"...I literally could not put this book down..."

"...witty, hilarious and unique..."

"...It's hard to give this book justice in a paragraph. It is witty, educational, thought provoking, clever and a thousand more things ... a must read!"

What kind of student would go halfway across the world to stir up an independence movement in his summer break?

 At nineteen, Jamie was nicely on track to becoming one of the most boring people in England, but an impulse trip to the jungles of Kalimantan changed all that. Spurred on by what he encountered among the tribespeople of the Krayan, he made a decision to discover the truth of the world around him, however uncomfortable that truth would turn out to be.

From the killing fields of Indonesia and the refugee camps of Palestine, to the girly bars of the Philippines and beyond, this is the remarkable true story of how this decision came to define his life, seeing him visit some of the least accessible and most volatile places on earth, often armed with little more than a set of disarmingly rosy cheeks and a quirky sense of humour. But this is more than just another travel book; it is a story of global change, seen through the eyes of someone who never knew any better.
