Backpacking With a Bunion

A Journey of Discovery and Adventure in South East Asia

Backpacking With A Bunion is a travelogue of discovery and adventure across the countries of S E Asia. The journey begins in Bangkok – where else; and ends up on the island of Flores in Indonesia. My story as a mature ‘gapper’ is outlined in the Introduction, as well as some of the highlights from my trip. The reader if so inclined could follow my journey on a map – it works quite well as a jigsaw, though I have certainly left plenty of room for flexibility and spontaneity. Travel, like life is not always straightforward, but that’s the joy in it. Each chapter is given a descriptive heading to provide a unique flavour to the areas visited. They are roughly in chronological order to give a sense of continuity to my travelling over a period of eighteen months, but could stand alone as set pieces. I have tried to make the book as varied as possible with various quotations, travellers’ tales and humour and more serious religious, cultural, political and environmental observations. I have included some facts and figures (where appropriate) on history, geography, transport arrangements, places of interest and personal experiences, thus painting a picture in words of sights, sounds and happenings. The book concludes with S E Asia in a nutshell, a summary of what the traveller might expect and emphasising that travelling changes the traveller. And hopefully reading this book will change the reader’s perspective too.

Terry is a writer, environmental campaigner, gardener and anti-natalist. But for much of the last twenty years he has spent travelling the world. His first major trip was overlanding from Nairobi to Cape Town. Five months in trucks, buses, coaches, pick-ups and God knows what else. Then from Outback Down Under to Uncle Sam’s Backyard and from the Wilds of Patagonia to the Hermit State of North Korea. And many places in between. He now has two travel books to his name; Backpacking With A Bunion, all about South-East Asia and Terry's Travels ... Orcland to the Ottomans, a trip through Australia and New Zealand, as well as much of Asia. This volume is going to be the first of many, as he covers the continents of Africa and the Americas too. He’s started writing about India already.
