Waterstones Says

A very funny travelogue from a most unlikely explorer. If you’ve been tempted by adventure travel, but felt vastly unqualified/insufficiently practical/downright terrified, this is the book for you.

A few years ago Sue Perkins was asked if she would like to make a documentary on the Mekong River, travelling from the vast delta in Vietnam to the remote and snowy peaks of Tibet.

Up until that point, the farthest East she had  been was Torremolinos, in the Costa Del Sol.

As she says:

Here's the thing:
I am scared of flying.
I have zero practical skills.
I can't survive if I am more than a three minute walk from a supermarket.
For the last seven years I have suffered with crippling anxiety.
I bolt when panicked.
I cannot bear to witness humans or animals in distress.
I have no ability to learn languages.
I am a terrible hypochondriac.
Oh, and I am no good with boats.
So I said yes.

Well, of course!

“Marvellous!”

I've just read this after watching a fantastic series by Sue on Japan. I wasn't disappointed. It's hilarious from the very first page in Vietnam and she is the perfect travel companion from that point... More
