Read in April, 2010

Nicely written and paced, easy to read and fun. However, I was surprised that the point of this adventure seemed to be "moving very fast without stopping." They traveled to some of the oddest and most exotic places in the world only to spend the whole time calculating the best way to get to the next destination. Almost all of the description focuses on boats, buses, rental cars, and trains. Almost all of the conversations are with fellow travelers and the occasional port agent. Since they didn't set themselves a time limit, I didn't understand why they couldn't hang out in one place for a few days so the reader could get more of a flavor.
