When Travel Bug Bites Sam

About the Book

The book is essentially a travellouge. The travels take you to a hippie commune in New York, to grape picking in a small French village, to a Gandhi Ashram in France, witnessing bull fighting in Spain, spending a fortnight in the Great Sahara desert, seeing the world famous Pyramids, a boat ride through the heart of Lake Nasser, to a train journey through the sandy desert of Sudan, a unique truck journey from Khartoum through the Darfur region, to the dense equatorial forests and Pygmy lands of Congo, to the National Parks of Tanzania and much more....
Africa is a huge continent and the average reader is not very informed about its diversity or people. The book gives you a first-hand knowledge about a large part of Africa. While the northern parts are inhabited by Arab people, the central and southern parts are inhabited by black Africans. Most of this region were very underdeveloped at the time the travels were undertaken. As a result, only the very adventurous hitch hikers only attempted to traverse this region and seeing an Indian hitch hiker there was even more a rare phenomenon. The young adventurous readers will find the book very interesting as well as informative.
