After a book swap with a friend I could not put this book down. It’s a great insight into Hap’s adventures, Hap seems genuine writing wth honesty, from his lowest lows, to his highest highs. I learned the importance of travel, and the consequences that can follow.
Inspirational read that will appeal to all ages and walks of life. If you have not travelled a lot this book will transport you to some unique parts of the world. If you have travelled you will find yourself reminiscing and probably plotting your next adventure by the end. A great gift for any one in their teens or early twenties...the author has a great message in here about setting goals and following your dreams.
An absolute page turner! Finished it in a couple of sessions - just couldn't put it down! An open, honest heartfelt account of one mans mission to work on every continent before he turns thirty. Funny, thrilling and at times sad, it appeals to those with a sense of adventure and a love of travel.
A fantastic, honest story about a truly inspirational journey around the world, which had me both laughing out loud and in tears. I didn't want to put this book down! I finished the book feeling inspired to pursue my own travel dreams. Highly recommend!
Amazing book! Couldn't put it down but had to force myself to since i didn't want it to end! Had me laughing out loud the whole way but also wanting to cry. Such a good read and has helped inspire me to go out and travel. Nobody could be disappointed reading this book!

He is currently splitting his time between Melbourne, Australia and Nelson, New Zealand but who knows where he'll end up next.
