Summary

Knee-deep in a swamp in the depths of the Bolivian jungle, hunting for anacondas in a pair of sandals, it occurred to George that perhaps he should have booked that all-inclusive honeymoon to the Maldives after all.

Join George and Rachel on their hilarious journey through the wilds of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, as they climb volcanoes, fish for piranhas, trek through the Amazon rainforest, take death-defying bus rides, sample some of the continent’s strangest delicacies, and try to get to Machu Picchu. Armed only with a basic knowledge of Spanish, small backpacks, and bags of enthusiasm, they set off together on what promised to be a life-changing adventure.

Another Excellent book by George Mahood

Since I read Free Country I've loved all of Georges books (Free Country is still the best). Currently listening to Operation Ironman as I swim and not only is it funny it is inspiring. What a brilliant writer and a genuinely nice guy. This book is also very funny and gets top marks. Keep writing George!

Vivid atmosphere, scenery and storytelling

Brilliant story describing the adventure, culture and scenery of travelling in South America. Loved the humour from people watching observations and all the characters they meet along the way.

Another great listen from George

Great story. Another insight in to the author’s life experiences. Good quality audio and well performed. I’ve listened to all of George’s books and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. If this is your first book from George then I strongly recommend ‘Free Country’ as your next.
