A Random Traveler is a collection of stories compiled from a blog of Leo’s travels to almost one hundred Countries around the world.
The stories are funny thoughtful insightful and brutally honest.
Leo chronicles his adventures across seven Continents and offers his unique perspective on a few of those trips. The book includes the blog stories: A visit to Saudi Arabia as an invited guest of the king, the twenty six day journal with a travel group for young people, how he managed to become the principal in an orphanage in Cambodia and many more short stories, musings, and rants that will leave you eager to pack your bags and go on an adventure.
This book is a colorful uncensored look at travel, written with the element of truth missing from most other travelogues.
If you are looking for a travel guide this is not the book for you, but if you are looking for an entertaining, real, and honest perspective of travel, and a humorous view of other cultures and how they can be perceived by us then this book is for you.
As the synopsis suggests if you are looking for a travel guide then this one isn’t for you! This is one mans journey and what he thought of it!
It’s definitely a unique read with part journal entries and part stories of the authors experiences and I like the way this book was set out.
The author has witty style and he keeps it light which helps you drift off with him to the most beautiful places and live vicariously though his stories
This book is definitely for the person who loves to travel or just for someone who wants to ignite some wanderlust without leaving the comfort of the sofa
