I was a little disappointed with this book, although I admit I had high expectations. I wanted something that would inspire me to travel, and remind me of the spirituality of the journey. I expected incredible tales and narrow escapes. What I got was some amusing anecdotes and instructions on how to dismantle various kinds of sprinklers.
I'm into pilgrimages lately. Which is way this ended up on the library pile. But after a quick read, and it is a quick read, I'll give it that, I have to say I didn't find it particularly inspiring or informative. Although, it got the extra star for the hint about the magic tokens.
