What could he do to find his Holy Grail?

The answer was so simple- a one way ticket to London, a couple of pairs of jeans, a back pack, a slouch hat, and a year of his life. The young man throws himself at the mercy of the world (Europe in particular), and begins his search.

His companion throughout the epic voyage is an enigmatic fellow by the name of Sam Gamgee, to whom he regularly communes, courtesy of a little yellow book with the curious bywater paper. What begins as a tepid attempt to cure loneliness develops into an almost magical relationship between the traveller and the fictitious mentor.

Instantaneous thoughts and impressions are often captured as they happen. From thoughtful notes penned while inside a sleeping bag in a French Youth Hostel, to hurried impressions scribbled while walking through Checkpoint Charlie at the height of the cold war, no opportunity is lost to record spontaneous observations. The story relates an unashamedly Australian view of the world, as seen for the first time by an ardent and wide-eyed suburban adventurer.

He is looking for something, he is not quite sure what it is, but he knows that he will recognize it when he finds it. This cannot happen until a fair degree of danger, confusion and wonder has been encountered. As is usually the case with intense experiences, awareness is heightened, and the usual helpings of humour and romance occur. And of course, Sam Gamgee gets to hear it all!
