Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Chris and his fellow adventurers embark on a wild, four-month journey as they travel the world.

Together, they climb Mount Sinai, ride donkeys through the Valley of Kings and party every step of the way. The young men become addicted to adventure, and it isn't long before they are plotting their next trip - this time to Timbuktu, a place of seemingly mythical proportions in the West African country of Mali.

Before long, their group gets larger in number, and soon, a small army of nine is making plans to head to Africa. They don't know what to expect, but then again, they don't care.

Once in Africa, they will need to navigate the desert, deal with corrupt officials and stomach extreme images of hardship and poverty. Along the way, they find quite a bit of adventure but also quite a bit of trouble.

Through it all, this group of adventure junkies finds out that the perfect place to quench their thirst for excitement is Somewhere in the Sand.

I loved this book!!! What a wonderful book first book from Chris Berggren. I was hooked at page one. If you like travel books/authors, such as Anthony Bourdain or Jon Krakauer or is you are a world traveler, this is a MUST read!!! The tale of the groups travels through Africa is funny, sometimes painful and adventurous.
