Short review only.

I expected much more from this travel memoir. It is an experience to step out in your fifties - leave your safe little world behind, take a step into the unknown and travel around the world for a year and on top of that back packing and in student hostels most of the time, using public transport and eating cheaply to make your money last.

The book covers all this but it was tame reading. I never felt excited however tricky the situation got or how interesting the place was and believe me she did go to interesting places. 

I did finish the book though I did find it dull throughout. 

Going back to the wedding, bridegroom has also arrived from Ghana with his mum. They had major problems with his visa and now we can all breathe again as its sorted out! Now its one task after another hoping everything falls into place on the big day!
