The Boy Who Was Afraid of the World

Book review.

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😀

    Kære Poul. Dejlig anmeldelse af The boy who was afraid of the world🙂
    En gang imellem er det en velsignelse at blive ‘grounded’. Så er det bare at overgive sig til læsning eller andre afslappende ting.
    En togrejse kan gøre det, det er bedre end at falde ned fra et bjerg🙂
    Håber, du snart er fit for fight.
    Mange gode hilsner,
    Hanna

      Kære Hanna,
      Mange tak, Det er sande ord, jeg havde tænkt på hvordan jeg kunne få tid til at læse mere, studere mere og så skete mit fald!
      Måske det var et tegn til at jeg skulle tage det lidt med ro🙂
      Jeg havde også overvejdet en lang tog rejse i min fremtid men nu blev det altså anderledes!
      Jeg fik gipsen af i går så jeg er ca halvvejs tror jeg men i det mindste kan jeg begynde langsomt med genoptræning og ikke “bare” sidde på min flade🙂
      Mange kærelige hilsner, Poul

        Kære Poul
        Håber, du får god hjælp til genoptræningen, efter 6 uger skal muskelmassen genopbygges, men du er forhåbentlig i hænderne på nogle gode fysioterapeuter.
        Rigtig god træning❤
        Kærlig hilsen Hanna

        Kære Hanna,
        Ja benet føles godt nok lidt svagt!
        Jeg har en aftale i Italien næste uge om at se en god fysioterapeut så det er onwards & upwards æ=
        Knus, Poul

      Hi Kate,
      Thanks for getting in touch and I should have warned you that reading this might cause itchy and restless feet😉
      Cheers, Poul
