    An excellent diary of a journey of a lifetime.

    This was a wonderful account of the author's travels in 1975/76. The diary covers about a year from August 1975 to the end of August 1976. It starts from where she goes to Amsterdam to work various jobs to save up for her trip of a lifetime. The ‘Magic Bus’ ticket would cost only £60 for one way back in 1975. It would be a six week journey. She would travel through various countries: Athens, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Yugoslavia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and India. I love diary format and have read a couple of India travel diaries before-but these were both written by men. This book gives a woman's point of view of her journey. A nice easy reading concise style. Very accurate and well presented. I love the cover too. I love details like this-she lets us know the prices per night of the various hostels and hotels-they seem incredibly cheap, just a few pence! I was fascinated by these tiny costs! Fabulous details, she really captures the complete essence of her trip. There was so much in it, an excellent read which was definitely my kind of book. This was such a good book which I just kept on reading. Every word was of interest, it never got boring or repetitive. One of the best travel diaries I've read. Black and white photos are included too. I read it hungrily, it gave me a thirst for knowledge about this incredible place. I wonder if the author has any more travel diaries of other trips that she might release? I do hope so and I would definitely be reading them. A fantastic travel memoir which I can very highly recommend.
