of immense poverty, I have spent days in solitude under the serene teachings of Buddhist monks, and I have caught a glimpse of an underwater world where time ceases to exist. A thousand experiences have crept up into my memories, planting a single seed of mystery. This seed has since grown, creating an astounding urge to continue seeing more of this fantastic planet. Before the time comes again when I am able to traverse more of this globe, I must share my story: e-mail by e-mail, thought by thought, letter by letter." (Author's Intro). This travelogue is written on three levels. You read the emails from the author that were sent to friends and family back home, journal entries from the author's personal thoughts, and letters that the author accumulated form friends he had met along the way around the world. It is multi-layered and includes thoughts on reintegration into home life as well as advice and opinions for the prospective traveler. It is a pass-the-torch, non-fiction novel set out to inspire and intrigue others. An adventure of the mind and a voyage around the world without even leaving your sofa.
