Miss-Adventures: A Tale of Ignoring Life Advice While Backpacking Around So...
Tue 16 May 2017, 18:30 – 19:45 BST
Having announced her plans to quit her job and backpack around South America, humourist and gonzo journalist Amy Baker found herself on the receiving end of a whole bunch of over-the-top and seemingly unnecessary advice. Amy shrugged it all off of course... that is, until she ran into trouble.
After falling into a crevasse, swimming in crocodile-infested waters, dodging cocaine con artists and encountering handsome soothsayers, Amy soon starts to wonder if her mum, her boss and Carol from reception really were onto something. Weighing up their advice against that of known ‘Clever People’ like Tina Fey, Salvador Dalí and Mother Teresa, Amy establishes once and for all who it might actually pay to listen to.
Join Amy Baker as she talks about her experiences writing the book and her decision to ignore the all-too-often ridiculous advice we get from family and friends when we decide to travel, and to instead go in search of her own answers...one hilarious story at a time.
