The Book

This is an account of an 18 year journey of discovery on the road that took the author through 135 countries and over 250,000 miles. After a slow start of seven years travelling and working in Europe, two years national service spent mainly in the Congo and three years working in Canada earning enough money to strike out on his own, Brugiroux then spent the next six years constantly on the move. As a hitchhiker, using every conceivable type of transportation, he lived from his savings on only one dollar a day. Living with and like the local people, he travelled the length of the Americas, through the Pacific Islands, the Far East, the USSR, the Middle East and the whole of Africa. Jailed seven times, caught up in wars and very nearly drowned in administrative red tape, Brugiroux never contemplated giving up on his quest to experience mankind in all its despair and glory.
