The story of two unique trips with a business purpose – but this is no business book or how-to guide; rather, it’s a “delightful, off-beat travelogue with an off-beat much travelled narrator, plenty of vivid characters to meet en route, anecdotal fun, plus an education on local cultures and cuisines” (says my first reviewer, and I couldn’t put it better myself).
Part One follows a whirlwind business trip around half the countries in South America in just a fortnight, in which I faced near-death experiences in planes and cars, met civil insurrection face-to-face, risked kidnap and had to overcome mindless bureaucracy that could derail the itinerary on a daily basis.
Then, in Part Two, I travel around the Far East for three weeks in the company of a obstreperous, can’t-do-without but can’t-do-with female colleague, learning new cultures fast. Oh, and all in the pursuit of business goals that somehow still seem to be met along the way.”
The first reviews are in!
“Exciting, fun, and all-around surprising. A clear masterpiece. A stellar literature piece that transcends its genre and brings forward one of the most unforgettable stories of travels and business, unlike any other author I have read before”
