Something was seriously wrong when four policemen entered my classroom and signalled for me to leave with them. Sharon Cracknell has caught the travel bug and her desire to see the world whisks her off on some unusual adventures. Her voyage begins in Indonesia where she is flung headfirst into a full time teaching job and finds herself caught up between the corrupt police force and the shady school owner, facing the prospect of five years in an Indonesian prison. Escaping by the skin of her teeth, her enthusiasm is not dampened as she goes on to climb Kilimanjaro, explore several of the seven ‘Stans and climb to Everest base camp. These laugh out loud tales of her travelling highs and lows will have you guessing at what perilous escapades are next, but you will be wishing that you were there!

I got lent Sharon's book from a friend of mine to read whilst I was on holiday. I read it within 2 days, it was very good for a first novel. As a non long distance traveller myself I found it intriguing and felt like I was on the journey with her to all these remote places she visited and the subsequent tales she had to tell. A very good read all round!

I loved this book! The action starts straight away with a disastrous TEFL experience in Indonesia, leading to Sharon's arrest and threat of a long prison sentence. She then goes on to write about other adventures, from facing down predators in the Serengeti to surviving earthquakes near Mount Everest. This is a book about travel without the gloss - there will be altitude sickness, giant nettles and awkward 'lost in translation' moments - but Sharon writes about it all with humour, candidness and warmth. The author's personal voice shines through throughout the book and her observations are witty, often laugh-out-loud, and give a different take on the usual travel guide content. Overall a highly enjoyable read that leaves you wanting more.
