This is a wonderful story of a young man who had a desire to see and travel the world. After graduating from college in 1969 he and a friend left for Europe in 1970. After 9 months of seeing Europe he eventually met other travelers who had been to India. This was the turning point for the author. In the next 4 years he went overland from Europe to India three times, traveling through Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, countries that are no longer available to travelers today.
His many travel adventures are told with humor and insight along with many travel tips on what not to when in a foreign country and culture. The author went on down to Australia through South East Asia in1975, homesteaded for 3 years, had two children and returned to the states in 1979.
A wonderful must read for the contemporary travel reader with a better understanding of the world we live in and hints as to how we can get along in this very diverse world today.
