I first came across Jamie’s travels via his website Great Big Scary World and loved the sense of adventure that was behind all his travels.
I was lucky/unlucky enough to have a climbing accident that have put me out of action for 6 weeks and counting but it also gave me time to slow my life down and do more reading and this is where “The Boy Who Was Afraid of the World” comes in, Jamie have written a truly inspirational and honest book, hitchhiking is maybe not your cup of tea but this will leave you longing for the freedom of the open road and the magic moments with the strangers you encounter along the way.
The digital book is about 300 pages, I started reading one morning and simply ignored the world around me for the next few hours while I learned the ins and outs of hitchhiking and couchsurfing with Jamie as he zigzagged across Europe while meeting up with friends and family. Along the way we share his ups and down as this travel story turns into so much more 😉

Now where did I put my backpack all those weeks ago and I wonder if my crutches will make it easier for me to be picked up 😀
