It's interesting how the author always starts each chapter with a news excerpt.

I wish I could have more time to to read... The leg to China seems just as interesting as the previous legs of the journey...

P.175 - "...I couldn't kid myself. They were fleeting connections, shallow and temporary and no substitute for the real thing."

Sounds like a phrase I'd use to describe my relationships with American girls here in Kentucky...

The author has a tendency to skip on writing on certain legs of the travel...such as the record of flying from Sao Paulo to Mombasa...it's nonexistent. I hope it's not because he's cheating by taking some comfortable modes of transportation!

I don't think I would be able to muster up enough courage to take on death-defying travels like the way Carl does...

Also, I'll comment on the etymology of the word "travel" later...

The opening line of the book flap says "Indonesian Ferry Sinks". It got me sold at first glance. Seems like the author, Carl Hoffman, is some sort of a renegade version of Bill Bryson...
