Funny, emotional... great read
I didn't know what to expect, from this ebook. I've read many travel journals over the years... and left pleasantly surprised. I've traveled quite a bit for my personal life, and for my professional life as a former CNN anchor and current anchor at the ABC affiliate in Washington DC. I was left laughing at times, on edge at others, and inspired in the end. I'd hope to be able to have an equally adventurous experience in the near future. But until then, I can live vicariously through the stories featured in Wayward
A mesmerizing delve into a traveling simpleton. Unforgettable grit.
Irreverent insight by a seasoned music industry veteran
With the pop culture savvy of Chuck Klosterman and the cultural attention to detail of Bill Bryson, Gates brings life to the people and places he visits. This travel memoir is sad, funny, gross and highly entertaining. I'm glad I checked it out and you will be too.
