The wrong way round, a book worth reading

Advantagesvery witty, imformative,reader really gets the feeling they're there with the writer

Disadvantagesin all honesty id say nothing negative about this book, enjoyed readin it

The adventures he has, the people he meets and the funny witty way he describes events makes me think hes as great a travel author as the better known Bill Bryson. A variety of countries are included, such as places in asia so theres something in there for travel fans, no matter what part of the world youre interested in. He travels overland from London to ..."
