Are you longing for adventure? Let’s be honest, after the 2020 we’ve had, who isn’t!? I love travelling, and although heading off with family and friends is brilliant, as a singleton, that often means heading off on my own. My adventures aren’t quite up to the level Aaron’s describing here, but there’s so much great advice here. Not only is the book informative, but it’s written in an entertaining, chatty style, and is a great, easy read. Whether it’s breaking the world down into Tiers (happily, not THOSE Tiers!), so you know which bit of the world might be best for you to start your adventure with, guiding you through what to pack, or warning you about the pitfalls of not being completely sure your transport will take you where you need to be, you’ll be whisked along on the adventure.

A really useful read for anyone either planning, or just tempted by, a Big Adventure; this book will make you want to hit the road!
