"A hilarious travelogue for a social media generation ... Bedford [leaves] the door open for another journey. If it is anything like this trip, it'll be worth reading too." --Publishers Weekly

Sue, a disenchanted waitress, embarks upon a year-long quest around the world with her friend, Sara--who's exasperatingly perfect. Expecting a whimsical jaunt of self-discovery, Sue instead encounters an absurd series of misadventures that render her embarrassed, terrified, and queasy (and in a lot of trouble with Philippine Airlines).

Whether she's fleeing from ravenous lions, dancing amid smoking skulls, trekking Annapurna underprepared, or (accidentally) drugging an Englishman, Sue's quick-witted, self-deprecating narrative might just inspire you to take your own chaotic adventure.
