When I first stepped out of the warmth and safety of my mother’s kitchen on the stormy south coast of Ireland, there were no such fancy tags as ‘The Ultimate Hitchhiker’ or ‘Extreme Backpacker’. I left home with just a few pounds in my pocket, my passport and a naivete that makes me shiver when I think about it now. Like a blank slate I was ready to be written on. There are many personal stories here, including tales from the Highlands, the long and lonely roads through Europe, hitchhiking trips to the Greek Islands, and dangerous times in the Middle East and North Africa. There are accounts of two overland trips from Ireland to Australia; the first via the east thru Afghanistan, India and Southeast Asia; the second via the Americas and the Pacific Islands. The book begins with the travels of the Lincot Man in outback Australia with flashbacks to early life in Ireland. There are tales of rough travel through the islands of Indonesia and the Philippines – travelling with the locals, on trains, terrible buses, and cockroach infested boats – to places ‘where no human hand ever set foot!’ There are several different aspects and colours to this book and I hope you will travel with me to the end. I promise you more laughs than tears. Get out the atlas or follow me via the internet.”
