A Backpacker's Odyssey: Travelling between the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer

Newly minted MBA Frances Pordes was faced with a choice: continue climbing the career ladder at a major oil company or fulfil the dream of her life. Join an adventurous 20-something year-old as she explores over 30 countries in Africa, South America, the South Pacific and Asia: does Frances manage to get into a silence-only meditation retreat in Thailand as #84 on the wait list? Will she survive the Roaring Forties as a deckhand on a bankrupt vessel? What's Pitcairn - an inaccessible island inhabited by 50 descendants of the mutineers of the Bounty - really like? And will Frances get caught when, head-over-heels-in-love, she tries to sneak onto an international flight as a stowaway? Let Frances' global adventure inspire you to take the first step on your own journey...
