“Pedantic and redundant. I wanted so much more.“

“Just finished this book 12/21/2018. Interesting and inspiring. Jedidiah Jenkins tells great stories and is very honest and open throughout. One of my favorite books of 2018.“

“I felt like this book was an exercise in missed opportunities. I wanted to meet the local people, hear the foreign dialects, and taste the delicious chicken soup with the chicken feet hanging out. I felt this was a first trip abroad with a very entitled monolingual boy who was struggling with his faith and sexuality. His lack of discipline in learning the language cut him off from so much adventure,knowledge, excitement and love. So many unanswered questions. Did he feel secret attraction to Crosby? Was he tempted ? Had they had a drunken romp in the tent? Was that the real source of tension? Did his travel partner resent being depicted as a grifter and shallow drug addict? Is Jedidiah really that cheap and obsessed with money? I wanted to hear details about the quaint towns and the generous hosts. I felt like the book was the constant whining of a comfort deprived narcissistic rich kid. I wanted to witness the grandeur and beauty of The Motorcycle Diaries. None of that. This book was disappointing at best.“

“Really enjoyed this book. Well written, inspiring, and makes you reflect and think about what is really important in life. Highly recommend.“

“Jed has a way with words and is able to provide a perspective that makes you feel like you are really on the journey with him. He understands what a gift traveling, meeting people, and seeing the good in the world really is. He forces you to think deeper, want to do better, and explore what the world has to offer.“
