Now reading…

Rowing to Alaska
Wayne McLennan; Granta Books 2005
 

I have just started reading this and by the end of the introduction I was hooked.  Travel writing is something I really enjoy and armchair travel, between my own trips, is a fantastic way to relax while others endure the rigours of exotic places.  I’ll let you know how it goes and write something up when I am finished.  Back to the chapter on drunken driving and cricket in the Outback…

[edit] I finished the book.  Most of the rest of the book seemed to involve beer in various exotic parts of the world while trying to make money with the locals.  Fishing, mining, tree planting, more fishing and more beer.  Great for the tube on the way to work.
