World's greatest vagabonders
--Uh. I think it's this way...--
Ever read the back of one of his books where it describes his life? Boxer, lumberjack, miner, sailed around the indies....you name it.
By the way, do all the non uk people know who MP is? and do you get his travel shows in your countries?
Wilfred Thesiger, author of Arabian Sands.
I would say that Paul Theroux is NOT one of the world's greatest vagabonders, considering that he has a very condescending attitude about the places he visits, and seems to be extremely set in his views... Others may think differently, but this is just my opinion of him.
Not necesserily the smartest, but...
We met this 26 yrs old from CA in Bolivia. He bought a 26 foot sailboat. Someone showed him on the bay how to sail and while doing so he mentioned Ben that he is sailing to Mexico. Ben bought a hand held GPS and decided to do that himself, too. While there he decided that he would sail on to central america. In Costa Rica he decided that he would sail to Australia. After a few days of not getting very far he realized that he need to wait a few months for the winds to shift, so he took a left turn and landed in Ecuador.
This was 9 months ago, and he didn't answer the email that I sent him a few weeks ago. Where are you, Salty Ben?
