really liked it

A great read! I’m not a “Parrot Head but I've always liked Buffett's music filled with neat lyrics and calypso beats. Guess that’s the tropical side of me! Growing up in Miami, surfing (on mini waves), fishing all over and enjoying the islands of the Keys, made Buffet’s story of his awesome journey through the tropics to celebrate his 50th birthday very real to me. The book was published in year 2000 so it was kind of neat to realize a music icon from my past was close in age to me! It was fun traveling with him to places I know and places I would love to visit. Even with my limited knowledge and dislike of flying, I enjoyed his passion for airplanes’ tales. Buffett has a way with words and humor that kept me reading! Now I have another purpose for scavenging through yard sales for more of his books.
