Item description for Gap Year: A True Story of Heartbreak and Drama by Benjamin Adam...
This is a true story of a boy who leaves London alone to see the world and experience life as others know it. Tired of finding so many English people in Australia, Ben changes direction for a solo experience of India, Mexico, Brazil, and many more flamboyant and colourful countries, chasing women and sunsets along the way.
But life is not all smiles for this young travelling backpacker. He lays awake at night thinking purely of Susanne. Attempting to distract his emotions, he visits a licensed brothel in Down Town Bangkok, gets harassed by precious stone dealers in western India, has an unwanted 15 hour acid trip in Rio, eats 30 hard boiled eggs in under an hour in Guatemala, and finds himself being led away by the first stranger he meets in Sao Paulo Brazil. His naivety will make you laugh, and his love for Susanne will make you cry.
This book will make you want to travel alone, and for those travellers who already have -- it will allow you to resurrect some old, but unforgettable memories.

amazing book! Aug 19, 2005
This book convinced me to travel and made me want to see the world. You could connect with Ben, and his experiences make you laugh outloud. Definitely a must read for those who are travellers or those who have always wanted to travel.
A must read for all travellers! Aug 18, 2005
So many funny stories that you wonder what can possibly happen next. This is great, especially if you're a guy and you want to know what not to do in a foreign country! Go buy it.
Time for a holiday?..... Aug 18, 2005
An excellent rollercoaster ride of a book, with more ups and downs than snakes and ladders! The book chronicles a young man's adventures as he travels the world looking for love and excitement, and by the time you reach the heart-breaking climax, you will either want to start again from the begining, or book the first flight to south america!
