One year. Six continents. Twenty-two countries. Endless stories to tell.

In October 2002, Elliott Hester sold his car, abandoned his apartment, and took off alone on a trip around the world, during which he drifted to more than fifty destinations. Elliott’s tales about his travels range from the bizarre to the hilarious to the flat-out shocking.  Travel with him as he:
 
* Chases off transvestites in the South Pacific
* Gets drunk on Estonian moonshine at the maker’s eightieth birthday party
* Impersonates Samuel L. Jackson at the 38th International Film Festival in the Czech Republic
* Ponders the Finnish tradition of sprinting from steamy sauna to plunge into the frigid Baltic Sea---naked!
* And much more

Only an around-the-world excursion could produce such outlandish, hair-raising, hysterical adventures.  And only Elliott Hester could make such vivid observations and write such vibrant insights about life---and people---on the road.
