Wil says goodbye to his family and friends in North Wales, and hello to adventure in South America, heading into the unknown, away from comfort and predictability in a bid to 'let go'. From the beach he lives on with only a stray dog for company, to his final destination with its tearful goodbyes, Wil shares the joys and the trials of his search for freedom of the soul.
He talks candidly of friendships, drugs, sex, politics, of the fear and elation he experiences along the way, of how dangerously close 'letting go' can come to 'losing it' when the boundary between exploration and hedonism becomes blurred.
Wil Gritten writes with a wonderful self-deprecating sense of humour and refreshing emotional honesty, and his ability to make the most alien of places come to life means that the reader is transported away with him, feeling less like an observer and more like a travelling companion on Wil's journey.
