    It was a very well edited account of a year s travel in South America Tony Hastie is bigger on action than description but that being said it was a good yarn, it moved along and it kept my interest I recommend it for anyone who is interested in travel and backpacking Its worth the read for anyone planning a trip to those parts.

    3.5 stars rounded up.I really enjoyed reading this, and recapturing the memories of some of our own recent South American adventures Bolivia tried to kill us too It s less travel guide,humorous biographical account, and for me it had some real laugh out loud moments dog hire kiosks It s definitely kiwi style writing and it reads like Tony is recounting his adventures to you over a drink at the pub, in a lovely way It s not the most polished self published title I ve ever read Th 3.5 stars rounded up.I really enjoyed reading this, and recapturing the memories of some of our own recent South American adventures Bolivia tried to kill us too It s less travel guide,humorous biographical account, and for me it had some real laugh out loud moments dog hire kiosks It s definitely kiwi style writing and it reads like Tony is recounting his adventures to you over a drink at the pub, in a lovely way It s not the most polished self published title I ve ever read There were some very random page breaks in my print edition, and I agree with other reviewers that colour photographs would have been better than the black and white, where it s sometimes hard to tell what you re actually looking at These factors annoyed me at first, but I have to admit, became less of a worry as I got drawn into the recounting of their travel adventures

    The writing won t be impressive, but if you enjoy hiking with your significant other and are familiar with South American culture you will be very entertained by this book If you use kindle instead of a paper book you get better quality of pictures.

    FunI chose this rating because the fun I had reading this book Honest and upfront, Tony Hastie paints a vivid picture of down and dirty traveling I am envious.


  8. Annica Annica says:

    Contemplating a trip around South America myself I had high hopes for this book Unfortunately it is not very descriptive of the countries the author travels in, it s mostly a personal account, almost biography style After a few treks and hostels the story is just repetitive.


  9. Stacey Stacey says:

    I read this in anticipation of our own upcoming travels to South America.some funny parts but overall not well written.
