Synopsis

In an inspirational tale of global adventure Ed Gillespie takes anything but a plane to circumnavigate the world. Cargo ships to camels, hitch-hiking to hovercrafts. Playing table tennis with heavyweight Ukrainian boxers. Border arrests and drug searches. Communing with a Costa Rican jungle sloth. Illustrated with dramacic photography, Ed's journey brings to vivid life the joys, and challenges, of slow, low carbon, overland travel. En route Ed realises that staying grounded in an age of climate change may lead us to rediscover the pleasures of what real travel is all about. Through the journey and adventure he delves into the philosophy of sustainable travel, reconnecting with community and our one and only lonely planet.
