Publisher's Summary

When Sue Williams set out on a 10-year series of journeys around the world, she expected glamour, excitement, a leisurely education. She simply didn't bargain for disaster, spine-tingling terror, and the kind of mind-numbing embarrassment that confronted her at nearly every turn. In fact, if she'd known she would wake up naked inside a sleeping bag, with all her belongings vanished, on a patch of wasteland in Central African Republic; get lost on a dark mountain top in Malawi; be stalked by a wife-hungry politician in Mexico; hitch 1000 kilometers in the wrong direction in Argentina; and discover, too late, she'd just eaten dog stew in China, she would have never left home in the first place!

Getting There is the hilarious, terrifying and, most of all, inspiring account of Sue's travels across the globe over 20 years. It isn't about destinations or pleasant arrivals, but journeys and the battle to get there, fuelled by curiosity, faith in humanity, naivety, and even extraordinary ineptitude - the tales of the true traveler.
