In his gap year between school and University, Giles travels far and wide along the student trail from Beijing to Bolivia by way of Thailand and the North Pole. Each week, with his trusty portable DAT and his Charterhouse rugby shirt, Giles travels to far-off foreign lands, and records his adventures for the benefit of the Radio 4 listener. And each episode, he makes a thumping great prat of himself.

I got this audio book thinking it was a genuine travel account. It is not - it is comedy. It is moderately funny - provided you can stomach all the heavy stereotyping. Lots of English cultural references that someone unfamiliar with English society might not get.
