Product description


' This book is fucking fantastic. It made me feel young again. These are the adventures that we only ever dream of, that are reserved for the truly free. Leigh, you love hard and let your soul take the wheel. The minute I closed it, I wanted to buy a one- way ticket to anywhere. Thank you for sharing and for waking me up. I couldn't put this book down. My husband stole it off me, he is a book snob, has read everything and absolutely fell in love with you and your story. Someone has to make it into a movie! Love love love and gratitude and fire, Con.'

- Constance Hall, author of Like a Queen and Still a Queen

'OMG, what an amazing story. This book really takes you into the heart of South America, but what makes it such a great read is not just the gripping travel story, it's the love story between a young woman on her first trip abroad and a Peruvian artisan. And beneath that is the compelling tale of a woman searching for and ultimately finding, self-love and self-acceptance.'

- Lisa Messenger, CEO of Collective Hub, author of Work from Wherever and Daring & Disruptive

5.0 out of 5 stars FUN FUN FUN!
By Romaine on 19 August 2019
This book was so much fun to read, every time I put it down to sleep or eat, I found myself too excited and needed to find out what happened next! This authentic work of non-fiction has everything; self-discovery through overseas danger, travelling, love and that all too familiar struggle with one's self-acceptance and self-love and how adventure and relationships can help overcome those struggles. They need to make this book into a good Aussie movie!!
