Sleeping with Strangers: A Vagabond's Journey Tramping the Globe
Other Places Publishing, Aug 1, 2011 - 408 pages
In Sleeping with Strangers, the discernable, observant, and overly daring Jeremiah Allen takes readers across the world, hitchhiking through rural Africa, on endless train rides through bustling India, on foot through the Himalaya, traveling by rickshaw in Thailand, by boat in Laos, and ferries in Vietnam. In the course of his epic and enlightening journey tramping the globe, Allen endures danger, delay, and dismaying circumstances. In his journey, Allen does what he fears most: to have complete ownership over his fears. Setting out without a planned itinerary, the intrepid Allen gauges human psyches by placing himself in uncomfortable situations. Talking with local Africans, Indians, Nepalese, Thai, Laotians, and Vietnamese, as well as other travelers who are like himself, he meticulously tells the tale of human psychology, history, politics, and beauty that exists in a developing world in the midst of globalization. Witness to it all, Allen experiences adventures that only those with a true sense of the word can share. Brimming with his signature humor and knack for observations, this engrossing chronicle is entertaining reading for both the ardent adventurer and the armchair traveler.
