A Random Traveler

Leo is a popular travel blogger that has visited over a hundred countries around the world. A Random Traveler is a collection comprised of his best travel stories, offering his unique perspective on the places he visited and the people he met on his trips.

A sharp and hilarious travelogue that has turned into a successful blog

In these chronicles, Leo narrates his humorous adventures across seven continents. Read about his visit to Saudi Arabia as an invited guest of the king; a twenty-six day journal of traveling with a group of young tourists, the amazing story of how Leo became the head of a Cambodian orphanage and many, many more.

Funny, thoughtful and brutally honest stories from all around the world

A Random Traveler is not a regular travelogue. With rare honesty, it brilliantly weaves a surprising and entertaining perspective of travel, and offers a humorous view of other cultures and how western tourists perceive them.

Pack your bags and go on an adventure you will not forget!

A Random Traveler is an unique book. It’s not exactly a travel guide – it’s a collection of the best travel stories by Leo Getz, a popular travel blogger who has visited over a hundred countries around the world. Not only does he tell his stories, which are sometimes fun, sometimes weird, often something inbetween, but he also talks about the people he meets on his trips and places he visited.

The author has a witty sense of humor which shines through in his writing, and in the things he’s experienced while traveling. After reading this book, I had to stop myself from planning a trip to somewhere – it really put me in a mood for traveling and experiencing new things and new cultures.

You can also sense the author’s honesty while reading this book. He doesn’t embellish much, and his accounts sound truthful, although sometimes hilarious. An enjoyable book that will make you laugh out loud at times. But be warned…You might also feel an itch to travel just about anywhere after reading this.
