    “I just finished it about an hour ago and thought it was freaking amazing." --Backpacker Peter A. Richards

    Bob Downes took four months to backpack his way through Europe, Egypt, India, and southeast Asia, sleeping in a small tent or the occasional hostel.

    He recounts his travels in Planet Backpacker, part travelogue, part guide for other would-be travelers in the developing world.
