Andrew John Rainnieabout this book: My book is a travelogue that charts the round-the-world adventure I took in 2011, quitting my job, my life, everything, to follow my childhood dream and see different countries and cultures; In short, being Indiana Jones.
While on the road, I kept a travel journal, but when I returned home, I found it was filled with errors and missing many stories due to the rushed nature of writing on the road, so I rewrote it and then polished it, added some of my favourite pictures and created an eBook. The title comes from my chapter in Bangkok, where the flies and insects kept eating my right leg, but not my left!
Anyone who is thinking about travelling alone should read my book - as in real life I am very blunt in my writing, and describe the good times and the bad in equal measure. I show the physical and emotional stresses that you face when backpacking, as well as highlighting some mistakes you might not wish to make! For anyone wondering if they should quit the daily grind, escape the rat race and go travelling, reading my book my make up your mind one way or the other. In fact, everyone should read my book! As a screenwriter, I was conscious of telling a story through my blog to those reading at home, so as different story elements 'appeared' I was able to incorporate them into a narrative, though one based solely on actual events.
The cover was from a Bags & Drag fancy dress party in New Zealand, where the men dressed as women and the women dressed in bin bags. It was at the high point of my journey, and the ludicrous nature of it makes me smile still. In fact, one of the hardest parts of writing the book was reliving all the vivid memories of my trip.
I hope you enjoy reading "My Right Leg Is Tastier Than My Left" as much as I enjoyed my year off traipsing around the world.
