The World's Most Travelled Man is an eye-opening account of the universal human experience as seen from each corner of the changing world. Blending a romantic connection to nature through solitude and the social examination of culture, Bown fully immerses himself in each experience, however diverse, dangerous or dirty, veering way, way off the backpacker circuit to see the world through an unparalleled perspective. The World's Most Travelled Man is a journey of global proportions shared with the humility of a man who simply wants to satisfy his own curiosity and live life to the fullest.

Parents, tell your kids they'll end up like this if they drop out of school. This traveler thinks "traveler" is a vocation like terrorist or con-artist. But fifty years old and still living in his parent's basement, and no skills, not even the ability to write or tell a story.

Long, tedious story with brief glimpses of insight and humour. Wait for the Readers Digest version. Bown sometimes comes across as judgemental of others, and a bit of a hero to himself. Got to admit though, his travels are worthy of telling.
