Amazon Best-Seller List 2018

After losing his job, girlfriend, and life as he knew it, Tom decided to live out his lifelong dream of traveling the world. He turned to his guitar for income, sold most of his worldly possessions, and recruited two friends. The three of them set out with big dreams of grandeur adventures, only to realize a short way along that they didn’t have nearly enough money to support themselves. Soon they were sleeping under bridges, hitchhiking with drug dealers, befriending prostitutes, living as homeless persons, hopping trains, and finding all kinds of trouble to get into. 

Follow the hilarious true story of travel-gone-wrong, debauchery, and adventure as a broke indie-musician tries to find his place in the world, with the help of a cast of colorful characters he meets along the way.
