Publisher Comments:

Have you ever made a drunken bet? Worse, still, have you eveer tried to win one? In attempting to hitchhike round Ireland wich a fridge, Tony Hawks did both, and his foolhardiness led him to one of the best experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty traveling companion-cum-domestic appliance, he made his way from Dublin to Donegal, from Sligo through Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry, Cork, Wexford, Wicklow--and back again to Dublin. In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge met a real prince, a bogus king, and the fridge got christened. They surfed together, entered a bachelor festival, and one of them had sex without the other knowing. And unexpectedly, the fridge itself became a momentary focus for the people of Ireland.

An international bestseller, Round Ireland with a Fridge is a classic travel adventure in the tradition of Bill Bryson with a dash of Dave Barry.

Synopsis:

A drunken bet led Tony Hawks to hitch-hike around the circumference of Ireland over one month--with a refrigerator in tow--which became what he calls the best experience of his life. Hawks shares his remarkable adventure that was emotional, inspirational, and downright silly at times. 8-page photo insert.

I loved this book. It was a mixture of funny, sad, and the weird. I couldn't stop reading this book and not sure if I could do it on a bet for 100 Pounds! But love how Tony Hawks gets a major following as he goes around Ireland. A must read.
