For those who think he is callus or jaded in his writings then you are a tourist not a traveler. If you want sunshine and resorts watch the Travel Channel. Traveling is not about package tours. Traveling is about experiencing life and sometimes it is ruff.

His experiences mirror so many of my experiences around the world that sometimes I feel like I am reading my own story. As for those that don't like the fact that he poured his heart out about his battle with alcoholism,they have obviously never suffered from the disease. People just want to read about the romantic dream of escapism and not the pitfalls along the journey. Unfortunately, traveling always has its ups and downs and his writings about his battles and victories are mixed in well together.
