My review:

One Year lived is an inspiring book about Adam's own personal journey visiting various countries over the course of a year. I really admire him for doing this and felt an immediate connection (I had done a similar thing back in 2001 when I left the UK to travel through Europe. I got as far as Rome in Italy and ended up staying but the intention had been to visit as many places as possible). Anyway this book starts with a list. A bit like a bucket list of things to do before you die but with the emphasis on living. What things would you like to do? Where would you like to visit?

The book then takes you through personal accounts of his trips to Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Australia, the Philippines and Europe. His casual style takes you there with him and you really feel like you get to know him and the places he visits.

An excellent read for all but especially for those of you that have ever written a list of your own or thought about exploring different countries. Warning though, this book might just be the push you need to make it reality!
