Backpacker to Nomad travel memoir by Amit Vaidya
Amazon Review
From the very first story I was hooked. These travel stories kept me entertained all the way through. The authors journey is bumpy, but with the help of his various travel companions and determinations this ride just keeps going. I highly recommend this book to those like me who dream of a life of travel and exploring
Amazon Review
Really fun read, makes a person want to go travel. I thought the way the book weaved between adventure and mental self discovery was very smart. I believe the author has a second book and if so I will be reading !
Amazon Review
Forget all you've heard about the typical gap-year backpacking experience.This is one crazy ride! As he rarely travelled alone, there was usually a travelling companion to patch up his wounds, soothe his anxieties and share his many crazy experiences. But there is no end to this story for. Amit is still travelling, seeking adventures and - writing a sequel!
Amazon Review
one of the things that I loved most about Backpacker to Nomad. It wandered into different (and sometimes darker) corners than I would have visited on my own. The author's vivid and candid writing captivated me throughout. The sequencing and chapter segues were spot on.

TRAVEL STORY #1

PLANS? SURE, THEY WORK!

The rustles coming from the thick foliage beneath the iron spiked fence would normally have scared the living daylights of me. However, tonight, the potential of snakes, giant spiders, lizards, baby dinosaurs, and who-knows-what-else lurking didn’t matter. 

All that mattered was that my feet were firmly on the concrete ledge with my hands gripped tight around the fence’s rusty spikes. My ear-to-ear smile was evidence that he came through—it was the perfect spot.

Anticipation, which had grown throughout the day, was reaching the climax, so much so the electric energy buzzing through the air almost felt physical. The source emanated from the dome of lights and noise around Sydney Harbour way down in the distance.

Although daylight had disappeared hours ago, the atmosphere only grew stronger by the minute. And apparently, so did the dampness on my body. Since arriving in Australia two weeks ago, not a day had gone by without leaking like a pierced hosepipe. It was the dead of the night and still warmer than most English summers. But the heat was nothing compared to the scolding giant ball of fire that made its presence known during the day.

 It loved playing a sickening game to torment us Brits. The game was hide and seek, not a friendly one, but a seek-and-destroy, “I’m-going-to-burn-you-to-death” type of game. Relentless in its sadistic pursuit…
