Grounded

An eye opening and fascinating slow travel journey from an acclaimed writer who circled the globe without ever leaving the ground In this age of globalism and high speed travel Seth Stevenson the witty thoughtful Slate columnist takes us back to a time when travel meant putting one foot in front of the other racing to make co. Seth and his girlfriend Rebecca decide they want to travel all the way around the world by surface travel ie no flying They set out via ships cargo and cruise buses trains regular speed and bullet trains and bicycles Their journey takes them across the Atlantic Ocean Germany Estonia Moscow across Siberia down to Japan China Cambodia Thailand and back east to and across Australia to New Zealand and back to the US And I know I ve missed some places I really enjoyed this though I disagree on his assessment of cruise ships There were some funny moments Although despite the leisurely travel pace there were times where they really seemed rushed and weren t able to enjoy where they were I guess some of it depended on the timing of the travel away from where they were as it was sometimes difficult to find a way to their next destination so unless they wanted to wait a week they might have to continue on right away He did talk about the different modes of transportation the history etc which I also found interesting

    I wanted to like this book what with a cool premise of going on an around the world journey without flying and all The first third of the book showed a uick writing style with some uirky tales But that's as far as I could get before realizing I didn't like this boring guy or what he had to say He drinks a lot tokes it up usually with people like himself But not in a romanticize substance abuse kind of way either Just

    Nicely written and paced easy to read and fun However I was surprised that the point of this adventure seemed to be moving very fast without stopping They traveled to some of the oddest and most exotic places in the world only to spend the whole time calculating the best way to get to the next destination Almost all of the description focuses on boats buses rental cars and trains Almost all of the conversations are with fellow tr

    This is not the book I wanted to read The book I want to read is the one written by Rebecca Mr Stevenson’s girlfriend who had to endure him on this trip I’m not sure her book will ever materialize so I’m stuck reviewing this one This was one of those books that I grabbed off the shelf because of the writer’s intention to travel around the world without getting into an air

    I am only giving this one star despite the fact that I think Stevenson is a very good writer with an engaging voice I was not bored at all reading this book But I am docking points for trip itself I cannot get my head around why they did it in this way I don't mean staying on the groundI am all for that and it's the reason I picked up this book in the first placeBut I thought their goal was to see the world Turns out the goal was

    I hadnt heard of Seth Stevenson before but now I'm glad I picked this upLike so many I am so used to not thinking about air travel as thana convenience and a one size fits all institution The author and his wife are able to pick up close up their apartment and live out of suitcases and backpacks as they sail take trains rent cars; and at one point take bicycles through Vietnam Going after Cacciato anyone? Their one taboo as they travel i

    To me this book seemed like a blog than the book of a professional writer you know a journalist who earns a living writing It is all bout the journey there is very little about the destinations and it is unapologetic about this even the interludes discuss transport bikes motorcycles cruise liners etc And it is strong in its anti plane sentimentsFor all this it is a uick and light read and it has some amusing parts
