I am pretty sure i read this before i embarked on my travels, so obviously it is not off putting! While his experiences are totally different to mine, i can relate with much that Moore has to say!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Sent to Sabavana
Ooooooh I can't wait to read this one! Thanks so much Megami :-) Hopefully there's something you like on my Shelf that I can send you in return.
I haven't managed to read this one yet, but it's on loan to SweetPetunia who is in hospital at the moment, and is also a Peter Moore fan.
Peter came back home with me, as SweetPetunia already had a stack of books to read while she recovers - back onto Mt TBR he goes!
SKingList had a BookRay going for this book here
, but it got lost in the post :-(, so this copy is going to finish the Ray in it's place.
I haven't read this yet so hopefully it won't get lost again before it gets back to me :-)

Thanks heaps to Sabavana for restarting this ring - I didn't think I'd get a chance to read it, but really look forward to it!
A nice light-hearted read will be a good break from the Booker Longlist books I've been reading :)
Fantastic book, absolutely loved it and found it heaps better than either Molvania (which it reminded me slightly of) or Swahili for the Broken-Hearted, which I read recently on a bookray.
While his Humour was still quite black, it was genuinely funny in this one and he had some great stories to share. Remind me never to travel with him :)
Posted to freesia this morning.
Thanks, puppymummy, this looks funny and educational. "How to avoid jet lag: avoid jets."
This was an entertaining read - better to dip into than to read from cover to cover. However, as a traveller myself, I ended up feeling completely envious of all the amazing places he'd been to - and that he had the temerity /not/ to enjoy them! Honestly! You go to the other side of the world, adventuring up the Amazon on a tiny boat - an experience few of your readers will ever have - but what you describe of it is that you missed having variety in your food? Come on!
I guess with this style of humour, though, it's easier to tell horror stories and worst case scenarios than genuinely convey beauty and peace and making connections with people from other countries. I don't know: I'm glad to have had the opportunity to read it, and there were a few good tips, but it was the tone that started to irritate me.
PMing charliewendy ...
Peter Moore has arrived safely!
Like most of those before me I didn't read this cover to cover. It started off very entertaining but after a while I found it a bit repetitive. I found it frustrating that he keeps mentioning fantastic places and experiences but doesn't go on to describe them. I would love to read a journal of his travels because he has been to some fascinating and obscure places.
Off to Jackson371 today 22nd may.
If anyone still wants to read this book but hasn't had a chance due to hungry post boxes, there is another ring/ray (not sure which) happening here
