Welcome, traveller!

This Web site is an on-line supplement to my travel book "One for the Road", published in January of 2008. It's a fun and informative read about independent travelling, taking you on three different journeys:

  • Through Patagonia and Antarctica the cheap way
  • Through Southern Africa along the backpacker trail, visiting South Africa, Swaziland, Botswana, Victoria Falls and Namibia
  • On and off the Trans-Siberian Railway, Vladivostok to Moscow

If you don't already own the book, don't worry. You can get a digital copy through the menu on the left, right now, at no cost! There's also a way to get the book for those of you who insist that books should come on paper. That option unfortunately carries a price tag.

If you enjoy humorous tales of trips to foreign parts, I do believe you will find the book worth your while. Also, if you plan on doing a trip similar to any of these three, definitely read at least the chapter about "your" trip, as a preparation!

Happy trails!
